Folding telescopic paper peepshow depicting the view between Bingen and the Lorelei along the Rheine River in Germany, printed in lithography with hand colouring. Pink patterned paper-covered card covers with seven illustrated cut-out sections in between, joined in folding concertina style, with illustrated rear panel (eight illustrated sections in total). The upper cover with a hole through which to view the scene, continuing through the seven internal sections. Each section 17 x 12 cm, extending to c. 70 cm in length. Contained within the original blue card slipcase with pictorial printed paper title label to the front panel. A very good example, the covers with just a little rubbing and toning; the contents with a couple of old tape marks to the blank verso of each cover and some light occasional spotting to the blank paper joints are otherwise clean and bright throughout, free from any loss and with the colours remaining bold. The slipcase with a little spotting is otherwise in very good order. An excellent example.
A beautifully produced German telescopic peepshow offering a luscious, vibrantly-coloured view along the Rheine river looking towards the Lorelei rock (depicted on the final panel).
