Description: La storia di un pisello e di una principessa fu raccontata spesso… ed è sempre la stessa!
An unusual die-cut, lift-the-flap re-telling of The Princess and the Pea written in verse.
Glazed, die-cut pictorial boards. Each 'page' is taller than the previous. Apart from some negligible wear to the rear board, the book is in superb condition inside and out. All flaps are undamaged and in full working order.
A lovely copy of a book that is scarce even in its native Italy!
Measures 22.5 cm × 18.5 cm (9″ × 7.4″) from the tip of the tallest 'page'. Irregular 8vo. Unpaginated.
