London/NY: Nister, Ernest, 1904. Quarto. (15)ff. Illustrated with five double-page full-color chromolithographed pop-up scenes. These scenes depict soldiers, mostly British or Colonial, engaged in conflict. The text, illustrated in sepia, deals with children playing soldiers, and one poem in particular mentions the fighting of Indians, indicating a nod toward Nister's American audience. Trace of bookplate removal from front paste-down, else a fine copy in publisher's glazed chromolithographed boards, which show just a touch of shelfwear to corners and extremities. In the extremely rare printed dust wrapper, which is chipped in several places and has a small stain on front cover. Housed in a cloth clamshell box.
