Boards rubbed and worn with some loss of paper at margins. Gutters split at hinges, with spine mull visible. Lacking front free endpaper. Contemporary owner's inscription on title page. First and third pop-up scene each with tear across main lower part of scene. A fairy in the second scene has lost her right hand. Unfortunately most of the central character Jack is missing from the fourth scene, only his legs remaining. Fifth scene has hinged tab on facing leaf becoming detached, and with tears to the scene itself where the tab is attached, this scene thus lying flat rather than popping up. No repairs or restoration attempted. Overall the sixth scene is the only one in very good working order, the first and third scenes are close to VG, but each have a tear without loss. The second and fourth have some pieces actually missing, a small piece on the second scene, a large one on the fourth. The fifth has tears and lies flat rather than popping up. ; No date [1896]. 14 leaves + 6 chromolithograph pop-up scenes. Illustrated papered boards with green cloth spine.
