MADE IN GERMANY FOR ENGLISH KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN

[GAMES - Shapes]. Kindergarten Occupation and Amusement. Figure Laying.

[Made in Germany]. A.N.M. & Co. [i.e. A.N. Myers], [s.d., c.1890s?]
Box dimensions 210 x 155 mm. 5 sheets of printed coloured geometrical shape examples, and nine compartments with hundreds of stiff card shapes, in different colours, contained within nine compartments of a patterned paper-covered box, titled to lid. Worn and marked, with loss and pen trials to box, and a detached lid. Sheets marked and soiled, with some loss to corners and pen trials to verso.
A colourful shape laying activity for Kindergarten children, 'made in Germany', evidently for the English market of successful Victorian publishers and games producers A.N. Myers & Co. Given the eminently disposable nature of the item, a remarkable survival in any condition.

We could not find any holdings of this item in either COPAC or OCLC.
