Dean's Little Red Riding Hood c1850

Dean & Sons was an English publishing company that dominated the children's book publishing world in the latter half of the 19th century. With fierce competition all around them, they produced some of the most innovative children's movable books.

Little Red Riding Hood is one of their earliest pop-ups in the series.
