Meggendorfer's Lord Thumb & Damian, 1889
Lothar Meggendorfer (1847-1925) is called "The Genius of Movable Books." His use of rivets was unique in that a single pull tab would activate very life-like movements. His comic humor touched young and old alike. Meggendorfer was extremely successful in his day publishing dozens of movable titles translated into over 30 languages.
