A wonderful guide to traditional puppet-making techniques. Features glove puppets, string puppets of various types as well as useful sections on 'The Glove Puppet Theatre' and 'The String Puppet Stage'. Includes a number of charming contemporary illustrations/photos

In FAIR condition. The cover is in poor condition with several stains (including a large stain/water mark on the back cover). The binding is essentially tight though the front hinge has started to crack and the front endpaper is starting to work loose. General age discolouration with foxing to several pages. Grubbiness to some pages too. No major stains however. No annotations
