A real rarity from the creator of Curious George. Recently re-printed in a smaller format, this is the original 1942 edition of H.A. Rey's A Christmas Manger ("A New Kind of Punch-Out-and-Play Book") featuring four double-sided pages of punch-outs (plus several illustrated pages of text from Matthew and Luke). The pieces can be assembled to create a Manger scene. None are punched (though many are beginning to separate) and a corners of the front and back covers have been restored. Some rusting at the stapled binding, not affecting the stability or interior of the book. Complete and in VG condition.
