      Call No:MSS 0099, F0981
      Abstract:Handmade, color illustrated booklet with overlaps, also known as a metamorphosis. Used for teaching morals to children near the mid-nineteenth century. The metamorphosis booklets can each portray three different scenes.[...] Each booklet is made of a long strip of paper folded vertically so that the two shorter ends meet in the middle to create two flaps. By raising the top flap or lowering the bottom one, a new scene is created.
