[PÈRE CASTOR]. LALOUVE, (pseud.) [Kate WOLFF] (illustrator). Au Pays Des 1001 Nuits; Lanterne Magique. Paris; Flammarion. 1935.

Small 4to. Original pictorial card covers, stapled; pp. [28], complete with the original glassine envelope tipped-in at the rear containing a printed sleeve enclosing numerous coloured sheets of cellophane; with a frontispiece and 11 other bold black-and-white Arabic designs constructed as templates for the magic lantern; with some splitting at staples, a little toning to covers, and some abrasion to spine, as usual, but unusually unused; elusive complete.
First edition. This is volume 14 in a series of 18 in the Images Lumineuses series. The stencils are designed to be removed from the book, cut out with a craft knife, and backed with variously coloured pieces of cellophane. A projector shone at them would then cast coloured images on a screen, giving the affect of stained glass. Only one copy located on OCLC (Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris).
