A couple of links

Did you ever have a metamorphosis book? The first American one dates to ca. 1775.

Just how many book titles have been taken from Hamlet? More than I care to count.

No, I've never had a metamorphosis book, but I'd love to find one. I've also always wanted a book with a fore edge painting but haven't been able to find one of those either.

I don't think I could afford a book with fore edge painting, but it would certainly be something cool to have.

I've had metamorphosis books at various points in my life and I think the kids had one or two but I have no idea what happened to them. We usually called them flip books.
