Set Title:FATHER TUCK'S ANNUAL
Set Comment

Father Tuck's Annual is a broad set that also includes the LITTLE PEOPLE'S ANNUAL and the FATHER TUCK'S ANNUAL FOR LITTLE PEOPLE WITH "COME TO LIFE" PICTURES and TUCK'S ANNUAL WITH REALISTIC SURPRISE PANORAMAS. They are very difficult to date! Any help would be gratefully appreciated! They were issued for the Christmas season of each year to be given as gifts to celebrate the approaching New Year. Gift inscriptions are only partially useful in determining the publishing year.The annuals come in different editions and some have Tuck numbers and some do not. I referred to Adele Geraghty"s board on Pinterest and to the vintage popup book site at http://www.vintagepopupbooks.com/Raphael_Tuck_Sons_History_s/1857.htm
