Peter Newell, Topsys & Turvys,
New York, The Century Co., 1893.

I do not have the original edition of this book, so here is a bookseller's description of the item:

Oblong 12mo., 31pp. (each page is tipped to a woven cloth tab, including the title page and the 4 contents pages), yellow and greenish blue marbled endpapers, original dark olive cloth with pastedown illustrations. The front cover pastedown is illustrated in muted pastel colors on a light olive colored background with the title lettered in orange. It has the caption: These little maids (4 figures) have been to town to purchase postage stamps (Turned upside down you see 4 tramps looking over a fence) And are much alarmed to note their actions watched by tramps. The rear cover pastedown, also a muted olive color has an illustration of a "Topsy Turvy" smoking a pipe. Looked at upside down it is a clown balancing a pipe on its head.

I have used the back cover pastedown in the page header.

Front pastedown from a modern edition.
