1953 Geraldine Clyne MISTRESS MARY POP-UP 3-D Rhyme Art - eBay (item 310073294167 end time Aug-11-08 18:50:47 PDT)
This vintage pop-up is by Geraldine Clyne, illustrating the children's rhyme Mistress Mary. It's marked, "Mistress Mary, Geraldine Clyne, ©J.S. Pub. Co., New York, U.S.A. Patent Pending." I see no date on it, but it was published in 1953 according to another seller online.

Also from New York was Geraldine Clyne who produced the Jolly Jump-up series from the late 1930s to the 1950s. She used fan-folded pop-ups, which are simple accordion, cut-and-folded illustrations. Her subjects ranged from the poetry of Robert Louis Stevenson, to life-styles in the new suburbia, to the imagined frontier of space travel.
