Well, according to our research, Henri Roorda van Eysinga (1870-1925, who often wrote under the pseudonym Balthazar) was a Swiss educator, humorist, anarchist, and pacifist who wrote everything from math textbooks to plays to essays. Hardly known in the US, he is feted in an exhibition at the Musee Historique de Lausanne. Beinecke Library has added a small group of books and a typescript of a play "The League against Stupidity"

A curious production from the early 1920s intended to mimic motion in a book for young readers. Each "movie" is viewed by turning back successive panels on a scored page to reveal new scenes. While a bit awkward to manipulate, the idea works well enough to entertain and delight. Wonder movies by Victor M Earle; Illustrated by Benjamin Seielstad (Garden City, N.Y. : Doubleday, Page, 1923).
