McLouglin Brothers' 1877 combination games "Cats and Mice, Gantlope, and Lost Diamond" came packaged in a slipcase, similar to other McLoughlin games of the period. However, this particular slipcase is actually shaped, on one end, to resemble the spines of two books. So not only did the game fit on the owner's bookcase, it blended in with the shelved books.
