Like your professional, I have never heard of anyone playing 18 holes in fewer scores than the years of his age. It is certainly a most remarkable performance.

        Three framed original cartoons from "Gulliver's Travels

      1939. unbound. Outstanding and historically important assemblage of three original production storyboard drawings, all created by Thomas Johnson and used in the Fleischer Studios' feature animated cartoon "Gulliver%u2019s Travels." The three drawings are part of the sequence in which King Little, Gabby, and company pass out at the banquet table soon after the gala celebration in the castle. Gulliver looks on affectionately and then proceeds to reverse the tablecloth into a blanket, tucking in his new-found friends before extinguishing the night torches. The first two drawings are matted and framed in one unit, labeled "72" and "73." Each of these drawings, measuring 7.5 x 9.5 inches, was accomplished in graphite and partially hand-colored in red, blue, and yellow pastel pencil. They are set in a double-opening olive mat framed to 20.5 x 14 inches and housed in a simple brown vintage frame. Drawing 73 is highly detailed and contains images not retained in the animated feature. More specifically, King Little, Gabby, and friends are asleep in their chairs at the banquet table while dishes and food remain. In addition, there is a bandstand adorned with a guitar and sleeping musicians that was also removed from the scene. The third drawing, measuring 6 x 7.5 inches, is matted and set in metal gold frame measuring 10.25 x 11.5 inches. It was accomplished in graphite and completely hand colored in red, blue, and yellow pastel pencils. It depicts a close-up of King Little, Gabby, and friends asleep at the banquet table with their bodies completely covered by the tablecloth as they let out exaggerated snores. Ironically, Johnson includes a finished drawing of a sleeping tramp hiding under the banquet table which he has crossed out, probably in anticipation of the rejection he would have received from Dave Fleischer. Note: "Gulliver's Travels" was the second cel-animated feature film ever released and the first produced by an American studio other than Walt Disney Productions. It was directed and produced by Dave and Max Fleischer and premiered on December 22, 1939. For cartoon aficionados who would like to match up the approximate film sequences to the above drawings, it is suggested that you view cartoon frames: 53 min. 21 sec. / 53 min. 43 sec. / 53 min. 59 sec. All items are in very good(+) condition. Newspaper cartoonist and animator best remembered for his work with Max and Dave Fleischer at Fleischer Studios in the 1930s. He worked on Betty Boop and later on Popeye shorts before contributing extensively to the feature cartoons "Gulliver%u2019s Travels" (1939) and "Mr. Bug Goes to Town" (1940).

      16 Oct. 1939 - A 2-page letter of @250 words on both sides of one sheet of paper in Flagg's hand addressed to "My poor dear Sucker" [Willis Birchman: author, illustrator, and friend of Flagg's]. With an ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR at the top of the letter of a standing man with a large heart for a head nonchalantly tossing aside his human head. Flagg explains that the cartoon is his reaction to news from Birchman regarding an apparent boarder and the disruption in his life. Flagg refers to a movie he made that he wishes to show Birchman about a visitor who came for a weekend and stayed seven years. SIGNED "Monty," as he often did when writing to Birchman. Flagg, the epitome of the bohemian artist (certainly this letter gives a good taste of that), was a master of portrait studies and incisive caricatures. He created many posters for the government and is best known for his famous "I Want You" Uncle Sam recruiting poster, an American icon. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1980. Normal creases from folding. Fine [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats

      London: Faber & Faber, 1939. First Edition. First Impression ("First published in September Mcmxxxix" on the copyright page). 8vo: [6], 7-45, [1]pp. Beautifully bound in three-quarter burgundy morocco and matching cloth by Atkinsons of Salisbury (with their binder's ticket to the rear pastedown); banded spine lettered and decorated in gilt, with the title in gilt on a black leather label; fore-edge left untrimmed. One of 3,005 copies published. A superb presentation. Gallup A34a. The poet's most unlikely success, a collection of poems about felines that became a classic almost from the moment it appeared in October 1939. According to the Literary Encyclopedia, "If Eliot’s social and cultural criticism has few readers today, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats has reached larger audiences than anything else he ever wrote, as the textual basis for the musical Cats. It testifies not only to Eliot's many-levelled sense of humour, which ranged from the subtly impish to the coarsely funny, but also to his metrical and stylistic skills."

The book consists of five different flip books bound inside the stiff card wrappers. The flip books can be viewed in two different directions so we have a total of ten different animated scenes with what is said to be 1000 pictures! Inside the front wrapper is a synopsis of each of the ten different animated scenes. Internally, the book is complete and in fully functioning condition. The story is quite hillarious and to be able to watch it in motion really adds to the overall enjoyment that this book gives. The condition of the book is VERY GOOD.
