        Archive of Crow and Weasel

      1981-1983. Lopez's Crow and Weasel, a fable in the style of North American Indian tales, with beautiful water color illustrations by Tom Pohrt, was published by North Point Press in 1990. This archive predates publication by 7-9 years, and represents a path not taken, documenting the guidance of Lopez, the painstaking work by Pohrt, and the over-arching influence of designer Joel Schick, who amassed this collection during the collaboration, but who did not ultimately serve as the book's designer. According to Lopez, worked stopped on this title in 1983 and began again in 1989, by which time David Bullen had replaced Schick as the designer. Much of the groundwork for the finished product remains visible however, in over 60 pages of text and images, including three signed letters from Lopez to Schick; three copies of letters from Lopez to Pohrt; 6-1/2 (one page missing) letters from Pohrt to Schick; nine retained copies of letters from Schick to Pohrt, Lopez, or both; one retained letter from Schick to Lopez's agent, Peter Schultz; and approximately 15 pages of sketches by Pohrt. Included are meticulously detailed discussions on how to involve the reader; how to anthropomorphize the characters; the characters' motivations at the points of illustration; the overall aesthetic of the book; the smoothing over of the personalities collaborating; etc., all carried out via the primitive means of type, pen, and postal service. As just one example, of Schick writing to Pohrt: "You give up a lot in order to avoid drawing that fore-shortened muzzle and the farther eye. An aspect of composition that we should probably not discuss in front of Barry. Better that our motives always be pure, or at least seem to be, even if misguided...Barry's note about the horse concerned about himself may be handled by facing him away from the action, and toward the edge of the book...Back Cover: No Dead Things!..." Again, when the book was published, in 1990, David Bullen was named as designer. However, included here is a copy of the first edition, (second state, without the gold stamping on the front cover that was removed by request of the second designer, Bullen), inscribed by Lopez to Schick, "with gratitude and affection, and a sense of delight in our long friendship." It's worth noting that Schick was Lopez's designer on his 1979 John Burroughs Medal winning book, Of Wolves and Men. All items fine. First Edition. No Binding. Fine.

        THE HONEY BEE AND THE ROBBER (Signed and inscribed with a crayon drawing)

      PHILOMEL BOOKS 1981 - THE HONEY BEE AND THE ROBBER FROM THE BIRGIT OELSCHLAGER COLLECTION (CARLE'S FIRST COUSIN) SIGNED AND DEDICATED WITH A DRAWING FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING First Edition, First Printing: from the collection of Birgit Oelshlager Smith (Eric Carle¿s first cousin). A Scarce delicate title with pull tabs. Wonderfully dedicated to Birgit from BOTH Eric Carle and his wife, Bobbie who co-founded the Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. A stunning dedication with a scarce crayon drawing of a very large brown bear by Eric Carle. Dedication of ¿Grrr¿ Birgit & Family! merry Christmas & a happy New Year from your cousin Eric & Bobbie & Cirsten & Rolf¿ The book is in overall excellent condition with great boards with no edgewear, and no rips. The boards have a few corner bumps. The binding is tight and square. The internal pages are clean and the flaps although all working are as used. A phenomenal piece for the collector of Eric Carle. A First Edition, First Printing of THE HONEY BEE AND THE ROBBER, with a stunning scarce very personal dedication with a large crayon drawing and signed by Eric Carle and family. Please see the many images. The book was issued without a dust jacket. ABOUT ERIC CARLE ART: Unlike many artists and illustrators, Eric Carle did not dedicate or sell his art, with the exception of his few dedicated pieces going to a close personal friend, Bill Halloran (who was a worldwide educational consultant on children¿s literature). Other than these pieces, the balance of his personal collection were pledged to The Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. As such, his original artwork in any form is extremely scarce and only one gallery currently even sells any works of Carle¿s. Simple line drawings, such as the one shown in the listing typically sell for $3800 and up unframed, with his more detailed art selling for $25,000 and up. See the Michelson Galleries for additional information on Eric Carle and his art. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
