Denslow, W.W.
Original art: "The Corn Dodger"
n.p., n.p, 1904. Signed original pen-and-ink drawing for what would become a chapter heading in Paul West's 1904 publication THE PEARL AND THE PUMPKIN. "The Corn Dodger" would become the heading for Chapter 6 of West's book, published by Dillingham. The Corn Dodger is an anthropomorphized ear of corn, wearing a crown and holding a strand of corn silk in his hand. It is much larger than it appears in the book and is a wonderful, fanciful image. Art 12'' x 9.25'' in frame 16.5'' x 14''. Single sheet of art paper signed by Denslow including his characteristic sea-horse. Pencilled production notes in margins. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
