Denslow, W.W.
Original art: "Jack Sprat" from MOTHER GOOSE
n.p., n.p, 1910. Large and wonderful finished pen-and-ink drawing that would later be published in the book YE OLD TIME NURSERY RHYMES BY MOTHER GOOSE. After Denslow's death, a cache of his art was discovered in 1939. Buffalo publishers Baldwin & Strachan used them to issue a pamphlet of Mother Goose rhymes that same year. The art is described in Greene and Hearn's biography of Denslow, saying in part that "it is likely that Denslow drew the pictures for one of his advertising pamphlets. The pictures first appeared in Youth Magazine, a hand-out to patrons of Dodd's Dairy in Buffalo. In issue eleven, this pamphlet was announced as available from Dodd's milkmen for ten cents." A thrilling survival. 14.5'' x 19.5''. Single Strathmore drawing board with drawing filling nearly the entire space, signed by Denslow with his characteristic seahorse design. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
