The Trouble with Ernestine
[Circa 1950s]. First. Folio. 28pp., folded unbound sheets. Unsigned original artwork, detailed pen and watercolor, for an original, probably unpublished children's book. The cover illustration (measuring 7" x 12") is directly on the cover sheet, followed by nineteen illustrations (mostly half-page but some full page) cut and pasted into place throughout the book, no text. The pictures tell a curious story -- Ernestine the lioness procures from a monkey a bottle of tranquilizers for her husband, but it turns out to be the wrong prescription and he suffers manic mood swings until he can be properly medicated. The book ends with Ernestine and her relaxed mate sitting in front of their 1950s era television with their four cubs. Unique. .
