    [Featured Lot]. [Original Art]. Meticulously Hand-Drawn and Lettered Illustrated Folk Art Humor Magazine, Entitled F. A. T. Nos. 1-6. February-March, 1884. A total of six weekly issues, at twelve pages each, bound in quarter leather over pebbled cloth boards. Twelvemo. Handwritten in ink throughout, with numerous hand-colored drawings and sketches. Endearing and at times provocative hand-made humor periodical evidently done for the author's personal enjoyment and painstakingly executed. Featuring stories, rhymes, riddles, etc., with a mixture of cartoonish, bawdy drawings and surprisingly lush and detailed natural history illustrations. The artist was originally identified as Charles F. Leland through a small slip of paper found in the book (no longer present). Some rubbing, soiling and edgewear to extremities. Some minor toning, creasing and chipping to pages. With bookplate of Harold Cummins. Very good. From the collection of Zita Books.
