    Description

    [Garth Williams, illustrator]. Original Pencil Drawing for the Front Cover of Margaret Wise Brown's I Like Everything [eventually published as The Friendly Book]. [N.p., n.d., ca. 1959]. (Golden Books, 1959). On off-white tissue-paper (it is possible that the paper was once white). Approximately 12 x 9.25 inches. Signed by Williams in the lower right corner in pencil. Some edgewear to the drawing, not affecting image. A very good example of this beautiful drawing. Although this drawing appears finished, it is unlikely that it was the final artwork used for the publication of the book. [and:] [Garth Williams, illustrator]. Margaret Wise Brown. The Friendly Book. New York: Golden Books, [1954, though later]. Later reprint. Some rubbing. Very good.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
