    Forty-eight sheets of stiff watercolor paper in various dimensions, many protected in glassine envelopes. There are two slightly different versions of illustrations #25 and #38. Colors bright and vibrant. All in fine condition.

    The publisher's blurb from the full-color edition of Charlotte's Web: "Rosemary Wells, author and illustrator of almost eighty books, considers Garth Williams one of the true geniuses of twentieth-century book illustration and feels that had he had today's technology available, he would have chosen to do the illustration for Charlotte's Web in full color. Applying a very simple palette befitting the story's setting, Ms. Wells hopes her results would have pleased Garth Williams." From the Estate of Garth Williams.
