    [Garth Williams]. Rosemary Wells. Large Illustration by Garth Williams for Benjamin's Treasure, appearing on page twenty-five, adapted from The Adventures of Benjamin Pink. With Original Application of Watercolor by Rosemary Wells. This illustration is on stiff watercolor paper and is signed by Rosemary Wells. Measures approximately 17.25 x 11.5 inches. Near fine. From the Estate of Garth Williams.

    Garth Williams' wonderful illustrations for The Adventures of Benjamin Pink (1951) were excerpted and colorized by popular children's book author and illustrator Rosemary Wells for Benjamin's Treasure in 2001. This delightful reimagining of Williams' original black and white drawings - authorized by the estate of Garth Williams - is the first appearance of these illustrations in color.

    This wonderful collection of original art, each signed by Rosemary Wells and with her hand-applied watercolor, is as much a testament to her talent and vision as it is to that of the legendary Garth Williams.
