    Preliminary Drawings of Dr. Carey, With Notations

    Garth Williams. Illustration on p. 81, and two character sketches of Dr. Carey from Stuart Little.

    Garth Williams. Original preliminary drawing for an illustration on page 81, and two character sketches of Dr. Carey from
    Stuart Little, 1945. One large sheet measuring 15.875 x 12 inches, initialed by Williams at lower right; with notation reading "Looking for invisible car -- (sketch)" in an unknown hand (possibly that of editor Ursula Nordstrom). Also one sheet measuring 8 x 12 inches, initialed by Williams at lower right; with notation reading "N.B. These are not spots in the book, just scribbles to get character. How's this for Dr. Carey?" Also on this sheet is the note "Please return" followed by what appears to be "U.N.," the initials of Ursula Nordstrom. With pink slip of paper containing the note "Not right type. Will send you a picture of Dr. Carey." Both drawings with shallow folds and paper clip indentations (one leaving a rust stain). Both very good or better. From the Estate of Garth Williams.
