    Preliminary Drawings for an Illustration from Stuart Little

    Garth Williams. Preliminary drawings for illustration on p. 5, Stuart Little.

    Garth Williams. Original preliminary drawings and sketches for the illustration on page 5 of
    Stuart Little, 1945: Stuart is lowered down the drain. Three drawings in ink (one with white gouache correction), two in pencil. Five large sheets measuring 15.875 x 12 inches. Two of the ink drawings are signed in full by Williams, the other three are initialed. One sheet has had approximately one-quarter of the sheet cut away, presumably by the artist. One sheet with some minor spotting. A few shallow folds and creases. All very good or better.

    More early drawings done before Williams had decided what the characters would look like. From the Estate of Garth Williams.
