Two hand-drawn animation strip books. Blue pencil. The first composed of seven stapled leaves, the second of three, with a drawing to the recto of each. Very good condition with old staple holes to the left-hand margins, an old punch hole to the lower left corners, and minor wear to the extremities. The drawings remain clean and bright.
A highly accomplished series of drawings, similar to the style of Disney, from the early days of British animation. Produced by a professional illustrator, the first booklet illustrates the attempts of a musical tomcat to woo 'his Lady-Love', the second is composed of designs for a super-hero fly and a 1920s gangster-style spider villain. The wonderful tomcat drawings are very well executed and full of character, although the story appears to be missing a final page.
