SHORT SEQUENCE OF ROUGH DRAWINGS, ILLUSTRATING A SMALL CHARACTER (IN THIS CASE, A MOUSE) INFLATING A TYRE, WITH DEVASTATING RESULTS.

Hand-drawn animation strip book. Graphite with typed title label to the front cover. Six stapled leaves with a drawing to the recto of each. Very good condition with old staple holes and associated minor rust-marking to the margin of the upper left corner, an old punch hole to the lower left corner, and minor wear to the extremities. The drawings remain clean and bright.

An accomplished series of drawings, similar to the style of Disney, from the early days of British animation. Produced by a professional illustrator, they depict a mouse inflating a tyre to the point at which it explodes. A complete story in itself, the characterful drawings wonderfully convey the sense of movement of the finished cartoon.
