Original drawing published in "The Trumpet of the Swan"
by White, E.B.
New York, 1970. 11 inches x 8-1/2 inches, pencil on paper, with small touch-ups in white ink, hinged with masking tape to a piece of board. Published on page 5 of the book, where Sam, the boy, is drawing a pencil sketch in his diary. White's handwritten note at the bottom: "To go with Sam Beaver's diary entry. Chapt. I." The drawing is also annotated by Ed Frascino, the book's illustrator, and is accompanied by a letter presenting it from Frascino. This illustration to one of White's beloved children's books is to our knowledge one of only two art works published during his life. White explained in a letter to Dorothy Hayes, "I decided to do the sketch myself, as my ability with a pencil is just about right for an 11-yr-old boy," (Letters, p. 596-597). (Inventory #: 29127)
