BART. PICTURE BOOK. PUGGERY WEE: THE STORY OF THE THREE ELEPHANTS by W.A. Frisbie. Chicago: Rand McNally (1902). 4to, (9 x 11 1/4"), pictorial cloth, some marks on rear over, owner name on title page margin, some cover rubbing, really VG. This is a fantastic picture book featuring an elephant family, a host of humanized animals, odd creatures and anthropomorphized objects (pickles, bean bags, cake box). The text is in verse accompanied by fantastic illustrations by BART (Fred R. Bartholomew) in bright colors in a style reminiscent of Denslow's (including unbelievable pictorial endpapers). One of the wonderful American picture books produced at the turn of the last century. Very scarce.
