    Two Original Artworks from The Adventures of Reddy Fox, 1913
    Black ink and gray wash on board
    14 x 9.75 in. (larger)

    This delightful ink and wash on board scene features Peter Rabbit's historic debut in children's book author Thornton Burgess' famed series, and it appeared in Chapter X, "Poor Reddy Fox," of The Adventures of Reddy Fox. The penciled-in caption reads, "Peter Rabbit watching from the clump of bushes knew that Reddy was not pretending." Also included in this lot is a 4.5 x 6 in. color guide (with the image flipped), that was used for a later printing in 1941.
