Item Description
6.5x22-7/8" thin artboard titled "Test Number One" in pencil at left margin has India ink original art for June 6, 1935 daily strip. Art features three panels w/Uncle Walt talking to their maid Rachel, who is tending to a baby as Corky looks one. Walt discusses Rachel's new boyfriend, whom she reveals has buried three wives and is of no use to her if he won't give her money. Last panel has been signed in ink "King" by creator Frank King. All three panels have horizontal inked line running along bottom, likely an edit for publication size. Last panel bears two Chicago Tribune copyright strips. Last panel also has strip of glue staining in Rachel's dialogue, as it was changed, though strip is now missing. Back has Tribune Engraving Room instamp and "Print On Jem Metal" stamped notation. Glue staining at left/right. Pin holes along margins, one at top of first panel, not affecting art. Scattered age spotting and dust soiling. Fine overall w/ VF art.
