Item Description
17.5x24.25" artboard has been taped to back of larger mat w/plastic cover. Art features seven panels, featuring "Tumble Brothers" strip that appeared in the May 12, 1909 issue of "Puck." Art was by Roy Leighton Budd (1872-1962), who provided art for "The New York Herald, Judge, The Century, Harper's Magazine, Scribner's Magazine" as well as "St. Nicholas." He became a regular contributor to the "Puck" humor magazine in 1901. Budd's "Tumble Brothers" became a syndicated newspaper comic strip in 1906 and also saw publication in "Puck," as seen w/the pen and ink original art offered here. Hand-lettered "Unwritten Hudson History" title at top and Sunday page-like comic shows the Tumble Brothers encountering band of Native Americans in the Hudson River Valley. The Tumble Brothers are attacked, causing them to escape by tumbling down hill to their boat, much to the Natives' amazement. Budd has signed last panel. First panel has 2.25" line impression affecting both artboard and plastic cover. Some scattered dust soiling but o/w clean and VF. Back has three stamps from printers and some penciling. As prolific an artist as he was, Budd's art rarely comes up for sale at auction.
