Sale: 1898 Montgomery Ward General Catalog Announcement W W Denslow Connection


In stock


Here is an unusual item: the Montgomery Ward & Co. Announcement of General Catalogue for Spring & Summer 1898. Wizard of Oz artist W W Denslow is known to have illustrated clip art throughout the 1898 catalog, but it’s unknown how many of the sketches in this small booklet he provided, since they are unsigned. Denslow’s account book does list many small drawings for Montgomery Ward during this period. The booklet is just 3 5/8 by 5 7/8 and is about 20 pages.

Stapled binding in good condition with some writing on back and inside rear cover.
