Description

Here is another rare item by Wizard of Oz illustrator W W Denslow. Around 1910, Denslow illustrated a number of colorful advertising booklets for different companies. One of the most fun was this one: “Through Foreign Lands with Sunny Jim” for Force Malted Wheat Flakes Breakfast food. Charming illustrations of Sunny Jim visiting people of all types around the world. Nobody draws anthropomorphic bears like Denslow! (Does include some racial stereotypes). Copyright 1910 by the H-O Company.

The piece measures 5″ by 8″ and has 36 pages in full color. In very good condition overall; the cover’s very attractive, but has some edge wear and there is 2″ splitting along base of spine fold. The interior pages are all clean and very good. A scarce and collectible Denslow item. Can’t find any others available currently online.
