Here’s another early rip-off of the work of Wizard of Oz artist WW Denslow. The amorphous white pigs in this 1909 Saalfield “5 Little Pigs” book are the same species as those in Denslow’s 1905 “Five Little Pigs” book. The Saalfield artist has taken the Denslow pigs and made small changes in their stance and outfits from Denslow’s. The last 3 photos show the original Denslow work.
The Saalfield book is also smaller, just 4″x7″, and is made of muslin. In very good condition with light fraying at edges.
