Out of stock


Here is a very unusual Denslow item entitled Johnnie Johnston’s Air Ship, an advertising booklet for the Johnston Harvester Company. With six full color full page illustrations by Denslow as well as the wraparound cover illustration (including a classic Denslow moon on the back!) All marked “DEN” and with his seahorse device (one twice). There are also several black and white illustrations by Denslow. This is a beautiful item, very colorful, very Denslow! 5 1/4″ by 7 1/4″ softcover. Copyright 1910 by the Johnston Harvester Co, 2nd printing with 24 pages. From the Fred Meyer collection.

Book is in good plus condition overall. Complete with text still attached to original staples, and with spine intact, but with name of “Miss Ada Krantz” hand written on front and rear cover. Inside, something has transferred “Johnston” in red inside the front cover. The other pages are very good with no marks or tears. A decent copy of this scarce little book.
