Description

Here is a very unusual Denslow item entitled Johnnie Johnston’s Air Ship, an advertising booklet for the Johnston Harvester Company. This is the first printing, published in 1909 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 1909 by the Johnston Harvester Co, 1st printing with just 16 pages including cover (later it was expanded). Original J E Slotf & Co (Michigan) store or dealer stamp on the back.

Book is in very good condition overall. Complete with text still attached to original staples, just a little light edge stainiing and some age toning. A nice copy of this scarce little book, hard to find in first printing.
