    Description

    Smoky (Fox, 1933). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Smoky the Cowhorse was Canadian writer Will James' best known book, winning the Newbery Medal for children's literature in 1927 (even though James said that it wasn't a children's book). Born Joseph Dufault in Quebec, he learned to be a cowboy at 18 on the prairies of Saskatchewan. Accused of theft, he headed to the U.S., taking the new name William Roderick James. After being arrested in Nevada and serving a 15-month sentence for cattle rustling, he supported himself as an artist, stunt man and horse wrangler. During his life, he wrote and illustrated 23 books, five of which were filmed. James himself was the narrator of this first of three versions of Smoky. This beautiful stone litho one sheet has light touchup on the folds. The paper has been trimmed up to the edge of the poster. This poster comes with a wonderful custom made black frame which the buyer may have shipped to them. Very Fine+ on Paper.
