    Description

    Smoky (Fox, 1933). Three Sheet (41.5" X 80").
    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 three sheet has professional restoration to address fold wear with small chips, mild tears, and replaced right side of the upper border. There were also sections of paper loss under Irene Bentley's credit that have also been replaced. This is a first time offer from Heritage. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
