A.B. FROST’S HIGH-SPIRITED CARLO, 1913

FROST, Arthur Burdett. Carlo. WITH: Autograph letter signed. Garden City, 1913.

First edition of this rollicking tale in pictures, chronicling the exaggerated devastation that ensues when a gang of country ruffians tie tin-cans to the tail of a dog named “Carlo”—18 stories presented in the fledgling form of the comic strip. The accompanying autograph letter reads: “Dear Mr. McGee, I have put my autograph in your books. I am sorry I can’t add a little sketch here and there but my sight is so poor that I have had to give up making little drawings. You have a copy of the first edition of Stuff and Nonsense. It is a rarity. And you have The Bull Calf and Carlo, both out of print and impossible to get. A friend wants both books and has offered five dollars a copy to various second hand book dealers with no result. Shall I send the books to your home address? I will send them by parcel post— insured. Yours sincerely, Arthur Burdett Frost. May 4th, 1919.” $900.
