This two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist (1921-2003) created the immortal Willie and Joe during World War Two; his 1963 "Grieving Lincoln" cartoon in the "Chicago Sun-Times" summed up the nation's reaction to JFK's assassination. Heavy stock 11" X 14", n.p., n.y. Fine. Housed in its original, near fine white presentation envelope (captioned "A Keepsake by Bill Mauldin from the Abraham Lincoln Association, 12 February 1989"). This keepsake was the brain child of Ralph G. Newman (912-2000), founder of Chicago's famed Abraham Lincoln Book Shop -- and, of all people, Bill Mauldin's literary agent in later years, presumably because of the Lincoln cartoon that made him also a known quantity in the Lincoln world. "Grieving Lincoln" was rarely reproduced during Mauldin's lifetime, for he grew increasingly protective of reprint rights to his work over the years. Most of the very few reprints cannot be dated, for they all include Mauldin's original 1963 Chicago Sun-Times tagline -- but this unusual 1989 Mauldin-Newman joint production was produced in 1989 as per the presentation envelope caption. Only because of this close personal connection to Newman did he allow this moving drawing to be reproduced in this fashion. Bookseller Inventory #
