About this Item

This "Chicago Times" sports cartoonist hit the big time with his 1932 creation "Grin and Bear It," which became nationally syndicated and kept him at the drawing board until 1974. Signed print, 5¼" X 6½", n.p., n.d. Near fine. Interesting glossy "slick" (in printer's parlance) of a daily "Grin and Bear It" installment: Three road workers with a pickup truck full of "Historical Site" plaques -- one holds a plaque and points enquiringly at a spot in the dirt while another barks out, "No need to be too accurate about where you put them, men. there's always arguments about those things anyway!." The artist boldly inscribed is above their image: "TO / WARREN / REEDER / my best / Lichty." (Reeder was a well-known Indiana realtor, autograph collector and author of the 1972 book "No Performances Today: An Account of the Events Leading Up to, and Following the Train Wreck of the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus Train"). Unusual form, a "slick" being an in-house production proof copy, this one bearing two registration marks at the left margin. Bookseller Inventory # 20160
