Item Description: The Saalfield Publishing Co. (c.1917, 1907), Akron/New York/Chicago, 1917. Stiff wrappers. Book Condition: Very Good+. Illustrated by George McManus, Albert George Carmichael (illustrator). [moderate edgewear to covers, internally Fine except for the expected and inevitable age-toning to the pages]. (cartoon strips and panels) A remarkably well-preserved example of this rare vintage coloring book (OCLC reports only four library holdings), containing mostly undated reprints of George McManus's newspaper comic strip, "The Newlyweds," generally considered the first American "family" strip. Created by the then 20-year-old McManus for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World in 1904, the strip ran for twelve years, at various times as both a daily and Sunday feature; when McManus left the World for the New York American (a Hearst paper), he began a new strip called "Their Only Child" ("a perfect clone," in the words of one historian), while "The Newlyweds" continued in the World, drawn by Albert George Carmichael. Dating the strips in the book would be a major research task, not helped by the mishmash of dates provided: the 1917 date is on the front cover; the title page reads: "Copyrighted 1907 by the Press Publishing Co."; and several of the individual color strips bear a 1916 copyright date, also credited to the "Press Publishing Co. (N.Y. World)." All appear to all be Sunday strips, although some are in B&W (for "coloring-in" purposes, I suppose) and others in color, and despite McManus's sole by-line on the title page, Carmichael's work is also well-represented. (On quite a few, either McManus's or Carmichael's signature is visible; generally speaking, the color versions appear to be by Carmichael and the B&W ones by McManus.) To my eyes, the 1917 publication date signals the publishers' attempt to wring a few more drops of revenue out of a feature that had ended the previous year; the seemingly anomalous 1907 copyright date would seem related to the "birth date" of baby Snookums (yes, that was his name), who was introduced into the strip in that year. [Either that or it's just a "holdover" from an earlier book incarnation, "The Newlyweds and Their Baby," published the same year by the New York World, but not to be confused with the present volume.] But relax: it's not so much a collection (let alone a chronicle) as it is a sampler of "The Newlyweds," and as such is utterly charming. McManus's most successful and best-remembered strip, "Bringing Up Father" (aka "Jiggs & Maggie"), debuted in 1913 and had an amazing 87-year run -- outliving its creator by 46 years! NOISBN.

Item Description: McManus, George. THE NEWLYWEDS AND THEIR BABY'SCOMIC PICTURES FOR PAINTING AND CRAYONING. Akron,Ohio & New York: Saalfield Publishing Co., 1917.Oblong quarto. First edition. Original colorpictorial wrappers. Neatly rebacked, mild rubbing,some coloring in a few places, but a very goodcopy, and a miracle of survival. OCLC locates onlya single copy of this work. McManus (1884-1954)began his career with the `New York World' in1905, where `Newlyweds and Their Baby' firstappeared, and he is best remembered for his comicstrip, BRINGING UP FATHER, the first Americancomic strip to achieve international fame. Thatstrip was issued in book form in a series startingin 1917, and went through nearly two dozen numbersby the early 1930s --all of which are seenregularly in the market. His other successfulstrips were LET GEORGE DO IT, PANHANDLE PETE, and,of course the present work, which is comprised ofcomic strips (6 and 8 panel formats) firstpublished in newspapers between 1907 and 1916.Some of the strips are printed in color (Sundaystrips), while others (dailies were typically inblack and white) are intended for coloring, but nocrayola has ever besmirched this volume. The firstnewspaper comic strips appeared in the 1890s, andthe first modern "comic book" was a selection ofMutt & Jeff strips published by the Chicago`American' in 1911 (THE ADVENTURES OF OBIDIAHOLDBUCK, published in the 1840s is sometimesdescribed as the first American "comic book" butit was a translation from a French work publishedpreviously, and was not a comic book in the modernsense). The first cloth-bound book collection ofcomic strips was Fontaine Fox's FUNNY FOLK (NewYork: Doran, 1917; OCLC locates 9 copies, by wayof comparison). The first "comic book" publishedindependently of any newspaper with originalpreviously unpublished material was THE FUNNIES, a13 part tabloid format series published in 1929.And the first truly "modern" comic book sold atnewsstands, FAMOUS FUNNIES, appeared in 1934. Wehave not been able to determine whether thepresent volume contains previously unpublishedmaterial (some strips have earlier copyrights from`The World' while others do not), nor can weestablish a link between Saalfield Pub. Co. andany newspaper, so the precise status of this comic. Bookseller Inventory # 12767

Item Description: Akron, Ohio: Saalfield Publishing Company, n.d. [1932], 1932. Jigsaw Puzzle. George McManus, born in 1884, started working as a cartoonist in his native St. Louis in 1899. In 1905, he moved to New York to work on the NEW YORK WORLD, where he developed a series of comic strips, Nibsy the Newsboy, Panhandle Pete and his best known of that era, The Newlyweds. He then went to William Randolph Hearst's NEW YORK JOURNAL, where in January, 1913 he launched "Bringing Up Father," his masterpiece. The perennial story of social climbing Maggie, and the hen-pecked Jiggs who just wanted to go to the bar or play poker with his buddies, had in just a few years from its inception, inspired vaudeville shows, sheet music, postcards, games, toys and gave the world Dinty Moore's Beef Stew, which is still produced today. In 1932, Saalfield Publishing Company of Akron, Ohio, did a series of jigsaw puzzles based on popular comic strip characters, such as Popeye and Just Kids. This set of 4 jigsaw puzzles in its original box was the one Saalfield did for Bringing Up Father. All 4 puzzles are complete, the pieces all in excellent condition, with the rare box in fine condition, save for a bent edge. (#126922). Bookseller Inventory # 126922
