Abstract:

Drawings by Palmer Cox to illustrate his stories about brownies, imaginary small sprites that delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds, 1883-1904. Many of the drawings originally appeared in St. Nicholas Magazine and Ladies Home Journal from 1883-1895 and in sixteen books, 1887-1925. There are four discrete groups of drawings and three discrete single drawings in this collection.

Eight drawings created by Cox to illustrate stories originally published in St. Nicholas Magazine, 1884-1887, and subsequently collected and published in "Brownies: Their Book," by the Century Company, New York, 1887. The drawings illustrate stories including "The Brownies at the Gymnasium" (two drawings), "The Brownies Tobogganing," "The Brownies' Balloon" (three drawings), "The Brownies and the Bees," and "The Brownies' Circus." A drawing for "The Brownies at the Gymnasium" and a drawing for "The Brownies' Circus" each depict two scenes. The drawings are mounted on board and the versos include ink stamps for the art department of the Century Company. The rectos of the drawings have penciled notations that refer to their arrangement in the volume. The drawings are arranged according to their sequential appearance in the book. Accompanied by a slipcase that formerly housed the drawings.

Twenty-six drawings created by Cox to illustrate the margins of "Brownies: Their Book," published by the Century Company, 1887. The images depict one or more brownies. The various size drawings are on paper mounted to heavy cardboard that is then mounted on uniform size cardstock. The drawings have penciled notations that refer to their arrangement in the volume. These drawings are arranged according to their sequential appearance in the book. Accompanied by a slipcase that formerly housed the drawings.

Four drawings mounted on boards for a story, "The Brownies and the Whale" published in St. Nicholas Magazine, February 1888. Three drawings that accompanied the published story show brownies standing on the shore with a whale in shallow water, brownies riding atop the whale, and brownies on logs from a logjam the whale destroyed. An additional image not used in the published story, showing brownies riding atop the whale, appeared in "Another Brownie Book" published by the Century Company, New York, 1890. The verso of each of the boards includes an ink stamp for the art department of the Century Company.

One drawing mounted on a board for a story, "The Brownies in the Academy" published in St. Nicholas Magazine, April 1888. The drawing titled on the verso, "The Band Alarmed," shows a group of brownies below a screen whereupon a brownie projects a lanternslide image of a bee, a beetle, and a grasshopper. The drawing also appears in "Another Brownie Book" published by the Century Company, New York, 1890. The verso of each of the boards includes a stamp for the art department of the Century Company, as well as the signature and ownership stamps of Murray A. Harris, an art collector in North Hollywood and Simi Valley, California.

Fifty drawings created by Cox to illustrate the margins of "The Brownies through the Union" published by the Century Company, 1895. The various size drawings are on paper mounted to heavy cardboard that is then mounted on uniform size cardstock. Several drawings include proverbs handwritten by Cox. One drawing that shows brownies in a Michigan grain field is signed by Cox. The drawings have penciled notations that refer to their arrangement in the volume. These drawings are arranged according to their sequential appearance in the book. Accompanied by two slipcases that formerly housed the drawings.

One drawing mounted on board that shows a group of Brownies on a quay near a large Georgian building, ca. 1898. The image may possibly represent the Dublin Custom House, Ireland. The verso on the board includes a stamp for the art department of the Century Company. The drawing was possibly made for "The Brownies Abroad" published by the Century Company, New York, 1899.

One drawing mounted on a board for the chapter, "The Brownies on Siquijor," in "The Brownies in the Philippines" published by the Century Company, New York, 1904. The image shows a group of brownies standing adjacent to a group of alligator skins that they use to disguise themselves to explore the island. The versos of the boards include a stamp for the art department of the Century Company, as well as an ownership stamp of Cously Collections, Englewood, New Jersey. The drawing is accompanied by a mat that includes a manuscript caption, "Original Drawing by Palmer Cox, 1903," and sketch representations of other comic strip characters including Buster Brown and Mickey Dugan (better known as The Yellow Kid) from the "Hogan's Alley" comic strip originally drawn by Richard Felton Outcault;; Happy Holligan drawn by Frederick Burr Opper; Mamma Katzenjammer from "The Katzenjammer Kids" originally drawn by Rudolph Dirks; and Foxy Grandpa, originally drawn by C. E. Schultze.
