The annotated Charlotte's web by Peter F Neumeyer( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 633 libraries worldwide
""Probably the most exciting article ever published [in The Horn Book]," announced that magazine's publicity release when, in 1982, Peter Neumeyer wrote his two-part series on the evolution of E.B. White's Charlotte's Web from manuscript to finished book." "Charlotte's Web may be America's best-loved children's book today, seamless in plot, poignant in its delineation of characters who will live in American children's literature forever, and written with a seeming ease and fluency that make the reading as engrossing as it is effortless." "In fact, E.B. White labored tirelessly over eight manuscript drafts, researched thoroughly the habits of spiders, and meditated on the habits of pigs. En route, he corresponded with editors, filmmakers, and friends, as well as fulfilling his role as a distinguished writer for The New Yorker." "The Annotated Charlotte's Web picks up these threads, opens the door to the creator's workshop, and allows the reader to glance over the shoulder of one of the most exacting and fastidious American writers, watching as he forms his masterpiece." "The Annotated Charlotte's Web sheds light on the book's origins, its allusions, its deliberate construction, as well as on the life of its sometimes elusive author. It sets the novel in the context of other books of its type." "Included are information from White's eight manuscript drafts, cross-references to other writings by E.B. White, letters between White and his editors, documents from the critical reception of Charlotte's Web, and general literary-cultural commentary tying the book to its traditions." "For over forty years, this great American novel has thrived without annotation. Now, however, these selected insights can bring us closer to the book's author, enrich our reading of the book, and shed a measure of light on the artistic process itself."--Jacket

Floating worlds : the letters of Edward Gorey & Peter F. Neumeyer by Edward Gorey( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
"Edward Gorey and Peter Neumeyer met in the summer of 1968. Gorey had been contracted by Addison-Wesley to illustrate Donald and the ..., a children?s story written by Neumeyer. On their first encounter, Neumeyer managed to dislocate Gorey?s shoulder when he grabbed his arm to keep him from falling into the ocean. In a hospital waiting room, they pored over Gorey?s drawings for the first time together, and Gorey infused the situation with much hilarity. This was the beginning of an invigorating friendship, fueled by a wealth of letters and postcards that sped between the two men through the fall of 1969. Those letters, published here for the first time, are remarkable for their quantity and their content. While the creative collaborations of Gorey and Neumeyer centered on children?s books, they held wide-ranging interests; both were erudite, voracious readers, and they sent each other many volumes. Through their discussions of these books, one marvels at the beauty of thoughtful (and merry) discourse driven by intellectual curiosity"--The publisher
