Original drawings for Over the Meadow.

(N.p. c. 1940). Oblong small quarto. (9)ff., illustrated on rectos only. A handmade children's counting book featuring animals in parent-child relationships. Each family group increases in number as the reader pages through the book, starting with one mother and one baby turtle and ending with a mother otter and her ten pups. Along the way, one encounters owls, bees, and salamanders, among others. The illustrations are skillfully completed in charcoal on thick paper. The pages are bound together with two metal rings between a card front cover, which bears a title label, and a board back cover. Covers show some wear and soiling, with a few closed tears at bottom edge. A delightful take on an apparently unpublished counting book, near fine. Item #28905
