Windsor, VT: Original Check, 1946. 3 X 8 3/8 Inches. Very Good. Item #2869
Original hand-signed Maxfield Parrish check. Check made out to "Sears, Roebuck and Company" and is dated December 16, 1946. While Parrish needs no introduction to anybody perusing this listing, I do find it important to note that while his magazine and commercial work is widely known, his importance in literature is paramount. His world of fantasy, use of color and light and whimsical scenery set the tone for a century of tremendous book illustration from The Hobbit to Harry Potter. Mild toning to edges.
