    Description

    The Landon Course of Cartooning Instructional Books and Promotional Material Group of 6 (Charles Nelson Landon, 1929). Charles Nelson Landon (1878 -1937) was an illustrator for The Cleveland Press, art director for the Newspaper Enterprise Association and art editor of Cosmopolitan. He is most notable as the founder of the Landon School of Illustration and Cartooning, a mail-order correspondence course that trained a generation of leading syndicated cartoonists in drawing for publication. Presented are five training booklets from this course and a collection of promotional mailers sent to prospective enrollees. These are the personal training manuals from which Warner Brothers animator Rev Chaney learned how to cartoon. The lot provides a fascinating insight into what was a potentially lucrative career in the early 20th century. All the items show handling. Condition is Good. From the Rev Chaney Archives.
