    Description

    Charles Schulz - Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 5-22-68 (United Features Syndicate, 1968). Just when Linus manages a prime position in the sandbox, Mother Nature intervenes to ruin his fun. A charming and fairly unusual "silent" strip (Peanuts was generally driven by verbal humor), this wonderful daily highlights a favorite character (Linus) and shows Schulz's genius for panel-to-panel pacing. This superb daily has never been on the market before, having remained in a private collection since being given to a collector by Schulz, who inscribed it "For Melinda with every best wish -- Charles Schulz." The art measures 28.5" x 8" and is in Excellent condition, with the usual crease between the second and third panels (Schulz folded it in this manner in order to mail it to the syndicate), and some fading on the inscription. Peanuts dailies, especially those prior to 1975, are hotly coveted by collectors, and pieces such as this, which have never been offered for sale before, tend to generate a tremendous amount of excitement. Don't let this one pass you by!
