    Description

    Charles Schulz Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Charlie Brown and Lucy Original Art dated 5-7-64 (United Feature Syndicate, 1964). A funny strip with a bit of a story behind it! A 1963 news article alerted Schulz to the discovery of "Eraserophagia" by Doctors J. L. Curry and W. J. Howland. This equates to "nibbling on pencil erasers", which then show up as mysterious spots on X-rays. Schulz worked the disease into a weeklong bit in Peanuts from 5-4-64 to 5-9-64. One of the funniest was this strip from 5-7-64, with Lucy's characteristic brand of compassion for her fellow man. As the personalized message in the top margin indicates, this was gifted to Dr. W. J. Howland himself. The piece was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 27" x 5.5". The strip is signed in the last panel in the top margin. There are several spots of whiteout across the strip that seem to cover up pencil scribbling in the margins and the image area. It has been folded between panels to allow mailing to and from the syndicate, as was common on Peanuts strips. Overall in Good/Very Good condition. Comes with a photocopy of some of the other strips and the newspaper article that inspired them.
