    George Herriman archys life of mehitabel Original Art (Doubleday, 1933). Archy, a poetic cockroach invented by humorist Don Marquis, inspired many illustrations by Krazy Kat's creator, Herriman. The caption here derives from a poem called "certain maxims of archy" (sic), in which a flea observes that "millionaires and bums taste about alike to me." Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 7" x 10". A discolored paste-up at the upper edge also serves as a COA, being a price-tag from a dealer in Herriman's art. Lightly toned. Excellent condition.
