    Will Eisner The Spirit Planche 6 - 26 juin 1949 (Register and Tribune Syndicate, 1949). Nous voici en présence d'un mystère en chambre close d'un genre inhabituel. C'est Ebony, le fidèle compagnon du Spirit, qui se retrouve pris au piège dans "L'ascenseur" en compagnie de dangereux gangsters ! Mais le véritable mystère est celui-ci : le garçon d'ascenseur est-il - ou non - le Spirit ? Une planche que l'on doit au génie d'un des maîtres incontestés de la figuration narrative, le grand Will Eisner. Encre de Chine et crayon sur Bristol, surface de l'image 49.5cm x 35.5cm. Quelques résidus de colle provenants de photostats des logos et dates de parution, en haut et en bas de la page, sans que cela n'affecte la zone de l'image. La planche est très légèrement jaunie ; hormis cela, elle est en excellent état.

There is glue residue from missing paste-up banners at the top and bottom of the page, but not affecting the image area. The board is lightly toned; otherwise, the page is in Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
