    Richard Scarry - Little Golden Book #212 Pierre Bear Cover and Story Illustrations Original Art, Group of 29 (Simon and Schuster, 1955). Richard Scarry wrote and illustrated over three hundred picture books for children. Each one was jam-packed with slapstick and visual humor. More than three hundred million copies of his books have changed hands, and many of the stories were translated into foreign languages. Scarry is one of the most popular children's book authors of all time. He revealed to children the secrets of everyday life. His worlds were easily understood, populated by polite, well-mannered animals with a keen eye for absurd human behavior. In this Little Golden Book from 1955, brave Pierre Bear weathers the elements to hunt, and raise a family, in this charming tale. The cover illustration has an image area of 7.5" x 9," while the interior illustrations have an approximate image area of 6.5" x 8". The illustrations have been painted on heavy paper and mounted onto support board. The type-set captions are still intact, and the art averages a Very Good condition. The lot includes a copy of the Pierre Bear book. From the Random House Archives.
