    Robert Crumb - Sketchbook Pages Original Art Group (No Publisher, 1961-62). Compulsive doodler Robert Crumb kept his pencils busy in these pages from two different early sketchbooks. Five two-sided pages are from a 5.25" x 8.25" unlined sketchbook, including the title page, listed as "School Note Book 1961"; these pages include hand-lettered notes on school assignments, sketches of people and faces; drawings of Fritz the Cat and other animal characters (including a great sketch of Fritz caught in a draft, with his umbrella blown out); and some partially inked figures, done in brush and pen. One sketch of Mabel includes an added drawing of young Jim, done by brother Charles. The second set of three double-sided pages is on line notebook paper measuring approximately 6.75" x 8.5, and include some tighter pencil sketches from the following year, including schoolgirls, diary entries, self-portraits, and other fascinating goodies. Other than the first title page, which is worn and taped, the pages are in overall Very Good condition.
