    Richard Scarry - Big Golden Book #12056 Nicky Goes to the Doctor Cover and Story Illustrations Original Art, Group of 38 (Simon and Schuster, 1949). Richard Scarry is a big favorite among the younger set. These colorful illustrations tell a story about Nicky Bunny going to see Dr. Doctor and Nurse Nightingale. Children learn what to expect in a routine physical exam, and Nicky has so much fun that all of his brothers and sisters can't wait to go! Included here are the front and back covers and nine interior page illustrations by Scarry, painted on illustration board. The line drawings have been printed on a clear acetate overlay, and are attached to the illustrations. Also includes 27 original Scarry pencil drawings for each page, and 24 pages of production art, with photocopies and type stats, used to mock up the final. The illustrations have an approximate image area of 10" x 10," and the covers have an approximate 11" x 14.5" image area. The type-set captions are not included; otherwise the art averages in Excellent condition. From the Random House Archives.
