    Robert Crumb Long John Silver Sketchbook Original Art dated 5-6-61 (1961). The young Crumb children were fans of the Walt Disney adaptation of Long John Silver, starring Robert Newton. Here's a page from one of Robert's sketchbooks featuring a detailed graphite sketch of Newton from the film, plus a nice full-figure drawing of "Mabel" from Robert and Charles' homemade comics. A second sketch of Mabel's profile, plus a "Fritz"-like cat face and an old man round out the 5.25" x 8" page, which has been professionally separated from the reverse side and affixed to archival backing paper. In Very Good condition.
