COLLODI,CARLO. PINOCCHIO - ORIGINAL ART. Offered here are 2 great finished watercolors by Richard Floethe for an edition of Pinocchio published in 1946 by World Publishing Company as a title in their Rainbow Classic series. The first image measures 4 x 6", the second is 4 1/2 x 5". The first piece appears opposite page 65 in the book and shows the Soldier holding Pinocchio by the nose, just after he's run away from Geppetto. The second appears opposite p. 96. Pinocchio is shown begging the theatre manager, Fire Eater, to spare Harlequin from being used as fuel. The two wooden soldiers are also in the picture. Floethe had illustrated an edition of Pinocchio for the Limited Editions Club in 1937, but these illustrations are completely new and different. Both images are quite charming.
