PARKER,N. AND B. FUNNY BUNNIES: ARTIST'S MANUSCRIPT WITH WATERCOLORS. This is the rare original manuscript for the Parkers' book Funny Bunnies published in London by W. & R. Chambers circa 1905. This original is composed of a ring bound sketch book containing all of the original watercolors used in the book (including the covers), as well as paste-ups for each text page that are also generously illustrated in line. The art for the covers has been mounted onto a single sheet of grey paper to form the covers of the manuscript. Like the published book, it is oblong measuring 14" wide by 10 inches, slightly larger than the published book and except for a short crease on the cover it is in fine condition. The text in verse tells about the daily doings of a family of humanized bunnies that are portrayed in great detail with humor and affection. Aside from the text drawings and interesting publishing notations, there are 14 fabulous full page finished waterecolors that if sold separately would amount to much more than the price of the entire manuscript. Original work by the Parkers is ultra rare and this is a wonderful opportunity to own the complete work for a picture book by them.
