HARRISON CADY (1877-1970)
"Nature Stories." Group of 7 illustrations. Published within the famous daily story series Burgess Bedtime Stories by Thornton W. Burgess, August 1951. Pen and ink with graphite on paper. Average size 178x150 mm; 7x6 inches. Signed, dated, and captioned lower margins. Each tipped to window matte.

This group comprises 7 illustrations for the stories Burgess published between August 11th and September 5th 1951 that followed the adventures of Little Stripes the Chipmunk.
