CHARLES SCHULZ 4 PANEL PEANUT’S COMIC STRIP DRAFT COPY
Circa 1960. As stated in affixed strip on 1st panel reading “Tm. Reg. U. S. Pat. Off.-All Rights Reserved / Copr. 1960 by United Feature Syndicate Inc.”. First 2 panels are divided vertically from last 2 panels with fold mark. 3rd panel “9-16” in hand of artist, 4th panel signed “Schulz” in artist hand above a rectangular area of white which was applied to the page. This is evidentially a draft copy prior to the final draft. We don’t know if this was intended for black and white or color. Housed in a gesso molded silvered wood frame of the period. SIZE: 7″ x 29″. Overall 9 1/4″ x 31″.
NOTE: Purportedly a gift from Charles Schulz to Thelma Petz who had knee surgery and her nurse was a niece of Charles Schulz who had received this from him as a gift to Thelma. It originally had a note from Schulz (born in 1924), but has faded away. This was given to Thelma in 1960.
