Jack and the Three Sillies, Chase, Richard
2 Chase, Richard Jack and the Three Sillies
Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1950, Hard Cover Good No Jacket Children's Tolford, Joshua Signed by Illustrator
Worn green cloth cover. 8 1/4"w x 9 1/4"h. 39 pages. Signed by the illustrator, Joshua Tolford, who "... was an important member of the Rockport/Gloucester/Cape Ann art colony. Born in Wisconsin, he studied and painted in the Gloucester/Rockport Mass. area. He was a student of Anthony Thieme. Tolford was a juried member of the Rockport Art Association from 1941-1958. He was an artist for the WPA in the 1940's and also illustrated many popular books." [askArt] " The story this time is a mountain people version of a familiar folk legend, of foolish Jack who took the cow to market- and by progressively sillier decisions and exchanges came home with a stone to hold the door in place. The new twist comes in his wife's search for three sillier people than Jack. Fun to read- fun to tell- and the Joshua Tolford illustrations in pencil and in color, doublespread with text on every page, are just right for the story. They have humor and a certain casual charm."
