J. Blan Van Urk, author of The Story of American Foxhunting and other scholarly books on the sport, had a lighter side, which is expressed in his delightful children's book, Little Charlie, The Fox. Included in this collection are the author's heavily corrected carbon typescript, plus six other copies; ten original illustrations (plus photostats) and three original promotional concepts in red and black pencil on tissue; six Christmas cards featuring Little Charlie, plus two others; and an early TV storyboard for Philco featuring Little Charlie, along with a file of business correspondence regarding the commercial use of the Little Charlie character, which gives this fascinating archive a unique appeal.
