Price : US $750.00
R F Outcault's Pore Lil Mose from 1902
This is a SUPER rare comic.
COMPLETE, YES, COMPLETE!!!!! All 36 color prints are present.
You NEVER find this complete.
Dealers have been pulling this one apart for years and selling the individual pages for as much as $100 each.
This one even has the back cover and dedication page which are usually the 1st two pages lost when this is pulled apart.
There are some repairs that have been done:
Right top corner of the front cover has split and been repaired from the inside with a glued stiff cardboard at the split.
Black cloth tape has been added to the entire spine for reinforcement.
Dedication page has been mounted to a fullsize newsprint page and been rebound into the book.
Book is oversized approx 11' by 15'
Inside prints are basically nice with a few tears and a few taped repairs. My photos should show you the full range of what the pages look like.
Platinum age books are fragile and splits & creases are super common. You just don't find this book in any other condition than 2.0 GD at the best. Overstreet doesn't even have a grade for it higher than 6.0 FN (although you'll never find one even that high).
Overstreet lists this book for $1500 at 2.0...I would say this one would grade at about 1.5.
