A Pricey Barbara Shermund Catalog

Here’s a curiosity for those with deep pockets.  According to its listing:

This catalogue contains images of 40 of Barbara Shermund’s New Yorker cartoons. It has a one page introduction of her contributions to the Magazine. The cartoons pictured are from the late 1920s and early 1930s. The cartoons are matted and framed.

Puzzling why the work is bracketed from 1926 through 1936, when Ms. Shermund’s work continued to be published in The New Yorker until the issue of September 16, 1944. Also puzzling: that the cartoons are “matted and framed” — I suppose just like the catalog’s cover image. If someone buys this (it costs $125.00) I’d appreciate hearing what you make of it.
