A Thurber Original on Ebay Offered For $20,000.00

From the Dept. of Hey Big Spender: an original Thurber that appeared in The New Yorker, May 21, 1938, and was republished in Thurber’s collection, Men Women and Dogs (Harcourt, Brace & Co., 1943) is up for grabs on Ebay with the asking price of…$20,000.00.

  I’m almost certain the aforementioned Mr. Nadler of Attempted Bloggery will let us know how this auction turns out (his site specializes in examining auctioned New Yorker art). Below is what the drawing looked like in the magazine way way back when it was originally published.
