How cartoons are made...

Item # 698558

October 14, 1916

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Oct. 14, 1916  The entire front page is taken up with an illustration captioned: "Animated Cartoons In the Making: Filming the Successive Drawings." showing a man doing just that. An inside page is entirely devoted to: "Animated Cartoons in the Making--How 16,000 Drawings are Prepared & Photographed in Producing 1000 Feet of Motion Picture Film" with related photos as well.
Note also the nice full page Cadillac car ad.
This gets back to the very earliest dates of cartoon making for motion pictures and certainly a significant issue for any collector of cartoon, animation or film history.
Sixteen pages, small library stamp to the upper corner, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 343 (released for June, 2024)
