He Done Her Wrong

Regarded by many as Gross's finest work. This is an early American example of the wordless novel, a story told entirely through pen and ink drawings. This work is considered to be a light hearted spoof of Lynd Ward's Gods' Man, which was published the previous year.

Inscribed by Milt Gross on the half title page: "To 'Hank' / Montgomery - / Here's one you / don't have to print / but its yours / just the same with / kindest regards / & affection / Sincerely / Milt / Gross"

Price: $400.00
