Find of Newspaper Funny Pages Proof Sheets

We have been fortunate enough to acquire a supply of comic page proof sheets from 1935 - 1940. These color newspaper comics appeared weekly every Sunday. The comic strips on each page are "Henry" by Carl Anderson and "The Pussycat Princess" by Ed. Anthony, drawn by Ruth Carrol. Each proof sheet is different and has been folded in the middle. Some have thumbtack holes at the top and bottom from their use at the paper. Size 17 1/2" x 24".

Both of these comic strips are King Features Syndicate.
