Roy Doty's Copy of the Art of The New Yorker 1925-1995

Cartoonist Roy Doty's copy of Lee Lorenz's The Art of The New Yorker 1925-1995 is personalized by Mr. Lorenz and by New Yorker cartoonists Robert Weber and Ed Fisher. They did not leave any original drawings in the book for their fellow cartoonist, but author George Plimpton left one of his odd propellar-shaped doodles. The book was sold for $45 plus shipping last year on eBay.
