#460 - Charles Schulz Estimate: $8,000+

Schulz inks Charlie Brown as a "charter member" of the Beat Generation in 1958

Original hand-inked four panel Peanuts daily comic strip drawn by Charles Schulz for May 30, 1958, 28 x 6, signed vertically in the last panel with his artist signature, "Schulz." The comic follows a conversation between Linus and Charlie Brown: Linus asks, "Have you ever heard of the 'Beat Generation,' Charlie Brown?" Looking forlorn, Charlie replies: "Oh yes… I'm a charter member!" Affixed at center is a 1958 United Feature Syndicate copyright notice. Includes a TLS about this strip, signed "Charles M. Schulz," one page, 8.5 x 11, personal Peanuts letterhead, June 12, 1958, in full: "I was very pleased to hear that you liked the strip about the 'beat generation.' Now, I do not have the originals here, but I am going to forward your letter to the syndicate, and if it is still available, I am certain that you will get it from them soon." In overall very good condition, with some toning and staining to both pieces (much heavier to the letter). Accompanied by the original mailing envelope for the letter. An exceptionally desirable, early Peanuts strip, enhanced by Schulz's original correspondence on the subject.
