A Tale of Two Glimps
Bemelmans, Ludwig

New York, N.Y.: The Columbia Broadcasting System, 1947. F (50) pages; illustrated in color and black and white by Ludwig Bemelmans (1898 - 1962) writer and illustrator, who "...was, to a point, a victim of his own success, being classified as primarily an author of juvenile fiction. He was in fact a remarkable humorist and a special kind of immigrant writer whose view of the United States and Europe in the 1930s and 1940s ought to be rediscovered. His art deserves serious consideration as well..." (Wulf Koepke in the ANB) The 'Glimps' book was an enthusiastic promotional for the new technology of color television, published by the Columbia Broadcasting System.
