Price: $950.00

A 48 page corrected typescript of a book titled “JINX” along with 6 original hand-painted illustrations done b the author herself, the Countess Catherine Karolyi (1898-1985). Laid in a homemade green paper binder with a piece of tan burlap affixed to the front. A watercolor illustration by Karolyi is present but no longer affixed to the cover. Title page reads story and illustrations by Countess Catherine Karolyi; adaptation into English by Elizabeth Burrows Archer. On the next page is the following note: “As Countess Karolyi was doing the illustrations in Paris while I was rewriting the story in Zurich there are several discrepancies between the illustrations and the text at the moment. Few sample illustrations. The story of a miniature boy, no bigger at the age of 7 than a milk bottle. He is given the nickname Jinx because of his bad luck. Over 30 pages of the text have corrections in pencil, 17 probably made by the translator. His brothers constantly pick on him and his only friends are Mr. Mouse, Sir Anthony Prettytail – a caged swallow, and Mr. O’Muffin, a rag doll. He runs away and on the way out frees Tony the Swallow from his cage. He finds a badly beaten Mr. O’Muffin in need of help. Jinx goes to Toyland to find help for his friend where he is given a passport on the Dolltown train. The King of Toyland is gravely ill and in need of a magic medicine called Greenicillin. Jinx goes to the Toyland pharmacist to buy some but finds it is only available in a place called “Leaf-land” whose location is unknown. Jinx sees Doctor Fixitup to tell him about his wounded friend back in Man’s Land and the Doctor tells him about a magic growth medicine that the King uses once a year to grow in size and visit the world of Man’s Land. Jinx sets out to find Leaf-land to procure some of the Greenicillin. so he may save the king and get the growth medicine in return. Jinx returns to his rag doll friend in the forest and Mr. O’Muffin tells him of a visit with Mr. Septimus Dew from a place called Leaf-land. Located high in the branches of the tree. Jinx hitches a ride up the tree from Mr. Snail to the top branch where Leaf-land lies. He meets a Dr. Green who will give him his only bottle of Greenicillin if he slays the pesky Herr Creepy Caterpillar who keeps attaching Leaf-land. With the help of Tony the swallow, Jinx defeats the creature in battle and becomes a hero in Leaf-land. The doctor gives him the medicine and Jinx is flown back to the Palace by Tony, where he finds the King barely alive. Jinx gives the medicine to the King’s seven (7) wise old doctors and soon the King is cured. The grateful King gives Jinx the growth medicine and he returns home to his grieving family as a normal-sized boy. The six (6) watercolor illustrations by Karolyi are well executed and mounted on grey craft paper. The illustration include: the King in bed surrounded by his seven(7) doctors after he has taken the medicine; Jinx hiding under a tea cup; Jinx talking to the Toy land pharmacist; a portrait of Dr. Green in uniform; Herr Creepy Caterpillar attacking Leaf-land; and Jinx growing in size after taking the special medicine. Condition-wise the text and illustrations are in very good shape with some light wear. The green binder has significant wear and is separated at the spine. The cover illustration is separated from the burlap and cover.
