American children's book illustrator (1912–1996) celebrated for his work on such classics as Stuart Little, Charlotte's Web, and the Little House series. Charming original unsigned artwork by illustrator Garth Williams for the endpapers of the first edition of E. B. White's classic, Stuart Little, published by Harper & Brothers in 1945, accomplished in pen-and-ink on an off-white 15.25 x 11.25 sheet. The marvelous illustration features two scenes: one of Stuart Little in the garden, and one of a bird overlooking a pastoral woodland river landscape, both over a crosshatched 'windowpane' background.

Through the charming adventures of a small mouse navigating a vast world of humans, White imparts invaluable lessons on courage, kindness, and the beauty of embracing one's uniqueness. The classic tale captivates readers of all ages not only with its whimsical narrative, but through the enchanting artwork of Garth Williams, who vividly brings Stuart's world to life. Together, White and Williams craft a timeless masterpiece that continues to inspire imagination and wonder in generations of readers, reminding us that no matter how small we may feel, our dreams and aspirations hold immeasurable significance.
