The James Marshall books that might have been….

Down at the U of Southern Miss. they have some of James Marshall’s papers.
It’s a treasure trove of original art from his books that I would love to see. (There are more in Oregon, including the Yummers dummy which I would love to see.)
But there’s something even more tantalizing at the USM library. Dummies and MSs for books that apparently were never published. Here’s the list:
