The original 1952 cover art for the award winning children’s book
has sold at auction in New York City for more than $155,000.
A spokesperson for Heritage Auctions says the cover, drawn by Garth Williams fetched more than five times its estimated sale price. The buyer is a New York collector who wishes to remain anonymous. The book by E. B White, is about a friendship between Charlotte the spider and Wilbur the pig, who is saved from slaughter.
