Artist, David Stone Martin 1913-1992 xpost pen & ink

I believe I have my hands on an original piece of old art by this artist. From what I gather on the internet, it's the art used for a 1955 album cover ("Ralph Burns Among the Jatps") and it is "exact." The paper is art paper (little bit of texture), and on the back is a lighter paper-colored image of the front. Is this a lithograph and possibly the back is an imprint from that? I've searched the internet and do not find one single "copy" of this particular art piece, which leads me to believe it could be the real deal. Anybody got any ideas? BTW, I came to this forum because David Stone Martin is a renowned illustrator, especially for jazz album covers, but I know very little about his medium... Thank you very much.

I'm pretty sure it's a lithograph. I have many lithographs by DSM, having lived next door to him, when I was growing up. He gave entire portfolios of them to my parents for Christmas, in the 1950's, and I treasure the 30 or so that I have. My house looks like a DSM museum! From what I've seen, they tend to sell at around $250, although a few have sold at auction for about $500. Could you tell me the subject matter, or post an image of it? At least I could tell you if I've seen it before. He did do lithographs of many of the album covers and book illustrations. You may email me directly at delincolon@yahoo.com if you like.

I have a print or lithograph of DSM that I would like to know what it is from. It doesn't seem like an album cover as there are no words and the subject is children. It was also pencil signed in 1990 DSM which seems strange because he passed only 2 years later. Also it is on a large textured paper that is folded in half and artwork only on half.
