1931 · London
by [Walt Disney Studios]
London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd, 1931. First U.K. edition. Near Fine. Publishers color pictorial boards, color pictorial endpapers. Lacking the scarce dust jacket. Slight sunning to spine and gentle shelfwear to spine extremities and board edges; but in all a square, pleasing copy. Complete in  pages including title-page and dedication. Internally unmarked and bright, profusely illustrated with color drawings. A wonderful copy of the first major Disney story book published in the UK.
Every page is illustrated in color with Mickey and the gang in this early and significant presentation of their antics and personality development. In fact, this book includes the first reference to Donald Duck, who didn't become a real Disney character until 1934. These characters have dominated the imagery and ideas of generations of children and this is one of the earliest appearances. Near Fine.
