New York: Macmillan Company, 1942. First edition. Quarto, original tan cloth. Humorously inscribed by Walt Disney on the frontispiece: "To Clyde, Haven't you any better use for your money? Walt." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small chips and tears. Wonderfully illustrated throughout from photographs and drawings. Art critic Robert Feild's purpose in writing this book was "to present the art of Walt Disney as a growing force in our midst." Formal criticism of cartoon art was so entirely new at the time that "we have no standards by which to judge the art of today, no terminology with which to discuss, for instance, the work of a man like Walt Disney? How is one to write about Walt Disney if his art, which is that of the Animated Sound Picture, is to most people still a mystery while the artist himself is an enigma invariably associated with a Mouse?
