        Donald & Pluto (Flip Book) Cine livre en 5 Blocs

      Paris: Hachette, (1939). Wraps. Near fine. Narrow, stiff pictorial wraps illustrated in color, and housing five individual flip books printed double side to give a total of 10 scenes. Complete with the instruction card laid-in. This is a scarce enough Disney item, but the French version is downright rare, probably because it was published just before the outbreak of the war. There is some light soil on the rear cover, and marks to left of cover where internal concealed staples, presumably oxidized, have caused small stains, else this is a fine copy; the individual flip books appear never to have been used. In French.
