Blue Ribbon, New York, 1933. Glorious early Disney pop-up "presented by" Mickey Mouse, part of the pioneering Blue Ribbon movable book project that gave pop-ups their name. In her study of movable books, Jacqueline Reid-Walsh notes that "the term 'pop-up book' is a modern one of American coinage that emerged in the 1930s when Blue Ribbon Publishing worked with the Disney studio to loosely adapt popular fairy tales into a movable book format." For this ambitious paper engineering project, Disney chose two shorts from their animated SILLY SYMPHONIES, "Babes in the Woods" and "King Neptune." "Babes in the Woods," based on a Brothers Grimm work, shows the company's early experimentation with classic fairy tales before their pivotal first full-length feature film (also from Grimm): SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (1937). "King Neptune" was an original story conceived to lavishly show off the underwater fantasy setting in Technicolor, and now in 3D paper construction. A delicate book, it is difficult to find in collectible condition, complete with the original dust jacket and all pop-ups intact. 9.5'' x 7.25''. Original color pictorial boards. In original color pictorial dust jacket. Pictorial endpapers. Illustrated with full page and in-text color images and 4 glorious double-page pop-ups (illustrated front and back). 48 pages. Only light edgewear to boards. Jacket lightly soiled with a few tiny chips around corner and spine ends. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
