The Adventures of Mickey Mouse. Book I.
David McKay Company, Philadelphia, 1931. An apparent Trial Copy Publishers color pictorial boards, color pictorial endpapers. [32] pages including title-page and dedication. Profusely illustrated with color drawings. A wonderful copy of the first major Disney story book. We believe this to be a 'trial copy' as the text block measures 8 3/16 x 6 inches; 208 x 152 mm. compared to 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches; 190 x 140 mm., on all other copies that we have seen over the years. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]
