SKETCHBOOK. Of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
Collins. London. 1938. FIRST EDITION. 4to.(11.8 x 9.6 inches). Beautifully illustrated with 12 full colour plates, each mounted onto thick brown paper and each with a printed tissue paper guard. The plates show all the major characters in fully finished state including The Queen, The Witch, Snow White and, of course, the seven Dwarves- Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sneezy, Sleepy & Dopey. All other pages are illustrated with reproductions of the artists pencil sketches showing the development of the various characters, with notes beside the drawings. Decorative endpapers showing sketches of classic Disney style Rabbits, Birds and Deer, presumably Bambi was in the mind of the artists at this stage. Surprisingly, no American edition of this book was published. Original beige coarse grain cloth with black lettering to the front panel. Aside from some light marks to the outer edge of the cloth boards and endpapers this is a very good, bright copy in the original colour illustrated, price clipped dustwrapper showing Snow white and the Seven Dwarves on the front and two Fawns on the rear panel. Closed tears to the top and bottom of the dustwrapper spine have been strengthened to the rear of the paper with archive tape but overall a very good example of this fantastic book.
