    Fantasia Book Mock-up (Walt Disney, 1940). This is a bound mock-up of the Deems Taylor book on Fantasia that was released at the time of the film. It features trimmed copies of beautiful concept art, pasted onto blank sheets. It's a fascinating look into the early stages in the development of this landmark art book considered one of the most desirable from Disney's Golden Age of Animation. Handwritten in graphite on inside the sleeve is "To be published 11/15/40" "120 pictures in color." There is no title is on the cover, serious wear to the spine, and no dust jacket. This appears to be a "working document" for initial studio consideration. Inside are approximately 73 prints trimmed and pasted for placement amongst text which is pasted in on only nine of the pages. Most all of the glue has let go and there is very little text. It is an early mock-up used in the planning of this popular book and certainly a one-of-a-kind Fantasia collectible. Condition is Fair to Good.
