    Donald Duck Annual Story Illustrations Original Art Group of 8 (Walt Disney/Collins, c. 1940s-50s). Fans of the Disney Duck named Donald are going to do a flip when they see this art! Similar to the Mickey Mouse Annuals, Donald Duck Annuals featured all-new art and story prepared exclusively for British children; this collection of story illustrations really pops with bright, vivid colors. The first piece, a two-page spread, features Donald as part of the Three Caballeros with José Carioca and Panchito Pistoles, riding on a flying carpet and passing a sharp-toothed caiman, noted as 88 and 89 (approximate image size 18" x 9.75", board size 20.5" x 13"). Another two-page spread is a great title illustration for "Donald the Fisherman," noted as 24-25, and from the 1956 Annual (image 21" x 14", board 23.5" x 17.5"). A third double-page spread features Donald in apparent trouble at the fair, and includes his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, noted as Page 8 and Page 9, also from the 1956 book (image 20" x 9.5", board 22" x 11.5"). Five pieces are smaller illustrations: Donald slipping on a slick surface, his candle flying in the air, noted as Page 18 (image 5" x 6.5", board 6.5" x 8.75"); Donald, with his nephews bouncing on a couch, noted as Page 22 (image 8.25" x 5.5", board 10.5" x 7.5"); a happy Donald reading a book inside, while the boys are running from something outside, noted as 47 (image 8.25" x 7.5", board 9.5" x 9"); Donald falling hard and seeing stars, noted as 74 (image 5" x 4.5", board 7" x 8.25"), and finally, a great image of Donald after an enormous fish dinner with a lot of fish bones and a joyous expression, noted as Page 14 (image 7.5" x 6.75", board 9.5" x 9.25"). This 60+ year-old art is painted in gouache and watercolor on illustration board. Art condition is overall Good, with handling/edge wear, and scattered stains on some, mostly in the border areas.
