    Walt Disney's The Nutcracker Suite (Little, Brown and Company, 1940). Issued in conjunction with the release of Walt Disney's most ambitious project to date, this book tells the story and provides simplified piano arrangements for that segment of Fantasia based on Peter Ilich Tschaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite. In Very Good condition, the book has obviously been read, as it displays the normal wear and tear associated with a book of this vintage. The spine has been reinforced with clear plastic tape, and there is moderate scuffing and staining on the cover, but otherwise, this is an attractive and presentable volume. What makes this volume exceptionally special, however, is that it has been signed throughout by many of the artists and writers that worked on "Fantasia", including Samuel Armstrong, who directed the Tocatta and Fugue in d minor and Nutracker segments, writer and character designer Elmer Plummer, Art Directors Al Zinnen, Bob Cormack and Curtiss D. Perkins, background artists Ethel Kulsar, Nino Carbe and John C. Hench, and writer Sylvia Moberly-Holland, as well as Lloyd Richardson, Walt Scott, Phil Eastman, and Walt Peregoy. This is a fascinating, one-of-a-kind artifact from a classic film, and one that is sure to occupy a place of honor in any Disney aficionado's collection.
