    Uncle Scrooge Bound Volume Group (Dell, 1952-1968) Condition: Average VG/FN. For fans of the Richest Duck in the World, this is truly the mother lode! This lot consists of four leather-bound volumes containing between them the first 74 issues of Uncle Scrooge, all featuring stories and art by the best Duck man in the business, Carl Barks. Included in Volume One are the early Four Color issues: #386 ("Only a Poor Old Man"), #456 ("Back to the Klondike"), and #495 (the "Horse-Radish" story). Included in Volume Four is the infamous story "Treasure of Marco Polo," which was banned from reprints for many years because it was construed by some to be an allusion to the war in Vietnam. All of the comics appear to be in decent condition. Aside from the necessary trimming needed to bind the books (which were privately bound; these are not file copies from Western Printing), all comics are readable and all pages intact as best as we can tell without reading all four volumes. Believe us, we wanted to take them home and read them! The whole glorious history of Carl Barks' best known creation is here in its entirety! Overstreet 2004 value for group = $3,108.
