    Four Color #313-384 Bound Volumes (Dell, 1950-52). This group of six bound volumes is a real gold mine of great Dell "one-shot" comics from the early 1950s. Found inside the covers of these volumes are issues #313-384 of the Four Color series, including such important books as "Donald Duck in No Such Varment" (Four Color #318), "Donald Duck in Old California" (Four Color #328), and "Christmas for Shacktown" (Four Color #367, all by Carl Barks; the first solo comic book featuring Marge's Tubby (#381); several Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, and Porky Pig "long adventure" issues; the first issues of Frosty the Snowman (#359), Frances the Talking Mule (#335), Bob Clampett's Beany and Cecil (#368), and The Lone Ranger's Famous Horse Silver (#369); all this, plus a copy of I Met a Handsome Cowboy (#324)! Can't be beat! All comics were Dell file copies that were bound and trimmed to produce these collections for office use; many books still look fresh and new.
