    Four Color #25-36 Bound Volume (Dell, 1943-44). Here's another early Four Color bound volume sure to get collectors excited. These Western Publishing file copies, bound and trimmed into a hardback reference guide for the Western Publishing editorial office, includes a number of highly sought-after issues. Featured are #25 (Andy Panda, first issue); #26 (Popeye); #27 (Mickey Mouse and the Seven Colored Terror); #28 (Wash Tubbs); #29 (Donald Duck and the Mummy's Ring, the classic issue by Carl Barks); #30 (Bambi's Children); #31 (Moon Mullins); #32 (Smitty); #33 (Bugs Bunny "Public Nuisance #1", the first color issue); #34 (Dick Tracy); #35 (Smokey Stover); and #36 (Smilin' Jack). This volume was often used, with notes added to certain pages of the Donald Duck issue, and the binding is beginning to loosen along the spine; still, many of the covers still look glossy and fresh. Overstreet 2005 VG 4.0 value for group = $2,226. From the Random House Archives.
