    Carl Barks Uncle Scrooge McDuck His Life and Times Hardcover Limited Numbered Edition #457/5000 (Celestial Arts, 1981). Here's the ultimate Uncle Scrooge comic book, a massive, deluxe leather bound hardcover volume featuring eleven of the very best stories written and drawn by Carl Barks, complete with previously unseen deleted panels, all re-colored by artist Peter Ledger. In addition, there are features on Barks' early life and career, notes and drawings from "Go Slowly, Sands of Time" (one of Barks' last Scrooge projects), and even a special signed and numbered Carl Barks lithograph, "Wanderers of Wonderlands", done especially for this book. For fans of the "Good Duck Artist," it doesn't get much better! The lithograph is in Excellent condition, and the book shows only very slight signs of shelf and corner wear; otherwise, Very Fine. Copies of this high-demand book have sold for $500-$750 in previous Heritage auctions.
