    Description

    Mickey Mouse Book (Bibo and Lang, 1930). The first Mickey Mouse book, published in 1930 by Bibo and Lang, makes this a truly key artifact. It measures 9" x 12", and contains drawings by the Walt Disney Studios. This is the even more scarce first printing, which uses the words "Kill him" in a song (referring to the big bad villain) that were removed from later printings. There is just slight shelf wear, a small tear at the bottom of the cover, minute splitting at the bottom of the spine; otherwise this jewel is in Excellent condition and contains all pages, including pages 9 & 10, which are often missing. The original owner's name is penciled lightly across the top of the front cover. Printed in the U.S.A. Overall condition is from Very Good to Fine. Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $1,150; FN 6.0 value = $5,400. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
