    Box Set of Six Pinocchio Books (Whitman, 1940). Called "the most perfect animated movie" by many aficionados, there is no doubt that the release of Disney's version of Pinocchio was a high water mark for the studio. As with Snow White, one of the studio's major partners in producing books using the Pinocchio characters was Racine Wisconsin's, Whitman Publishing Company. Offered here is a stunning boxed set of their six "Story Paint" books. With each highlighting a major character (Jiminy Cricket, J. Worthington Foulfellow (what a great name!) and Gideon, the Blue Fairy, Gepetto, Figaro and Cleo and Pinocchio himself), the individual covers are real eye-catchers. Each volume is about as close to Mint condition as you'll ever see, with only the very slightest touch of spine wear. Completely uncolored, interior page quality remains quite good. The star of this show, however, is the stunning original box. Vibrant, sharp colors with no signs of any major wear. No corner splits, virtually no edge wear. There is a small nicked area at one corner and some very light box scuffing. Can't imagine ever finding a nicer one. A major addition to even the most advanced Disney collection. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
