    Boxed Set of the Seven Dwarfs Books (Whitman, 1938). The release of "Snow White" in 1938 resulted in a flood of related Disney licensed memorabilia. There were a number of Snow White related books released -- by Whitman, Grosset and Dunlap and others -- both in the U.S.A. and overseas. This particular Whitman series includes a separate book for each of the Seven Dwarfs and Snow White herself. Printed on an inexpensive pulp stock with somewhat heavier stock covers, they were designed to be read and colored by younger readers. While individual volumes can be located, almost all show some coloring and wear. The Larry Jacobs Collection, however, presents us with perhaps the finest complete set to appear on the market in many years. The eight separate books in this boxed set show virtually no wear. The covers are nice and bright, interior page quality remains surprisingly good. The original box -- so elusive that even many top Disney collectors have not seen one -- is complete. Box lid images are sharp and clear and there are no corner separations. There are some light moisture markings, edge/corner wear, and a bit of chipping/scuffing to box lid. One corner is separated on bottom of box, and there is some moisture marking and overall light wear. Even in a collection of this scope, this particular item stands out. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
