    Description

    The Art of Walt Disney: From Mickey Mouse to the Magic Kingdoms First Edition with Multiple Signatures (Disney/Abrams, 1973). Charlene "Cherie" Miller worked in Disney Studio's Ink and Paint Department from approximately 1953 to 1990. In her nearly four decades there she had the privilege to collect the autographs of an array of fellow employees from departments throughout the company. This is her personal first edition copy of Christopher Finch's book The Art of Walt Disney - From Mickey Mouse to the Magic Kingdoms which is considered by many as one of the best books ever produced about Disney Studios. What makes this one particularly unique is that it contains the signatures of dozens of Disney's legendary directors, artists, and innovators who Ms. Miller met while working at the studio. Included are Woolie Reitherman, John Lounsberry, Ken Anderson, Frank Thomas, Milt Kahl, Andre Deja, Blaine Gibson, Don Iwerks, John Pomeroy, and Bill Justice to name but a few. Most of the signatures appear within the first three pages, but a few others are featured on pages within the book where the signer is referenced. The 458 page book measures approximately 10.75" x 13.75" and is 2" thick. Die-cut cardboard images of Mickey and a paint bucket are affixed to cloth-bound outer cover under a clear dust jacket. The dust jacket shows very minor wear and overall condition is Very Good. This lot will have to ship from Dallas to the winning bidder.
