    Description

    Walt Disney Parade Story Book (Walt Disney, 1940). This book was illustrated by Walt Disney Studio artists and has stories of the Brave Little Tailor, The Practical Pig, Donald's Penguin, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Ugly Duckling, Pinocchio, and eight other shorts. It also has a great final page showing Mickey Mouse dreaming with images for films in development like The Reluctant Dragon, Bambi, Fantasia, and Dumbo. This book was a gift to the daughter of Ben Carter. Ben Carter was the engineer for the General Electric Company from Bloomfield, New Jersey. Ben Carter oversaw the installation of heating and air conditioning systems for the new Walt Disney Studios located in Burbank. The book is boldly signed "To Mary Elizabeth/With my best wishes/Walt Disney." A newspaper article from Thursday October 13, 1940 has an interview with Ben Carter and he talks about Walt Disney signing the book for his daughter. A copy of that article is included in the lot. Book is missing the dust jacket and has handling and edge wear. Good condition. This lot will have to ship from Dallas to the winning bidder.
