    Mickey Mouse Book Later Printing (Bibo & Lang, 1931) Condition: VF+. Disney's first licensed publication is almost unheard-of in this condition -- complete copies are tough to come by, never mind high-grade ones! Also, this one does not have interior markings of any sort. It couldn't be determined whether this is a second, third, or fourth printing, though the presence of "Age 11 Years" on the first page, as well as the absence of the lyrics "kill him" inside, shows that it is not a first printing. This copy previously sold in the June 29, 1996 Sotheby's auction (though not identified as a later printing at the time) with a consultant's grade of "very fine 87." The content is simply delightful, with song lyrics, Win Smith strip reprints, and a text story telling how Mickey Mouse met Walt Disney! Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value (highest value listed) = $10,000.
