    Description

    Big Little Book #717 Mickey Mouse (Whitman, 1933) Condition: VG. The first Big Little Book titles were designed with hardboard covers, paper spines, and 320 pages which generally, but not always, alternated between pictures and text. Whitman's archives indicate that five titles were originally conceived. They can be identified by their paper spines, their outside dimensions, and length (320 pages). One of the original five Big Little Books published by Whitman, was this hardcover with art by Floyd Gottfredson. Valued on many different levels, not the least being that it was the first Mickey Mouse Big Little Book, and also a difficult book to find. Whitman used reprints from the daily 1931 Mickey Mouse comic strip to fill the interior pages. There is a penciled inscription on first page, otherwise this copy is in Very Good condition. A hard to find book that's hard to beat! Overstreet 2005 GD value = $150; FN value = $500. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
