    Big Little Book #731 Mickey Mouse the Mail Pilot (Whitman, 1933) Condition: VF. Big Little Books first originated in the 1930s as a new format to help comics survive the Great Depression. This new smaller format retailed for ten cents and began by reprinting newspaper strip art. As Big Little Books grew successful, original art and movie adaptations began to be seen in these little books. High-grade examples of Big Little Books are scarce as they are damaged easily due to the way they were constructed. Prices recently for these little books have been big! This scarce softcover edition was issued in 1933 as an Amoco American Gas Premium. In spectacular condition, it some with gorgeous color and very little edge and spine wear. The contents have slightest margin aging but remain exceptionally clean and tight. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
