    Description

    Mickey Mouse Book Later Printing (Bibo & Lang, 1931) Condition: VG. Disney's first licensed publication doesn't turn up often, and very few copies have pages 9 and 10 intact the way this one does (page 9 featured a puzzle meant to be cut out). In fact, a couple of penciled check marks in the margin of one page are the only signs of use, and the only reason this didn't grade higher is because of a three-inch spine split at the top and a two-inch split at the bottom. It couldn't be determined whether this is a second, third, or fourth printing. The content is simply delightful, with song lyrics, Win Smith strip reprints, and a text story telling how Mickey met Walt. Bonus fact: the cover art is by Ub Iwerks, and as the Overstreet guide noted some years ago, "This may be the only Disney book to have an originally drawn Iwerks cover." Overstreet 2007 GD 2.0 value = $1,050; FN 6.0 value = $5,000.
