    Description

    Mickey Mouse the Mail Pilot Big Little Book #731 Disney File Copy (Whitman, 1933) Condition: FN/VF. The second Mickey Mouse Big Little Book; considered difficult to find in high grade by Larry Jacobs in his 1996 Big Little Books: A Collector's Reference and Value Guide. The infamous Underground comic Mickey Mouse Meets the Air Pirates copied this cover illustration; a lawsuit was the result! This copy has been stamped along the right page edges "Property of Walt Disney Enterprises Do Not Remove from Book Case", and similar stamp marks appear on the inside front cover and first page. Floyd Gottfredson, whose art appears inside, has signed the first page. Definitely a delightful copy of a tough book to find, with historical provenance; one can imagine Walt Disney himself chuckling over this cool little book! 300 pages. Overstreet 2004 FN 6.0 value = $100; VF/NM 9.0 value = $200.
