Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs by Walt Disney 1st / 1st 1938
FIRST UK EDITION published by Collins in 1938. The very rare dust wrapper is mostly complete with a couple of tears to the top of the spine and a small tear to the bottom of the spine. It is not price clipped displaying the correct price of 5/- net. There are foxing marks to the top of the front panel. And a further small tear to the bottom of the front flap join. The book also has light foxing marks to the top of the boards and to the top text block. The bottom of the spine is split a couple of centimetres but does not affect the binding. There is a previous owners inscription to the front free end paper, dated in the year of publication. Overall a very good copy.
It is rare to find the UK first edition with its wrapper and in such complete condition. It was published in the same year as the animated film as can be seen on the many colour and monotone illustrations throughout. Proclaims on the front of the wrapper and book 'An authorized book of the Walt Disney film'. A very rare title with these attributes.
