Brief Details of this Book:
Walt Disney’s Sketch Book of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was only published in the UK and so this is a particularly scarce vintage Snow White book. This book is packed with illustrations used in the Walt Disney Snow White animation film that was released just one year earlier in 1937.
Walt Disney’s Sketch Book of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has numerous conceptual and planned story board images of sketches that helped to develop the Walt Disney Snow White animation film.
This Walt Disney Sketch Book of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has a colour frontispiece and 11 other colour tipped in plates that are laid on brown art paper and feature all the main characters from this timeless Disney animation film.
Condition of the Dust Jacket:
The original dust jacket is in Good condition that is mostly complete and still has its price to the front flap. However, the dust jacket does have a very small piece missing from the top edge of the front and top edge of the back of the jacket; small loss to the top of the joint of the front cover and front flap; foxing to the reverse of the jacket that comes through to near the spine where there is also slight fading; and a small repair to the reverse of the dust jacket that measures 3 inches (approximately). This scarce dust jacket does have some faults, but remains structurally very sound and very attractive.
