MICKEY MOUSE BOOK

DISNEY,WALT. MICKEY MOUSE BOOK / HELLO EVERYBODY. NY: Bibo and Lang 1930, copyright Walter E. Disney. 4to (9 x 12"), green pictorial wraps, 15p., a fine intact copy with no soil or wear. This is the true first Mickey Mouse book (one of the early issues with bottom panel of rear cover blank and with the word "kill" retained in the song). Published in order to raise money for his new film studio, this includes the Story of Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse Game, Mickey Mouse March and a Mickey Mouse Song entitled "Mickey Mouse ('You Cute Little Feller') with accompanying arrangement for the ukelele. Illustrated by the Disney Studios with full page and partial page drawings in black, green and white. The story was written by Bobette Bibo, the 11 year old daughter of one of the publishers. Due to its fragile nature, few copies of quality exist today. See Munsey: Disneyana (p.163, 166) who notes "The book was a small venture, and a relatively small number was produced. Today, the few that survive complete with the game board are eagerly sought by collectors." A beautiful copy.
