    One of Only One Hundred Copies

    [Disney]. Walt Disney's Pinocchio, Adapted from "Adventures of Pinocchio" by C. Collodi. London: Collins, [1939].

    First English edition, one of only 100 copies printed, of which this is number 11. Folio. Twelve pages of text, followed by twenty-nine pages of black and white storyboard-like sketches, all printed recto only.

    Original plastic ring-bound blue-green paper-covered boards, with printed paper label to front board. Marbled pastedowns. Tiny publisher sticker to front pastedown reading "Published Price £2.20." Boards soiled with a few bumps to corners, spine ends, and board edges. Very minor smudging to title page. Very minor bump to lower corner of pages. Otherwise, interior is bright and clean. With an ink gift inscription from "Mickey" on limitation page, in an unknown hand. A very good copy of a hard-to-find edition.

    From the Foreword: "This book records the development of characters and basic story of Walt Disney's second feature-length animated motion picture, 'Pinocchio.' In it are include a written story continuity, character model sheets, and story sketches. These rough pencil sketches, and thousands more like them, serve collectively as a plan or master pattern for the completed picture. Their function is to outline the action of the story as it will appear ultimately on the screen." This and the U.S. edition were issued to establish Disney's copyright of various aspects of the film, which was released the following year.
