1937 Walt Disney Signature / Autograph Book Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

1937 Walt Disney SIGNATURE / AUTOGRAPH Book SNOW WHITE and the Seven Dwarfs

"SATURDAY'S TOYS Presents..." a magnificent example of Walt Disney's signature autograph... circa 1937 / 1938...on the color title page of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."

Rarely does such a beautiful item appear for sale; on or elsewhere... and this one is a true archival treasure; worthy of the finest Walt Disney library or museum collection; an investment grade Walt Disney collectible.

The book is in excellent condition with no writing (other than Walt's!) and includes the original dust jacket for the book. Illustrated with original drawings from the Walt Disney Picture; Harper and Brothers; 1937; First Edition. Autograph is vintage 1930's and appears to have been written with a fountain pen / black ink(see close-up of signature; below). Approx. 10" x 13"; with shelf wear from normal handling through the previous 75 years. Still, the book remains tightly bound with full-color covers.Dust jacket is protected under a mylar cover (easily removable).

The film premiered in Los Angeles at the Carthay Circle Theater on December 21, 1937... and the event was attended by Shirley Temple, Clark Gable & Carole Lombard, Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Cary Grant and a host of Hollywood celebrities. The night proved to be acolossal success. Box office receipts from the film shocked the entire industry; making "Snow White" the most successful motion picture of its day. Not until "Gone With the Wind" was released in 1939did another motion picture surpass the success of Walt Disney's"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Even today, the film stands

As such, this remarkable film stands the test of time and has become history's most beloved animated film. The success thrust the Walt Disney Studio into a new stratosphere and suddenly Walt Disney and his films were in demand as never before. It is unknown exactly how many of these books Walt signed in promoting the film, or as gifts for friends, family members, or industry executives. What is apparent, however, is that not many of these treasures have survived the past 75 years in such amazing condition. (be sure to visit the Walt Disney Family Museum at the Presidio of San Franciscoto view this identical book... as inscribed to Walt Disney's daughter, Diane. It's priceless!)

As obtained through the estate ofthe prominent Napa Valley family who purchased the item from the Howard Lowery Gallery sale on April 23, 1995.
