In a below post from Nov. 9th, 2009 on this blog, I had covered the earliest British Disney books, concentrating on publications by Dean & Sons Ltd. Recently, two early Disney books by Dean which I was not aware of hence had not mentioned in that post were offered on ebay. One of them was Mickey Mouse Presents Bucky and Bo which is probably a re-formatted British edition of the American Mickey Mouse Presents a Silly Symphony (1934) from Whitman's Big Little Book series.

On the other hand, a Mickey Mouse Painting Book by Dean was sold for a winning bid of 41.75 Br. pnds: Below is a sample page:
