MICKEY MOUSE FABLES


This vintage British Disney book by the Collins Clear Type Press titled Mickey Mouse Fables was recently sold on ebay for the winning bid of 54.5 pounds. The seller estimated its date as "circa 1934", an estimate which is undoubtedly off the mark by several years as the renditions of Donald Duck does not feature the long and narrow beak he sported in its early appearances in 1934 and in the subsequent few years. I would estimate the book to be from the late 1930s.

Very interesting find. Do you own the Snow White Annual published by Dean and Sons?

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, I do have the British SW Annual. I had indexed about half of it for inducks: http://coa.inducks.org/issue.php?c=uk%2FSWA++1

Kaya O, I don't remember if I already written on your splendid blog. Surely I always have read it because it's one of the most important and essential. I'm really "in trouble" because I have a problem about 2 pages from Mickey Mouse Weekly. Can you help me to solve the matter? The matter is really important (not only for me), and I WANT to give you infos, so if you can help me, my email address is: provenzano.vinc_1952@libero.it

I wish I have not... "scare you": it wasn't my intention! But the matter really lies at heart for me. Thank you anyway!
