RARE DISNEY1930 1ST"MICKEY MOUSE BOOK"COMPLETE VF+/8.5+COMIC STRIP VERS. 2 ADDITIONAL PHOTO REFERENCES CAN BE FOUND AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF MY LISTING PAGE!!!!!! LIMITED EDITION WITH COMIC STRIPS INSERTED! DISNEY 1930 THE FIRST "MICKEY MOUSE" SADDLE STITCHED BOOK. THE EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTORS WERE "BIBO AND LANG". THE BOOK MEASURES 9" X 12". THE BOOK IS IN OVERALL VERY FINE PLUS(8.5)/EXCELLENT OR BETTER CONDITION WITH MINIMAL COSMETIC AND/OR CONSTRUCTION DISTRACTIONS(MOSTLY LIGHT SPOT STAINS TO THE BACK COVER WHITE BORDER AREA FROM DECADES OF SHELF TYPE EXPOSURES). PHOTO REFERENCES FOR BOTH COVERS AND ALL INTERNAL PAGES AND EXTRA CLOSE-UPS. PLEASE USE THESE REFERENCES FOR THE BEST TOOL TO USE IN DETERMINING THE EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY OF THIS WONDERFUL BOOK FOR YOURSELF. A PICTURE IS STILL WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS............

A LITTLE BACKGROUND IF DESIRED TO DIGEST. DISNEY ACCEPTED THE OFFER AND SOON THE MOUSE BEGAN APPEARING ON SCHOOL NOTEBOOKS. BUT ALSO OFFER AN AVENUE OF PUBLICITY FOR HIS STUDIO'S CHARACTERS, WALT DISNEY SIGNED LICENSING AGREEMENTS WITH VARIOUS COMPANIES TO REPRODUCE DISNEY STUDIO CHARACTER IMAGES ON A MULTITUDE OF MERCHANDISE. BIBO AND LANG, ONE OF THE STUDIO'S EARLIEST LICENSEES PUBLISHED THE 1ST DISNEY CHARACTER BOOK IN 1930.

THE BOOK WAS TITLED SIMPLY AND FITTINGLY, THE MICKEY MOUSE BOOK. WHILE SOME COLLECTORS HAVE ASSUMED DISNEY ANIMATOR UB IWERKS DREW THE 1ST MICKEY MOUSE IMAGE ON THE BOOK'S FRONT COVER, A NEW YORK FREELANCE ARTIST NAMED ALBERT BARBELLE MAY HAVE BEEN THE ILLUSTRATOR. BARBELLE SUBMITTED A BILL TO THE STUDIO IN 9/1930 FOR HIS WORK ON THE BOOK.

IN THE FALL OF 1930, 26,219 COPIES OF THE BOOK WERE PRINTED. THE 1ST COPIES WERE OFFERED FOR SALE IN THE 11/15/30 ISSUE OF "THE OFFICIAL BULLETIN OF THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB". COPIES OF THE 1T RUN WERE OFFERED ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY TO THEATER MANAGERS AS A PROMOTIONAL ITEM MEANT FOR DISTRIBUTION AMONG MICKEY MOUSE CLUB MEMBERS. ONE SALEM OREGON THEATER ORDERED 2,500 COPIES.

1ST RUN COPIES CONTAIN ADVERTISING ON THE INSIDE FRONT AND BACK COVER. DUE TO THE POPULARITY, IN 12/1930, A 2ND RUN CONSISTING OF 25,050 COPIES WAS PRINTED. SEVERAL REVISIONS WERE MADE AND A FEW OF THOSE WERE: ADDING THE NAME BOBETTE BIBO TO THE TITLE PAGE; 2 REVISIONS TO THE GAME BOARD FOUND ON PAGE 7, SOME COPIES WITH THE ADDITION OF TWO WIN SMITH COMIC STRIPS WITH 1 ON PAGE 8 AND THE OTHER ON THE BACK COVERMY RESEARCH HAS CONVINCED ME THAT MOST OF THE ISSUES DID NOT HAVE THE COMIC STRIPS, BUT I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND OUT WHY.

MOST EXAMPLES THAT I HAVE SEEN OVER THE YEARS ARE WITHOUT THE COMIC STRIPS AND THE SAME AREAS THAT WERE USED TO ADD THEM WERE BLANK. I HAVE NEVER COME ACROSS ONE OF THE 1ST VERSIONS, BUT IF ONE EXISTS IN THE SAME CONDITION AS THE 2ND VERSION LISTED HERE, IT WOULD BE NEAR PRICELESS. MOST EXAMPLES ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN THROWN OUT BY THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB MEMBERS AFTER READING/PLAYING WITH THE SAME. THE MICKEY MOUSE BOOK CONTAINS THE FIRST RECORDED "HISTORY" OF MICKEY MOUSE.

BOBETTE BIBO, THE 11 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER OF ONE OF THE BOOK'S PUBLISHERS, ALLEGEDLY WROTE THE 4 PAGE STORY. ACCORDING TO HER STORY, "MOUSE NUMBER THIRTEEN" WAS EXPELLED FROM MOUSE FAIRYLAND BECAUSE OF HIS TRICKS AND CAPERS.

MOUSE THIRTEEN WAS THROWN THROUGH THE AIR AND JUST HAPPENED TO LAND ON A ROOF IN HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA. TRAVERSING DOWN THE CHIMNEY, THE MOUSE HAPPENED UPON ONE WALT DISNEY. THE WONDERFUL STORY GOES ON FROM THERE, VERY COOL......

DO NOT LET THIS 90 YEAR OLD TREASURE PASS YOU BY AS THERE ARE VERY FEW OF THESE LEFT IN THE WORLD IN THIS CONDITION OR BETTER(CAN'T GET MUCH BETTER). HARD TO BELIEVE THAT MICKEY'S 100TH BIRTHDAY IS LESS THAN 8 YEARS AWAY!!!!!!!

I WILL BE SEALING THE BOOK IN A FRAMED AND MATTED FORMAT SET. I HAVE ADDED TWO ADDITIONAL PHOTO REFERENCES THAT CAN BE FOUND BY SCROLLING TO THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
