London, (Burbank): Dean & Son, (Walt Disney Studios), (1933). Seven artboards with artwork used in preparing the British edition of "Mickey Mouse in King Arthur's Court" after the success of the 1933 American edition.
The cover and Pop-Up pages from the American edition published by Blue Ribbon Books were removed, affixed to boards or heavy paper, and reworked with new color and details, added by hand, using gouache and watercolor paint.
The lot includes seven artboards, with the front and back cover, inside fly-page double spread, and Pop-Up art for all four two-page spreads. The Pop-up book was published by Dean & Son, London, in 1934. The spine has been reworked, and the "Pop-up" description on the front board has been changed to "Scenic".
The artwork is in good to very good condition, with a couple of later minor repairs and some wear and corner loss to the boards to which the artwork is affixed. Housed in a new cloth-backed portfolio.
Accompanied by a copy of the Dean & Son edition. A fine copy with only a trace of wear.
. Very good. Item #19058
