The Ugly Duckling.
[And] Little Pig's Picnic and Other Stories.Boston: D. C. Heath and Co., 1939 Stock Code: 98003
ORIGINAL CELLULOID ILLUSTRATIONSFirst edition, first printing. A fantastic group of original Disney Studio celluloids. Due to accurate representations being distorted with some license holders, Disney decided that in-house illustrators were their best option in accurate representations of their characters, which resulted in stories such as this one having its illustrations as celluloid pieces. This item was featured in 1997 October issue of Walt Disney's Comics, the article states that very few of these original story board celluloids survived given their fragile nature, making this group a rare collection. Included with this is a copy of the D. C Heath's Brown's Little Pig's Picnic and Other Stories which featured this story.
Folio (350 x 320 mm). 11 pages on artist board featuring page layout and the original celluloid illustrations for The Ugly Duckling Story. Housed in a blue cloth solander box. [Together with] Octavo. Original brown illustrated boards, title in brown and blue.
Walt Disney Studio illustrations throughout.
Page 5 without the celluloid illustrations, an excellent set.
