Lot 595: Signed book: The Gremlins. First edition. NY: Random House, 1943. Hardcover, 9 x 11.25. Beautifully signed and inscribed on the half-title page in fountain pen, "To Joan, With best wishes, Walt Disney." Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG-/None. The Gremlins was Roald Dahl's first children's book and originally conceived as a promotional tool for a feature-length Disney cartoon. Although pre-production had begun, the studio dropped the project due to copyright regulations and restrictions ordered by the Royal Air Force, which was portrayed in the story. Even unsigned first editions of this book are scarce and prized by collectors, and with its large, gorgeous Disney signature gracing the half-title page, this is a superior example.Please email Erika.Rosenfeld@RRAuction.com for a complete description of the book's condition.
