New York: Blue Ribbon Books, Inc., . First edition. Original color pictorial paper boards. Minimal rubbing to extremities. The bare minimum of very light marginal soiling, otherwise an exceptional example of this very scarce early Disney pop-up book. All three color pop-up plates are fine and bright. This is an especially nice copy of the Minnie Mouse pop-up - far more difficult to find than the Mickey Pop-up.
An early appearance of Minnie Mouse, who was originally created as Mickey's companion in 1928. Here, she takes center stage in her own pop-up book -- the result of her growing popularity in the late 20s and early 30s. As other Disney characters joined the Mickey Mouse universe (notably Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto), books and comic strips featuring Minnie Mouse became increasingly scarce until her comeback in the early 1980s.
