(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $12,262.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Signed book: Ivanhoe. Member edition. San Francisco: Bohemian Club, 1936. Hardcover, 5.25 x 8, 107 pages. Signed on the reverse of the first free end page in pencil by Disney, who adds a wonderful sketch of Mickey Mouse. Also signed on front pastedown and opening pages by 28 members of the Bohemian Club in ink or pencil, including: Charles G. Norris, Harry I. Weil, G. S. Brush, Matt C. Brush, Frank J. Frost, John Thomas, Fred S. Myrtle, Irvin S. Cobb, Joseph Blethen, Rogers F. Shoemaker, Frank Van Sloun (adding a self-portrait caricature), Ferdinand Burgdorff (adding a full page owl sketch), Rafael Kubelik, Saul Blythe, Marshall Dill, Jerome Landfield, Clarence Cowan, Chet Woolsey, and Dave Garland. In fine condition, with signed page detached, and some scattered mild toning, a bit of light soiling over Disney’s sketch from pencil transfer of Burgdoff’s sketch. Book condition: VG/None.

Contrary to popular perception, Disney never completely animated a single Mickey Mouse cartoon, nor did he draw a single Mickey comic. He would on rare occasion offer a quickly constructed version of his iconic figure. As such, sketches of Mickey by Disney remain highly coveted and seldom encountered. Pre-certified Phil Sears.
