This book is out of print and in the condition offered somewhat hard to find. The book was independently published for a select audience and not marketed widely by trade standards. The untimely death of one of the principals caused the small publishing firm to suspend business activity. It is highly unlikely that it will ever be reprinted in the quality manner it is now presented.
Condition: This volume is new in mint condition with original shrink wrap with publishers seal intact. The dust cover sports both silver and gold deep foil embossing plus a photo of Walt Disney And The Sherman Brothers. The blue cloth cover is also foil stamped in silver. Every page is full color except black and white archival photo's inserted. Again Condition is Pristine.
Preface by Roy E. Disney (Walt's nephew) , Foreward by Marty Sklar (VP Walt Disney Imagineering) and introduction by Leonard Maltin.
