(Disney, Walt). Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilich, story inspired by; Stark, Frederick, arrangements THE NUTCRACKER SUITE FROM WALT DISNEY'S FANTASIA
Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1940. First edition. Square quarto. Bound in color-illustrated paper-over-boards with black-lettered yellow cloth shelfback. Hardcover. Very good plus: light wear and abrasion to the extremities, rubbing to boards; some scattered finger soiling within; lacking dust jacket.
Disney's animated interpretation of Tchaikovsky's perennial, rendered as a spectacular illustrated music book with six arrangements for piano. Color and b&w art crowds every corner; the bug orchestra and flowers even dance along the musical measures!
