1955 Snow White Piano Songbook arr. by Ada Richter

The Ada Richter Snow White song book for piano dates from 1955. Licensed through the Bourne Company, it contains a total of 21 pages. Measures 12" x 9". Original retail price $1.50.

A story page proceeds the table of contents.

This "Snow White" number is one of several unused songs created for the film by Larry Morey and Frank Churchill. Even though it's not in the motion picture, the piece still finds its way on occasion into the movies' published sheet music.
