In 1947, four limited edition lithograph portfolio prints were published by the New York Graphic Society. Two featuring Snow White and two Bambi. They were available in three different sizes.

The set of four lithos are included on p.199 of the 1974 Disneyana book by Cecil Munsey. The author lists the original 1947 prices and sizes: 10" x 12" ($1.00), 15" x 18" ($2.00), and 20" x 24" ($4.00).



The four original watercolor paintings for these lithos went up for auction in 2014 by Profiles of History. Each measures 23.25" x 19.5".
