De Beukelaer Snow White "Sticker" Book from Belgium

This 20 page softcover was first published in Belgium by De Beukelaer bakery. It includes 100 numbered spaces to glue the De Beukelaer collectible cards (seen in previous post). The book measures approximately 13.5" x 9.75".

The dominant two languages spoken in Belgium are Dutch and French, so it's not surprising that this title was published separately in both. Same story, same stickers, just different languages. It seems that numerous editions of the book have been printed. They date from circa 1940.

French version (F1) was bound in a reddish-brown softcover and held together with a simple red cord. Another later French edition (F2) was spiral-bound in an orange softcover. A Dutch (D) edition came with a spiral-bound blue softcover.

  1. That is so neat! And it's always a treat to see Snow White's real mother.

  2. These are really cool. I have a couple Alice ones as well. It is likely that these came out around the 1952 re-release of Snow White.

  3. Venus-- Yes, it's not often that Snow White's real mother is shown or mentioned in the Disney version of the story.

    Matt-- I bet you're right with the date on the spiral-bound books. This kind of binding seems to "modern" for something made in the late 1930s.
