1938 The Story of Doc

The Story of Doc is part of the eight-book Snow White "Story of" series that was produced in 1938 by Whitman Publishing Company. Measures 7.5" x 11" and contains 24 pages. The leafs are made from an inexpensive pulp stock with somewhat heavier stock covers. The books were meant to used and colored by young readers, so finding copies free from marks and damage can be an expensive challenge.

There's two tales in which Doc loses his glasses. The first took place "50 years earlier at least" and we get to see what the dwarfs' leader looks like without his spectacles. Dopey helps him find them.

The second story occurs out in the forest. All the dwarfs and animals pitch in this time to locate the missing glasses.

  1. I recently added one of these books to my collection. These are such great books! Thank you for sharing this one.

    1. They are great, aren't they? And hard to come by too. They are on ebay, but they sure go for a lot of money. Glad you were able to add one to your collection. I'm still looking for the Snow White title.
