1978 Circle Fine Art Press 'Snow White' Book

This classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs book was originally published in 1978 by Circle Fine Art Press, Chicago/New York. Limited edition of 9500. Hardcover, 224 pages. Dimensions: 14" x 11". White leather cover with raised bands and 22-karat gold leaf highlights. Individually numbered. Housed in red slipcase. Includes four serigraphs printed on acetate.

Additional images via Heritage Auctions.

They must have had copies left over from the initial publication because this same limited edition book would reappear nine years later in the Fall 1987 Walt Disney Family Gift Catalog. Retail price $299.95.

In 1979, Viking Press published a general release of the book. See it in the next post. An Italian edition was issued in 1980, followed by a French version in 1981, both with less pages.
