    Disney Press Book (United Artists, 1935). Pressbook (19 Pages). This is a very rare item, one which we have never seen before. Mickey Mouse was about to turn seven years old in 1935 and Disney wanted it to be an occasion the exhibitors' of the cartoon shorts would make note of. He produced a mimeographed booklet 19 pages in length, detailing how the exhibitor could sell this occasion of September 28, 1935. This was seven years to the date of the release of Steamboat Willie. The mimeograph machine or stencil duplicator were for many decades used to print short-run office work, classroom materials, and church bulletins. These technologies began to be supplanted by photocopying in the 1960s. There was a Mickey Mouse Revue released to mark the date which consisted of several Mickey and Silly Symphony shorts to be shown the full week of September 28 to October 4. There was special set of stills, snipes for the one sheets and buttons produced. The book is stapled and printed on one side of each page. There is some minor separation of the back page and a small stain on the lower right corner of the book which was absorbed to each page. This is a very rare item and for the Disney collector, a once-in-a-lifetime find. Very Fine.
