Item Description: 1930. A group of 57 meticulously hand-drawn and richly colored illustrations by Dooley Dionysius: 24 panels created to illustrate "Pinocchio," each approx. 14 1/2 x 11 1/2 in., on stiff buff card stock or art paper (including a mock-up of the title page, 16 panels split between a color illustration and a penciled sample line or two of text, 1 page of black & white design illustrations for chapter ends, and 6 full page color illustrations); and 33 panels for an original tale entitled "The Story of the Taj Mahal," on stiff buff card stock or art paper, in varying sizes from 9 x 12 in. up to 16 1/2 x 23 in. (including a full color title page, a pen & ink and black watercolor title page, 24 pen & ink and black watercolor illustrations, and 7 full color illustrations, 5 of which are matted [some old staining to mats]). Traces of mounting on versos of most of the images. Dionysius was known for his almost microscopic brush strokes, fanciful designs, and jewel-like painting, often compared by critics to Persian miniatures. His work was exhibited in many St. Louis galleries in the 1930's (including the St. Louis Art Center where two of the "Pinocchio" drawings were displayed), as well as at shows in Los Angeles, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the California Water Color Society, and Marguerite Zimbalist's Twenty Dollar Gallery. Born in Kirkwood, Missouri, H.J. "Dooley" Dionysius attended the Washington University School of Fine Arts in the mid-1920's. He spent 10 years in Hollywood working alternately as a jewelry designer, an apprentice to Willy Pogany designing murals for William Randolph Hearst, and in the art department at the Walt Disney studios. In 1932, the Healy Galleries in St. Louis mounted a one-man show of his works. A story by Guy Forshey in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on March 13, 1932 describes Dionysius' work: "His subject matter is of a nature that lends itself admirably to his peculiar style of treatment. He paints pure fancy. His scenes are almost invariably placed on lost continents or in lands which have existed only in the imagination of men. Unlike most water color painters, he does not blend color into color, but builds color on color producing an opaque effect." He often worked in miniature, and critical reviews of his watercolors remark on their exotic nature: "The tiny still life arrangements of flowers remind one of medallions in enamel or semi-precious stones. In all of these the draughtsmanship is meticulous and the compositions are so perfectly in balance that you do not think of such an element as deliberate composition in connection with them. You feel the rhythm of the dancing figures, the swing of the boats and the swell of the waves." His work for the PWAP/CWA during the 1930's included creation of a mural of Mother Goose for the Benton School Kindergarten in St. Louis. Dionysius' ambition was to write and illustrate childrens books. According to brief biographies in "Artists in California, 1786-1940," by Edan Hughes and in "Who's Who in American Art 1936-41," he was the author/illustrator of two books, "Black Opal," and a version of "Mother Goose Rhymes." The Census records of 1940, record him in New York City as a lodger, his profession listed as "illustrator," most likely looking to find a market for his other book designs. We have found no record that either his "Pinocchio" or his "Story of the Taj Mahal" was ever published. Bookseller Inventory # 60697

Item Description: New York: The Viking Press, 1936, 1936. Quarto. Original pink paper covered boards, grey cloth spine, lettering to spine in pink, pictorial endpapers, with the dust jacket. Housed in a pink quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. An excellent copy in dust jacket with light rubbing to ends of spine and a bit of light soiling to top edges and flap folds. Black and white illustrations throughout by Robert Lawson. First edition, first printing. A beautiful copy of this classic children's tale, of a bull who liked to smell flowers under the cork tree rather than fight in bull fights. Published just months before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, many saw it as a Pacifist title. It was banned in several countries, including Spain. Hitler ordered the title to be burned, while Stalin allowed it to be the only non communist children's title allowed in Poland and Mahatma Gandhi proclaimed it as his favourite book. This title was also the basis for the 1938 Walt Disney animated short which won the Academy Award that year in the best short film category. Bookseller Inventory # 92666

Folio 350 x 320 mm. 11 pages on artist board featuring page layout and the original celluloid illustrations for The Ugly Duckling Story which was in the D. C Heath title Little Pig's Picnic and Other Stories by Margaret Wise Brown. Housed in a blue cloth solander box. Page 5 without the celluloid illustrations, An excellent set. Walt Disney Studio illustrations throughout. First edition, first printing. A fantastic group of original Disney Studio celluloids. Due to accurate representations being distorted with some license holders, Disney decided that in-house illustrators were their best option in accurate representations of their characters, which resulted in stories such as this one having its illustrations as celluloid pieces. This item was featured in 1997 October issue of Walt Disney's Comics, the article states that very few of these original story board celluloids survived given their fragile nature, making this group a rare collection. Included with this is a copy of Brown's Little Pig's Picnic and Other Stories which featured this story. Bookseller Inventory # 98003

Item Description: Burbank, CA: Walt Disney Productions, 24 August 1939, 1939. In excellent condition. Watercolour over pencil on paper. Sheet size: 30.3 x 25.3 cm. Production label to verso. Mounted, and presented in a manufactured gold leaf frame with conservation glass. Original concept art for The Pastoral Symphony segment of Walt Disney's Fantasia (1940). It depicts a young faun picking grapes and is signed M. Schwartzman on the verso. Melvin Schwartzman (1914–2012), later known as Mel Shaw, joined Walt Disney Studios in 1937 and worked as a concept artist and designer on several productions, including Bambi (1942). However, he left the studio in 1941 to serve as a filmmaker with the U.S. Army Signal Corp. The post-war years saw Shaw starting a design business with Bob Allen, before returning to Disney in 1974, where he contributed to several of the major features of the modern era, including The Rescuers (1977), The Fox and the Hound (1981), The Great Mouse Detective (1986), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and The Lion King (1994). "Mel Shaw's influence as an animation design artist extended over many decades and many studios. He worked with Hugh Harman and Rudy Ising in the early days of both the Warner Bros. and MGM cartoon studios. At the beginning of World War II, he contributed designs to Orson Welles's never-realized film of Saint-Exupery s The Little Prince. His best known artwork is the series of dramatic pastels in the title sequence of The Rescuers (1977), showing the bottle containing Penny's call for help riding stormy seas. Shaw said the drawings were originally just preliminary studies for an animated sequence, but when director Woolie Reitherman saw them, he said they didn't need to be animated – they could carry the sequence as they were" (Charles Solomon, Variety, 27 November 2012).

Item Description: New York: Random House, 1939, 1939. Large quarto. Original spiral bound cloth boards, label printed in red to front cover. Despite being a ludicrously flimsy piece of book construction (presumably in whimsical imitation of inhouse Disney ring-bound project books), this copy has survived in outstanding condition. Facsimile typescript and storyboard, printed on one side of the leaf. One of 100 copies only of the original American edition, this copy a presentation to William ("Tex") Henson on the occasion of his 20th birthday in 1944, shortly after he joined Disney as an assistant animator. The front pastedown has the gift inscription "Best wishes to Bill Henson from [William S. Henson] June 1944 [20 Birthday]", the words in square brackets being added in another hand, presumably the recipient's, the first over an erasure. The front free endpaper is inscribed "Bill Henson, Walt Disney Productions 1944" in the presenter's hand; the limitation notice is further inscribed by fellow animators Fred Kopletz and George Owen. Henson worked on Disney's first post-war feature, Song of the South, and made a name for himself campaigning for the animated chipmunk duo, Chip 'n' Dale, to become regulars in the Disney repertory. He later moved to Mexico, supervising the studio of the animator Jay Ward, their best-known creation being the bulbous-nosed, dim-witted Bullwinkle the Moose. Bookseller Inventory # 44640

Aquarell und Deckweiß über Bleistift auf Karton 49,5 x 37,5 cm Verso Nachlassstempel Heinrich Kley Provenienz: Nachlass Heinrich Kley Die Idee, den Schauinsland bei Freiburg im Breisgau durch eine Seilbahn für die Allgemein-heit zugänglich zu machen, geht in die 1890er Jahre zurück. Verwirklicht wurde das Projekt jedoch erst drei Jahrzehnte später. 1928 wurde die Schauinslandbahn Aktiengesellschaft gegründet, die neben der Kapitalbeschaffung auch für die Planung und Projektabwicklung zuständig war. Die Grundsteinlegung der Bahn erfolgte am 8. Mai 1929, die Inbetriebnahme am 17. Juli 1930. Die Schauinslandbahn ist die erste Großkabinen-Umlaufseilbahn der Welt, die große Menschenmassen befördern kann. Auf der gesamten Strecke dienen sieben Stahlstützen mit Zugseilrollen und Tragseilauflagen als Seilträger. Bei einer Länge von 3.600 m beträgt die größte Seilspannweite 734 m; die höchste Stütze misst 37 m. Ursprünglich war die Bahn mit zehn Kabinen ausgestattet, die jeweils 23 bis 25 Fahrgästen Platz boten. Die Fahrzeit vom Tal bis auf den Berg betrug 16 Minuten. Der für seine Darstellungen aus der Welt der Technik bekannte Künstler Heinrich Kley gibt in seinem in kühner Perspektive angelegten Aquarell den Blick vom Berg ins Tal wieder, so wie er sich dem Betrachter bei Verlassen der Schauinslandbahn am Gipfel präsentiert. Natur und Ingenieurskunst verschmelzen zu erhabener Einheit und legen die Vermutung nahe, dass das stimmungsvolle Aquarell zu Werbezwecken im Auftrag der Schauinslandbahn AG entstanden ist. Sicherlich wollte sie den Besuchern des Schwarzwaldes und damit ihren potentiellen Kunden vor Augen führen, dass die Schauinslandbahn Wanderern und Wintersportlern den größtmöglichen Komfort bei der Anreise auf Freiburgs Hausberg bietet. BIOGRAFIE: Heinrich Kley (1863 Karlsruhe - 1945 München). Nach Beendigung des Studiums an der Karlsruher Kunstschule 1885 ist Heinrich Kley darum bemüht, sich im Kunstleben seiner badischen Heimatstadt zu etablieren. Zwar erhält er immer wieder Aufträge von ortsansässigen Privatpersonen, Behörden sowie Unternehmen, engagiert sich in der lokalen Künstlerschaft und nimmt an Ausstellungen teil, doch bleiben größere Erfolge letztlich aus. Diese stellen sich erst nach 1900 ein, als das Unternehmen Krupp in Essen auf Kleys Fähigkeiten als Schilderer topographischer Sujets aufmerksam wird. Durch die Verbindung von zeichnerischer Präzision und koloristischem Feingefühl gelingt es ihm, die spezifischen atmosphärischen Stimmungen in der Welt der Gußstahlfabriken, Hüttenwerke und Schiffswerften einzufangen. Seine um impressionistische Elemente bereicherte realistische Kunstauffassung überzeugt bald auch andere große Unternehmen, so dass Kley innerhalb weniger Jahre den Ruf eines erstrangigen und vielbeschäftigten Industriemalers genießt. Der breiten Öffentlichkeit wird Kley durch die Mitarbeit an den Zeitschriften Simplicissimus und Jugend bekannt, die ihn 1909 zum Umzug nach München bewegen. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlichen sie hunderte seiner humoristischen, satirischen und grotesken Federzeichnungen. Themen der Gesellschaftspolitik, des technischen Fortschritts sowie des Verhältnisses zwischen Mann und Frau erfasst er mit phantasiereichen Bildideen, psychologischem Einfühlungsvermögen und unverwechselbarer Virtuosität. Mit gleicher Könnerschaft charakterisiert er menschliche Verhaltensweisen durch Mensch-Tier-Vergleiche pointiert und unterhaltsam. Obwohl es nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ruhig um den von Schicksalsschlägen getroffenen Künstler wird, erfahren seine Federzeichnungen eine erstaunliche Rezeption in den USA. In den späten 1930er Jahren wird Walt Disney auf sie aufmerksam und nutzt sie fortan als wichtige Inspirationsquelle für seine Zeichentrickfilme. So lebt Kleys Kunst in den Figuren von „Dumbo“, „Fantasia“ und „Dschungelbuch“ weiter und begeistert weltweit ein Millionenpublikum. Signatur des Illustrators.

Item Description: Primarily Italy and aboard the S.S. Rex, 1935. Photograph Album. Book Condition: Very Good. The hardcover album is 6" x 9" and filled with over 100 uncaptioned 2.5" square photographs. Four colorful tourist labels for Florence, Naples, Capri, and Lake Como are affixed to the front cover. Photographs include shipboard swimming, tennis, dining, relaxing, etc. Other photographs are of Capri, Pompeii, Malta, the Amalfi Coast, and other Mediterranean tourist sites. Of special note are three rare snapshots of Walt and Lillian Disney onboard a passenger ship, S.S. Rex. In two of the photos, Walt and Lillian are carrying a large Mickey Mouse doll. In the third, Walt appears to be discussing business with two other men, one of whom is holding a Mickey doll; Lillian is barely visible along the right margin, also holding a Mickey Mouse doll. (A publicity photograph in the Disney collection shows Walt and Lillian in the same clothes and carrying the same Mickey doll while strolling on the deck of the Rex, a xerox copy will be included.) Walt and Lillian, along with Roy and his wife Edna, had taken an extended European vacation to relieve the strain caused by problems encountered in the development of Snow White. After six weeks, they boarded the Italian steamship, S.S. Rex, on 24 July for their return trip home. Apparently the compiler of this scrapbook was on the same voyage to New York and snapped these photos. The trip rejuvenated Walt and Roy, and both eagerly and energetically returned to the studio. In addition to providing the impetus needed to finish Snow White, the European trip had another lasting effect. Walt had purchased over 300 books while on the trip and later wrote in a memo, "Some of those little books which I brought back with me from Europe have very fascinating illustrations of little people, bees, and small insects who live in mushrooms, pumpkins, etc. This quaint atmosphere fascinates me." Apparently, it also resulted in such little characters becoming a staple in his films. (see Disney's Grand Tour by Didier Ghez). Bookseller Inventory # 008347
