United States: 1940s. A rather remarkable manuscript children's book rendering of the story of Snow White, with stunning original watercolor artwork. Watercolors of Snow White and/or the Dwarfs adorn each page. The manuscript is comprised of five thick leaves of large card, perhaps manufactured for albums, secured in the left-hand margin by a thick gold cord. The story itself is transcribed in a precise, careful hand, with the original pencil ruling just barely visible. Appears to be completely unpublished, and unknown. Measures approx. 18" by 15.25"; versos blank. Fine. Leaves somewhat bowed, some light foxing on last leaf verso.
