The Snow White Moving Eye Book.


The Snow White Moving Eye Book.

Full-page illustrations of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves on the front cover and recto of each leaf, all but the last in colour, by Pax Steen.

First Edition. 4to. [260 x 189 x 4 mm]. [8]ff including stiff stapled wrappers with the title printed on the rear cover.

[London] Printed in Holland for B[irn]. B[rothers]. Ltd, [c.1952]

Each of the eight characters has his and her eyes hollowed out and replaced with a shared pair of plastic transparent disks containing a black moveable "pupil" which are attached to the inside of the rear cover. As the instructions explain: "My eyes will move from left to right, Just shake me to and fro, And if you look at them at night, You'll find that they will glow". There is still a trace of luminescence. The seven dwarves are named Chatterbox, Stewy, Inquisitive, Busy, Cheery, Growly and Doctor, and each is accompanied with a verse.

COPAC lists three copies of this publication, at the British Library, Oxford and Trinity College Dublin. This is a very good copy with just a little dust soiling.
