hi
I came across this book at an auction and when i did further digging i became aware of the rarity of this book do to the usage of the "N"word in many places.Apparently walt disney when finding out about the language threatened the publisher with a lawsuit and they stopped printing the book.Some got out but are rare to find.this was an estate sale so it must have been sitting in a house for 70-80 years.What am i suppose to do with it.One was sold in England in 2003 for $54,000.00?
HELP

    There is one on eBay now, languishing with a BIN of $2500.

    I think the seller was asking that price back in 2003. I wonder if he ever got it? And if so, then what would the next buyer be willing to pay? Maybe you will get lucky!

    are you sure this is the real book and not just a reproduction. you might want to find that out first before selling it. thanks for sharing.

    It was printed in 1933 which makes it the 1932 edition including the "N"words being used many times.There was no reproduction that I know cause it was banned by Walt Disney from publication under the threght of a lawsuit.

    i would say you yourself enjoy the book! but if you go to sell it i would say get it appraised by a reputable source to guarentee authenticity. some one may have created a fake book in order to fool people. thanks for sharing it is a great book!
