(Holt, 1957) A very rare first edition hardcover of "The Story of Walt Disney" that is signed by Walt Disney. The 247-page biography was authored by Walt's daughter, Diana Disney Miller, and contains 16 pages of photographs from Walt's life which were either seldom or never published at the time of its release. This impressive book is signed by Walt Disney in green ink with the note "Best Wishes." The book comes from the collection of esteemed Disney historian and Walt Disney autograph expert, Phil Sears. Included with the autograph is a Phil Sears signed Certificate of Authenticity. Measuring approximately 8.5"x6" and 1.25" thick, the book is in fair condition overall with some yellowing to the page edges. The dust jacket has small chips and wear, particularly around the edges, and the original owner has made a few small notes on the first interior page.
