A presentation book of original Mickey Mouse production drawings has sold from the collection of Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak.
The sale took place on July 17 at Hake's, with the book one of the top lots at $13,775. Sendak was a lifelong collector of Disneyana (the term for Disney memorabilia) and amassed one of the finest collections in the world.
The book contains 10 vinyl sleeves, each containing a drawing on animation paper. The insert page reads: "Mickey Mouse - Presented to Maurice Sendak by the Walt Disney Company - 1988".
The drawings are from some of Mickey's earliest appearances with Pluto, Minnie and Goofy.
