Bambi

By Salten, Felix




Immerse yourself in a young deerâÈçs world in this resplendent, collectible edition of the richly imagined and vividly illustrated masterpiece that inspired the beloved Disney film.

Bambi lives in a thicket in the forest. From his kind and caring mother, to all the friends he makes among the forestâÈçs inhabitants, to his twin cousins Faline and Gobo, he is surrounded by animals who wish him well. But there are dangers within and surrounding the forest, and all too soon they will make themselves known.

A beautifully written and critically acclaimed classic that has been translated into more than twenty languages and inspired one of the most beloved Disney films of all time, Bambi is an emotionally wrought exploration of family that also serves as a powerful allegory of modern times.

This keepsake edition showcases luminous oil-painting illustrations by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher and features a soft touch cover, gold foiling, and tip-in artwork.

Bambi: A Life in the Woods.

Salten, Felix

New York:: Simon and Schuster, 1928. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth, pictorial endpapers. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Also laid in is the original leaflet from publication about the author and the inside story of Bambi's publication. Foreword by John Galsworthy. Translated from the German by Whittaker Chambers. A very attractive example of this work. "Using the pseudonym Felix Salten, journalist Siegmund Salzmann wrote several anthropomorphic animal tales, including the novel Bambi This story of life in the forest is written with integrity, emotion and great skill Bambi remains [Salten’s] best-known work, and it is a classic in the genre of animal stories" (Silvey, 571-72). Walt Disney famously adapted the book to the screen in his 1942 animated film.

Bambi

Salten, Felix (translated by Whittaker Chambers)

One of one thousand copies of an advance edition apparently issued without a dustjacket. Notation about the edition on the page facing page 1. Basis for the Disney film. Translated by one of the principals in the Alger Hiss scandal. A tight clean copy with minimal bumping of the corners and spine. Page edges slightly dirty, gold on spine somewhat faded. Still, an excellent copy of this scarce issue which the publishers said they would always prefer to the trade edition. Scarce.
