(Disney, 1913/1960s) A rare copy of “The Boy Mechanic” published in 1913. When Rolly Crump and Yale Gracey were working on the early stages of the “Haunted Mansion”, they used a copy of this book to learn about the “Pepper’s Ghost” effect which was used to create the Ballroom scene in the Mansion, as well as the illusion of the ghosts who appear in your Doombuggy with you. This book comes from Rolly Crump’s personal collection and measures 10”x7” and 1.75” thick. The condition is good with expected wear from age.
