The Black Hole: A Pop Up Book

Here is a really nice copy of Walt Disney Studio's The Black Hole, A Pop-Up Book I found recently. The book is from 1979, and the cover price was $4.95. It is in really great shape considering that most kids pop up books are trashed within a day or two of the kid reading and playing with it. I know this from experience, as my 2 year old son has most of the flaps etc torn off in a matter of minutes! This copy has only one scene with a ripped part, and even then, all the pieces are there, and with a little tape, I was able to reconstruct the Black Hole on the last page of the book, good as new.
Here you can see the cover of the book, along with the first two pages of the book, which feature a great pop up of the U.S.S. Cygnus, the huge mystery ship which is hovering on the edge of a giant Black Hole at the beginning of the movie.
