FIRST EDITION OF POPEYE WITH THE HAG OF THE SEVEN SEAS, WITH THREE ELABORATE COLOR POP-UPS FEATURING POPEYE AND HIS SPINACH, OLIVE OYL, AND THE HAG

SEGAR, E.C. Popeye with the Hag of the Seven Seas. Chicago: Pleasure, (1935). Quarto, original pictorial paper boards. $950.

First edition of this early pop-up book starring Popeye, one of the scarcest of the comic pop-ups, featuring three bright, double-page pop-ups.

"American cartoonist Elzie Crisler Segar developed Thimble Theater, a series featuring Olive Oyl, Caster Oyl, and (later) Popeye, for the New York Journal in 1919. This beautifully illustrated pop-up book is one of several published by Pleasure Books in the 1930s that were inspired by comic strips" (Cooper Hewitt). Montanaro, 233. Published later the same year in a Blue Ribbon Press edition.

Interior generally quite nice, rear pop-up creased and taped at center split but fully functional, boards unusually nice. A near-fine copy.
