First edition statement from publisher, precedes page 1: From The Inner Sanctum of Simon and Schuster. This is a first edition copy of Bambi. A thousand copies have been printed and bound. None are for sale. The Inner Sanctum thinks that Bambi will ultimately have a large sale, and hopes that a copy of this copy will not only be pleasant to read, but of possible increased value at a future time. Originally published in Austria in 1923, Bambi was adapted by Disney into the hugely popular film of the same name. The novel was well received by critics and is considered a classic, as well as one of the first environmental novels ever published.
