I never understood why this beautiful did not sell out immediately. My
highest recommendation! Anybody who does not yet own a copy: Sell your
family's porcelaine and get this!

I fear the status is this:

- No publisher is interested in reprinting the whole Gottfredson run
because it would be a financial desaster.
- Disney would not allow the reprint because many of these early strips
are not considered politically correct today.

But there has in fact been a complete reprint. You can find the whole,
exciting story about this project here:

The soon to be re-released "Mickey Mouse in Color" will definitely be
the same book you own: The original, 1st edition 1988 release, at its
original price (!), signed by Floyd Gottfredson and Carl Barks !!!

There also was a standard edition, which is sold out but can be found in
second-hand bookstores. 

You can find some more info here:
