Merry Christmas - One Hour in Wonderland Copyright Book

Merry Christmas!  A real treat today, something I only just discovered in the past few months.  The copyright book for Walt Disney's One Hour in Wonderland: A Christmas Television Show.
Who knew this existed?  These copyright books turn up occasionally for the feature films.  Their intent, I believe (and please correct me if I'm wrong) was to publish prior to release in order to secure copyright.  Usually these copyright books are pretty big, softcover stapled pages with a taped binding (like this one), and consists of the full script of the film with some stills thrown in to illustrate the story.
This is just like that except it is FAR shorter, and is only the script - no illustrations or photos of any kind - probably because they hadn't filmed it yet when they produced this (speculation on my part since the TV magazines had publicity photos available to them prior to their publication).

I am under the impression that these books were printed in extremely tiny quantities, like maybe fewer than 100.  As this is the first one for One Hour in Wonderland I've ever seen, I'd say that was probably the case.
