RCA Victor Little Nipper "Peter and the Wolf"

Here is a great looking old 78 RPM Little Nipper Story Book Album featuring Prokofieff's Peter and the Wolf from Walt Disney's "Make Mine Music", narrated by Sterling Holloway. The set it from 1949, and features 20 pages of illustrated story pages as well as 2 "non-breakable" records.
I picked it up at a local thrift shop for $4. I also recently purchased an Ion TTUSB10 Turntable which hooks up directly to my Mac via USB. And using the included Audacity software, you can record old 78 RPM LPs at 33 RPM and then use the software to correct the sound. Once I get the time, I am looking forward to adding a bunch of my old 78's to my iTunes collection.

My mother has such fond memories of this. Would you like to sell it?
