A 1st edition, 1st printing of Aunt Jane’s Nieces on Vacation, seventh of the series for girls written by L. Frank Baum (Wizard of Oz author) under the Edith Van Dyne pseudonym. Copyright 1912, Reilly & Britton. Oval color illustration on cover. Front endpaper lists to the series titles ending with this one, making it a 1st printing according to the Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum. Since these books were reprinted many times by Reilly & Britton and then later Reilly & Lee, it’s rather unusual to find the true 1st printing. Book is very good condition, with a clean and whole cover illustration, light spine soiling, hinges solid, prior owner’s name & address and bookseller’s notation on front endpaper, frontis great, pages clean. A quite nice copy overall.
