Description

Here is a great old copy of The Gnome King of Oz by Ruth Plumly Thompson. A first edition (there was only one printing of the 1st edition) with 12 color plates by John R. Neill, published by Reilly & Lee in 1927. Illustrated endpapers also.

Book condition is good plus, with some rubbing to front pastedown, and a little splitting starting at spine ends, but still an attractive exterior. Inside, front hinge has been repaired not so neatly, rear hinge is cracked with mull (webbing) showing. Endpapers have age toning, but pages otherwise in excellent condition without significant writing or tears. Book Belongs To page is blank. All 12 color plates present and in near find condition overall. A hard to find Thompson 1st!
