Description

Here is a great little miniature map printed from the endpapers of Who’s Who in Oz. I purchased several of these from the Fred Meyer collection. Bibliographia Oziana says about this map as a Who’s Who footnote: “The endpaper design, a map of Oz and surrounding countries, was reprinted, ca. 1954, in reduced size in brown on tan card-stock. The back is blank.” 

Printed in sepia on cream. Just 4 1/4″ by 6″. Appears to be an exact replica of the Who’s Who endpapers, which are based on the endpaper design of Tik-Tok of Oz. In fine condition.

These came in an old mailing envelope from “Ziff-Davis Publishing Company” in Chicago to Fred Meyer, with a code above the address that seems to include the mailing date–5-21-56. Since Reilly & Lee was based in Chicago, I assume that they had these printed as part of the promotion for Who’s Who. Beware of reproductions! This piece guaranteed original.
