Description

Here is an early edition of the Royal Book of Oz, copyright 1921 by Reilly & Lee. This is an post-1935 printing with black and white illustrations by John R Neill. Green cloth, pictorial endpapers.  First Oz book written by Ruth Plumly Thompson!

Condition is very good. The exterior pastedown looks great, spine looks great, light wear to cloth edges and corner bumping. Inside, the endpapers are in good shape (bookseller’s old pencil price), front hinge intact, rear hinge cracked but holding, binding is tight. Prior owner’s name on ownership page with gift inscription opposite. Text pages are in very good condition, clean with no marks, tears or writing noted. A nice copy of one of the more desirable Oz titles.
