Oddly, there are 11 color plates apparently as issued, which the Book Collector's Guide lists as occurring in 1931--but now we know, even earlier.

After some head scratching, I realized that one was "drawn by Relge E Knarf", a simple code for Frank E Egler. The others are unsigned but appear to be done by the same hand. The collection includes two different maps of the Marvelous Land of Oz based on the 1914 Tik-tok map and/or the 1932 Wonderland of Oz map, as well as two different The Continent of Imagination maps (Land of Oz and Surrounding Countries, one in color). In addition, there are separate hand-drawn maps based on the first 21 Oz books by both Baum and Thompson; these with the journeys the characters took included in red or dashed lines. Some have two different style maps for each book: Wizard (2), Land (2), Ozma (2), Dorothy (2), Road (2), Emerald City (2), Patchwork (2), Tik-tok, Scarecrow, Rinkitink, Lost Princess, Tin Woodman, Magic, Glinda, Royal Book, Kabumpo, Cowardly Lion, Lost King, Hungry Tiger, Gnome King, and Giant Horse. There is a lot of detail in most of the maps, best viewed close up and clearly drawn by someone very familiar with the classic Oz series. The maps are drawn on the backs of various types of paper, some reusing old letterhead, with a major tell that we have the right artist being one for Elger Bakery in New York. The largest map is about 17x22" unfolded, but is made of 4 smaller letterhead sheets taped together on the back. Most are about 8.5" x 14". In various conditions with some wear and tear and toning as shown. In addition, there is a stack of 24 small slips of paper with brief story ideas (apparently), the first three having to do with Oz. So Elger was not only a budding cartographer, but also hoped to write children's fiction.

The first International Wizard of Oz Club convention was held there in 1961 and later, the Ozmapolitan conventions until 1967, when Harry crossed the Shifting Sands. This letter is dated November 15, 1955 and is written to Mrs Alla T Ford, who was one of the 16 founding members of the International Wizard of Oz Club, as well as a serious collector and book seller. In Harry's letter, he discusses the possibility of purchasing one of Ford's books (The Musical Fantasies of L Frank Baum). However, "so far, guests have wanted to purchase only "Oz" books", but he goes on to say that perhaps if "we begin to get what my wife calls Oz-Maniacs", he may be interested in Ford's book. Apparently he's unaware at this time that there will be an International Wizard of Oz Club descending upon him the next summer! Harry also discusses various renovations being completed at the Lodge.

The letter to Julie Farr is on a sheet of Martin's notepaper ("A Note from Oz") with Tik-Tok, and the original mailing envelope hardwritten by Martin (postmarked 1971, Chicago). "I think that all cats like to climb Christmas trees." Guaranteed Oz-thentic!

The WoggleBug craze swept the country in response to an advertising campaign associated with the publication of The Marvelous Land of Oz in 1904. Newspapers ran a comic called "Queer Visitors From The Marvelous Land of Oz", where the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, the Woggle-Bug, the Sawhorse, Jack Pumpkinhead, and the Gump visit the United States of America. The stories ended with the question "What did the Woggle-Bug say?", and comic Wogglebug pinbacks were produced. In addition, L Frank Baum wrote a 1905 Woggle-bug book and a stageplay called The Woggle-bug that premiered in Milwaukee, WI and aired for a short time in Chicago in 1905.

Second, the earlier Broadway production of The Red Mill featured Stone and David Montgomery as the Tin Woodman. Victor Herbert wrote the original operetta and is also featured on one of the pages.

This book has all 8 color plates by Neill. (Note: The list of illustrations has 9 entries, with two related to the story in Chapter 9, but instead of using both illustrations as plates within that chapter, the one with the swans is used for the illustrated endpapers).

They also each have a two-page Marvelous Land of Oz map and other bonus features in the back. Both issues are labeled Vol 1, #1; I guess that's because they're special "Collector's" Issues. They adapt the story by L. Frank Baum, but the art seems to be based on the MGM character's features.

Hubbard was famous for his non-conventional views and behavior, and these floppy neckties were part of his eclectic persona. According to Roycroft expert Richard Blacher, he purchased the tie from Fred Landis about 40 years ago. Landis, who wrote the Roycroft book "Just a Dog", purchased the tie from "the original auction of the Roycroft Inn, including a ream of original Roycroft hallmarked paper, some of which were used as the limitation pages in On a High Shelf, a Scheidemantel poster, and your tie". Landis told Blacher it was one of Elbert's personal ties (my full email correspondence will be available to the buyer). The tie measures about 54" long x 14.5" wide and is in its original Adam, Meldrum & Anderson (a Buffalo department store) box. It has some fading and a few small holes, indicating it was actually worn.

These are quite hard to find and usually I sell them individually, but decided to sell the complete set. According to Postcard Collector magazine (1992), "The scarcity of these cards was created by the fact that a Teddy Bear stick pin was given away as a premium upon turning in a set of cards. The postcards were destroyed by the merchant as payment for the pin." Offered here are all four postcards shown: '"Is There Anything in It?"; "I'll See", "Why, it's Tedd Bear Bread" and "I'll Buy It!"With beautiful, classic Denslow illustrations and the trademark Denslow hippocampus (seahorse) signature!

Most beautiful, with two amazingly tooled and decorated internal doublures. The stunning leather design were obviously executed by an extremely skilled hand, possibly that of Roycrofter Louis Kinder. Like most Roycroft bindings, alas it is unsigned. The front and back cover have four gilt fuscias in the corners, and both inside doublures (shown in main photo) are decorated with an elaborate lacy gilt pattern on inset purple leather. Simply gorgeous. 5 1/4" x 8 1/4" x 1" thick, 120 numbered pages. The title page is dated 1899, but the book was probably bound slightly later (the ca. 1901 "Roycroft Wares" catalog advertises this book in full levant). Number 92 of a limited edition of 850, with Elbert Hubbard's signed name. Browne died in 1899 so this may have been his last, and likely most beautifully published, book.

Fournier was a Roycroft Art Director and already a trained painter when he came to join the Roycrofters in 1903. He and Elbert Hubbard were close and his painted murals decorate the Roycroft campus today. At least one of these photographs are by Fournier's son Paul, who was a trained photographer. The first two photos are loose and are about 4"x6". One shows Alexis in Venice in 1901, and the other is a more formal portrait that is inscribed "To my friend Mrs Ball from your sincere Alexis Jean Fournier". The other two photos are in Paul Fournier's portfolio which is on nice stock with his studio address in Buffalo stamped on front. The photos in the portfolio are a little larger than 4"x6" and tipped onto a ~ 10x12" sheet. One laid in is stamped Sweet Studios, and I think the signature could be "Sweet", but am not sure. The second photograph is of Elbert Hubbard II (Bert Hubbard} and is signed with Paul Fournier's initial logo.

This cabinet card (boarded photograph) of R C Hastings was photographed by W V Ranger at the Wieting Opera House in Syracuse, NY, with an engraved depiction of the Opera House on the back. Accoring to https://freethought-trail.org/trail-map/location:wieting-opera-house/, The Wieting Opera House was the site of the return engagement of L Frank Baum's musical The Maid of Arran in 1883. The card is undated, but cabinet cards were at peak popularity during the 1880s, so it's likely that Hastings was a contemporary of L Frank Baum. The Weiting burned down twice in 1881 and in 1896; the depiction definitely pre-dates the 1896 construction, but I'm not sure if it is of the pre- or post-1881 fire.

Also, this edition was dramatized by Elizabeth Fuller "Goodspeed" and later copies by Elizabeth Fuller "Chapman", presumably after she married. "By special arrangement with the owner, Mrs. L Frank Baum", and with much legalese on the back of the copyright page about what can and can't be done (no music!), royalties to be paid and such.

This book is discussed on p. 15 in the reference on Canadian Oz books, Oz in Canada: "In 1960, two new Copp Clark variants were inadvertently created when the original Canadian printing plates were used to print the title pages of new impressions of Glinda of Oz and The Cowardly Lion of Oz...It was thought for many years that only six copies of each of these two titles escaped being withdrawn, but collectors have discovered more."

Oz bibliographer and collector extraordinaire says he's never seen one with brown cloth, but "R&L does seem to have a pattern of throwing odd colored cloth in here and there."

The one page letter recaps a meeting with Amy where she apparently listened to him "patiently and sympathetically" and then says "but there is one thing about you I do not exactly lie, and that is that you are a handsome woman and still have brains". Also he vents a little about aspiring writers harrassing him: "manuscripts were flashed by wheely cranks at unexpected moments, and women with little things thrown off in an idle hour camped on my trail". Wonderfully personal and clearly written by Hubbard himself, the letter suggests that Hubbard found Amy attractive, at a time when he was still married to Bertha and already had a child with his mistress, Alice.

This is a departure from Martin's usual Oz related material, published by Reilly & Lee in 1962--the same time and in a similar format as several of his Oz picture books. The story is about a little boy who finds a dog and tries to find its owner.

It says "Don't scrap! Do unto others as you would be done by"--attributed to Ali Baba, Roycroft's erstwhile and well-loved handyman. The oversized motto is much larger than the common smaller ones--this one is about 8" x 10". Printed with the Roycroft and orb and cross watermark and with the intial hand illumined with scarlet and gilt. NOT a mass produced motto culled from a book like is often seen today! Also very unusual to find one with the exuberant Denslow initial, most have more pedestrian ones.

What makes this one special is that unlike the Guest books made for sale and taken to customer's homes, this book is actually the one from the Chopin room at the Roycroft Inn itself! It is packed full with comments from guests who stayed in the room between 1935 and 1947; based on the number of pages (about 140), I estimate it contains between 200 and 300 individual comments and signatures. I can only show you a small subset. This particular book from the later days of the Inn, well after Elbert Hubbard's death, often express dis-satisfaction with the inn, complaining about the noise, the smells, and even the rats! Some guests have written their own poetry.

This copy with hand-written pencil notes by Thompson related to the Jean Gros marionette show "The Magical Land of Oz" that toured starting in 1928. Thompson wrote the script for the show, and these notes appear to have been written ca. 1927, when the show was first being promoted.

What makes this copy special is that it has an original pen and ink and watercolor drawing in the front with a funky farmer captioned "Why Robert does not attend Church". At first I thought the drawing might be by Oz illustrator W W Denslow, as it has some elements of his design, the writing looks similar to his, and 1896 was the year he started working with the Roycrofters. However, the face doesn't look like his work and it's unsigned, which would be unlike him. Wish I knew more about this story, as the drawing does look to be by a professional illustrator. But anyway, I've held onto this book for a long time and have decided to let it go to another collector.

Neill illustrated 35 Oz books and also wrote some, yes...he was a prolific artist who illustrated for countless magazines and newspapers enumerated here, but...I learned a lot of new things as well. For example, did you know that Neill used his nieces as stand-ins for Dorothy and Ozma, and he often sketched characters in the nude to get the anatomy correct before filling in the details? Or that he and L. Frank Baum had an on again, off again relationship, with Baum not always approving of his interpretation of his stories? Or that he illustrated not only anonymously, but under several pseudonyms? A classic for Oz fans. A beautifully done tribute to a well-loved man. Issue also contains 2 articles on Harvey T. Dunn and his nude paintings.

The book was issued with 6 Waddle characters that when assembled with the clips, waddled down the Yellow Brick Road. Here is one of them, The Scarecrow, who is original except for a replacement joint and one leg. The waddles were reproduced by Applewood Books in 1993, and I have carefully compared the cardstock and details of this waddle to those, and am sure this is mostly the older, original one. Specific differences include that the original waddles had a matte finish while the reproductions were glossy, the Scarecrow's rear hand has six fingers in the originals and is more like a fist in the reproductions, and there are also small differences in the slots and printing of lines and dots. The original metal clips were brass colored, while they are black plastic in the reproductions, which is why I know that this guy has the replacement joint and leg. I've also handled original waddles before and made this Youtube video comparing that set to the reproductions.

This book contains plates from that version of the Wizard, backed with a strange and abridged version of the story by Thos. H Russell which only refers to Dorothy as "The Little Girl".

The exhibit included huge statues of the Wizard of Oz Scarecrow (Strawman) and Tin Woodman, which are included in the photo. The photo is apparently of a model of the planned exhibit--an "Artist's Conception" by H K Dieg (Delineator) and G H Buckley (Architect). This artist's conception was also used on postcards sold at the fair, and the earliest ones carry the artist's misspelling "Resturant"! The synopsis says that Enhanted Island "intends to open May first, one moth prior to the official opening of the Fair", and also mentions the "straw man" and a twenty feet high Tin Woodman. Also discussed are the Jean Gros Marionettes and theatre, where Oz-related entertainment was held.

Copyright 1918 by Reilly & Britton, this is a ca. 1919 Reilly & Lee printing with the first R&L dust jacket per Bibliographia Baumiana-- with the flying birds and the last book listed on the jacket flap is Mary Louise Adopts a Soldier, the title from 1919. Later jackets utilized a new graphic design.

On one side, a fan has asked if it's true that Over the Rainbow was almost cut from the film, and if he likes disco. Harburg flipped the note over and replied that it's true--"the director Mr Fleming too wanted it out" and that "I don't care for disco". He has also hand written the return envelope to Mr Melvin Cagle. The note measures about 4"x6" and is in very good condition (folded once). Harburg letters with Wizard of Oz content are hard to find and quite prized.

Written by "Amber", who was Denslow's mother-in-law for a while. Both are unsigned, but the book is listed as a cover he did in Greene & Hearn's book checklist, and the tan one is definitely attributed to Denslow. Denslow designed many of the Rand McNally book covers during the 1986-1898 period, some signed, some not. So, for the Denslow completist collector.

It also has "65% to 5x6 1/2" written on the back in Dick's writing, so I'm sure the pencilled-in water is done by Dick as well. This is from David Greene's collection, and he and Dick worked together on a lot of Oz Club projects, so I'm wondering if this is something that was the prototype for a convention card or souvenir.

Alice had a complicated birth with Carroll (Dodgeson) and Tenniel unhappy with the quality of the first pressing in Oxford in 1865, so those sheets were retracted. The 1866 MacMillan edition is thus generally considered the first British edition and this, the 1869 Lee and Shepard edition the first American edition.

In about 1959, just eleven of the Oz books were issued in special dust jackets designed by Roland Roycraft. These were only in production for a few years before being replaced by the "white cover" editions without dust jackets, which are more common. In the case of The Wizard, the odd Roycraft jacket was in production for even less time before being replaced by a jacket by Dick Martin in 1960. Thus its rarity. The book was written by L Frank Baum and published by Reilly & Lee; this version copyright 1956. Green cloth and red illustrations by Dale Ulrey; jacket lists to Hidden Valley of Oz, as do all the Roycraft jackets. The illustrations by Ulrey are also very nice, with the Wizard in different poses inside the initials at the chapter headings.

Denslow, the talented artist who illustrated the true first edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Denslow was already an accomplished poster and book illustrator when he partnered with Baum in the late 1890s. This elaborate pen and ink drawing from the 1884 book "Twenty Years on the Road" is one of his earliest pieces of surviving original art. This humorous scene of a man wooing a young woman and confronted with the father was used as one of the larger illustrations in the book. Shown in one of the photos is the illustrated book page, as obtained from the New York Public Library. The piece is also nice as it shows not only Denslow's fine line art but his method, as the initial drawing is sketched in a faint underlying blue line. It shows that he modified the style of the lettering in his final version. I believe the penciled "Move Effect" and the word "Mortice" (recess to make room for the text) in the top sky are probably in Denslow's own hand. The piece is also signed “W* D *L”—one of the signatures he used during this period (the L probably standing for his partner Charles Lemon). "Reduce 1/2" is also marked in pencil on the bottom, denoting the reduction size for final print. Den was only 28 when he drew this and while fame had not yet caught him, he had already worked successfully in advertising, newspaper and trade card design.

Denslow's original work spawned many imitators. The Garman cover redraws the Denslow art with slight alterations--but the main image is preserved, right down to the yellow and red polka dot skirt! The shape book is about 11" tall, patent 1907, copyright 1912 by R. H. Garman, published by Ideal Book Builders (Chicago). I believe this is a 2nd printing, as it has 10 Mar 1914 befow the patent date that was not in a previous version of this book that I had. Also, it has a red cloth strip spine and the colors on the cover are more muted (closer to the original ones in Denslow's Mother Goose, actually). In addition to the goose covers (front and back), there are 8 internal pages, some with attached cutouts that can be flipped to change the images. Very elaborate design. The book is in good plus condition, with a small closed tear base of rear cover, and inner pages detached from stapled binding. The internal page art is in good condition for the most part, with glue repair to one cutout, one edge fold, and one cutout seems to be  missing. (Denslow's Mother Goose book shown in first image for illustration purposed not included.)

This was original a blank book that was used for autographs, poetry or scrapbook by the cusomer, so each one is unique. Not in Ogle or McKenna, but listed in a 1920s Roycroft catalog as "Uniform with Guest Book, $3.00". This copy especially poignant, as it describes (among other things), a long hand-printed Prince Charming story (I think a metaphor for their son/family), plus it is also a memorial volume to family member Charles Edmund Potholm who died--"he lay his life down for his brother". With 38 pasted in family photos and some clippings. Dates 1928-1933. Some Danish in back as well.

The strip was written by Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum, illustrated by Walt MacDougall, and serialized from August 28, 1904 to February 26, 1905. It tells of Oz characters on a tour of the United States used to publicize The Marvelous Land of Oz book of 1904. These are printed on glossy stock and are slightly smaller than the originals. I believe they were used to print the comics for issues of the Baum Bugle, as they are from the collection of Bugle editor David Greene and have his note on one: "Have we used this yet? No". There are two sizes, 14x19" (Sept 18, Oct 2, Oct 23 1904) and 11x17" (Nov 20, Dec 18, Dec 25 1904). I didn't search through all the Bugles to find these particular episodes, but I know that some Queers Visitors were used for the centerfolds. An interesting lot of Oziana and Bugle history.

Denslow, the talented artist who illustrated the true first edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Denslow was already an accomplished poster and book illustrator when he partnered with Baum in the late 1890s. This pen and ink drawing from the 1884 book "Twenty Years on the Road" is one of his earliest pieces of surviving original art. This charming scene of a traveling salesman leaving his young wife and child was used as the headpiece for the beginning of the book, as shown in the photo that I obtained from the New York Public Library. The piece is also nice as it shows not only Denslow's fine line art but his method, as the initial drawing is sketched in a faint underlying blue line. It shows that he modified the style of the lettering in his final version. "1/3" is marked in pencil on the side, denoting the reduction size for final print. Den was only 28 when he drew this and while fame had not yet caught him, he had already worked successfully in advertising, newspaper and trade card design.

Fred Hamlin, who produced The Wizard of Oz 1902 stageplay, was the son of John A Hamlin, a magician/showman who sold the patent medicine "Hamlin's Wizard Oil". Profits from the "medicine", which contained alcohol, herbs and turpentine, were used to fund Chicago's Grand Opera House (where the Oz musical was first shown). L. Frank Baum worked with Fred Hamlin on the script, although the men didn't always see eye to eye. This is a large card, 4-7/8" x 6 1/2", and in my opinion the most attractive of all the Wizard Oil advertising. The color image shows two men in Arabic dress with a camel loaded with crates of HAMLIN'S WIZARD OIL. The background pyramid in background proclaims that Wizard Oil Cures Rheumatism, Neuralgia and ALL PAIN. The Calvert Litho. Co, Detroit.

Chrome Yellow is a departure from Baum's fantasy stories, about two men in the orange groves of California with a surprise ending. The Bugle says of The Littlest Giant that it is "not one of Baum's best tales, for its humor does not combine successfully with the savagery of the events. But it is imaginative..."

This is an early UK edition published by Chatto & Windus in Picadilly, London (1881). With six illustrations by Wizard of Oz illustrator W W Denslow in chapter 47. The frontispiece,“TITIAN’S MOSES” is a fun poke at fine art, with baby Moses holding a spoon and plate with a frog and crying. According to TwainQuotes.com, "It is a thing which I manufactured by pasting a popular comic picture into the middle of a celebrated Biblical one." Interestingly, this comic image pops up again in one of the Roycroft books from the period that Denslow was guiding the illuminators: http://roycroftbooks.org/book_job_modiano.htm. So, he definitely was aware of this image, but his artistic involvement in Titian's Moses is unclear. (Original engraving itself is by Pannemaker.) Denslow's illustrations in Chapter 47 are signed with his initials W W D (way before his seahorse monogram.) Also many B&W images by other artists--314 illustrations and 561 pages total, including a Chatto & Windus book catalog bound in the rear. Most of the illustrations were dropped in later editions, circa 1899.

Great vintage ads as well. This is the first program I've been able to offer for this production over a period of many years, and I specialize in Denslow. In good condition with chip at lower corner, detached but included if you want to repair, moderate edge wear, stapled binding still intact. A rare survivor!

Stone's career was relatively long and this is from a 1920's play, Criss-Cross, of which the JacksonNupperCo website says: "This might as well be called the second edition of The Stepping Stones, for once again Kern paired with Anne Caldwell to craft a score for a lavishly mounted Dillingham production starring Broadway legend Fred Stone and his daughter Dorothy...The globe-trotting story was little else than a means for shtick and extravagance, but the production was well received and had a nice healthy run." I'm not sure whether the Charles Dillingham play producer here is related to the Dillingham publisher who handled some of W W Denslow's books.

L. Frank Baum was a theatre aficionado and wrote the play after the great success of his book in 1900. Composer Paul Tietjens wrote much of the music. Heavily modified from Baum's original work, the play premiered at the Grand Opera House in Chicago. Very successful, by 1903, it had moved to the Majestic Theatre on Broadway. This program is from the Majestic the week of August 3rd, 1903.

Denslow created a Billy Bounce comic strip just after he illustrated the Wizard of Oz in 1899/1900. He published Billy Bounce strips between 1901 and 1902, after which the comic was taken over by another illustrator, C W Kahles. The box has a 1901 tax stamp on the top, so it's possibly the artwork was done by Denslow, but as it is unsigned it could be another illustrator after Denslow as well. The box has Billy Bounce smoking a cigar etched into the top, a side label and inner label with Billy Bounce and his pals Fuzzy White the Bear and the Pieman. The first image shows the inner label with the best graphics. Label says "John Hoffmann & Sons Company", Litho Geo. Schlegel, NY. Cigars were Americanos.

Moser created 62 woodcut designs for his unique version of The Wizard of Oz, which was hand-printed in five colors and published by The Pennyroyal Press in a limited edition of 350 copies. It was originally published in 1985 and sold for $1,000. Later, in cooperation with Pennyroyal, the University of California Press published a trade edition. From what I can find, this booklet, also published by Pennyroyal Press in 1985, was produced to sell with the limited edition. But, if you have the trade edition, it would be nice to put with that as well. The booklet is 28 pages and describes in Moser's words how he created his iconic figures, some of which are modeled on real people as diverse as Judy Garland and Nancy Reagan.

Interesting is that is offers bonuses of a Fra Elbertus and Roycroft Horseman pictures free with the Christmas issue. I believe this is from a Roycroft catalog or magazine from 1908, as that is the year the Christmas issue with Gaspard's Jesus cover (as described in the ad) was published.

The earlier Nelebel's Fairyland, published by the Pamami Press in 1978, was the first separate edition of this story written by L. Frank Baum in 1905.  That is now one of the most rare of the Press’s publications because the majority of the edition was bought by a book dealer and never distributed. When Riley was recently offered access to the original typescript of the story (which differs in some respects from the printed versions), he took the opportunity to publish a new and better edition of this charming fairy tale, just as Baum had originally written it.

"My Lily of the Nile--as introduced and featured by Anna Laughlin", who played Dorothy in the musical. Copyright 1902, words by James O'dea and music by Robt. J. Adams, publisher Sol Bloom. The cover has an inset photo of Laughlin in a costume with a striped hat--I can find other images of her in a striped hat in the Wizard of Oz, but not THIS striped hat, so not sure if this is an image from the Wizard of Oz play or not. "Sammy", a known Oz play song, also written by James O'dea, is included on the back--labelled "Grace Kimbell's (sic) big hit in The Wizard of Oz Co." Grace played Trixie Tryfle, another female character in the Oz play, early on, before being replaced by Lotta Faust. One of the lesser known Oz songs, I did find "My Lily of the Nile" mentioned in a Sept 1902 newspaper ad about the play's music.
