Sold: ANNABEL Book L Frank Baum (Suzanne Metcalf) 1912 2nd Edition Oz


Out of stock


Here’s one of L Frank Baum’s books that he wrote under the Suzanne Metcalf pseudonym: Annabel. 2nd edition by Reilly & Britton (1912); name misspelled Susanne on cover. Rare book in either edition by the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This one with a beautiful front cover illustration and 3 B&W plates (as issued) by Joseph Pierre Nuyttens.

In good to very good condition with excellent front cover, clean spine with light end wear, light soiling and a little wrinkling to rear cover. Front hinge cracked with possible glue repair, some abrasion and bookseller’s pencil notation to front endpaper, binding tight. One page with edge and corner tears, see photo. Other pages and all three plates in very good condition. Overall a decent copy of this hard to find Baum title.
