Here’s a peculiar version of one of L Frank Baum’s more charming stories that was first published as “A Kidnapped Santa Claus” in the Delineator magazine in 1904, and later published as its own book in 1969. This version was published as a short story called “Kidnaping Santa Claus” in the anthology “Little Folks’ Christmas Stories and Plays” by Rand McNally, edited by Ada Skinner, copyright 1915, 1925.
In good condition, nice cover illustration by Margaret Evans Price with some scuffing, some spotting to spine and rear, corners soft. Inside, writings and toning and small hole on front endpaper, text block cracked at title page, other minor flaws. Baum’s Kidnaping story on p. 203-220 in nice condition. For the Baum completist!
