Here’s Annabel, one of L Frank Baum’s books that he wrote under the Suzanne Metcalf pseudonym. This is the 1st edition, 2nd printing by Reilly & Britton (copyright 1906 and published prior to 1912); the 2nd printing was bound in Binding C which has the publisher’s name on the spine in upper and lower-case letters (Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum). Annabel is a rare book in any early edition by the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. With 6 B&W plates (as issued) by Joseph Pierre Nuyttens.
In good condition with fading to spine lettering, wear to cloth corners and a little fraying starting at spine ends. Inside, the binding is a little floppy but holding, hinges intact, all 6 plates present but two are detached and laid in (also small tear to frontispiece). Pages with light soiling but no major flaws. Overall a decent copy of this hard to find Baum title.
