Sold: The DARING TWINS Book L. Frank Baum Reilly and Britton 1st Edn Wizard of Oz VG

$115.00 $100.00


Here is a lesser known book by L. Frank Baum, author of the Wizard of Oz. The Daring Twins was published in 1911 by Reilly & Britton, the first of a series of two books that includes also Phoebe Daring. This is a first edition in the first (A) binding with blue cloth (Book Collector’s Guide to L. Frank Baum). The series wasn’t very popular and so these titles are rather hard to find.

With 317 pages and 4 inserted black and white plates by Pauline Batchelder.

The book is in very good condition, with nice cover and spine, and light edgewear and slight soiling to rear cover.  Inside, the front hinge is lightly cracked and the binding is solid. Prior owner’s name on the endpaper; pages have light soiling, generally quite good, and the four B&W plates by Pauline Bathelder are present and in very good condition. One is pretty creepy.
