Sold: DOROTHY & THE WIZARD IN OZ Book L Frank Baum 1920s 16 Color Plates


Out of stock


Here is a nice early printing of “Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz”, fourth of the Oz books written by L Frank Baum. Copyright 1908, this is an edition from about 1927-1930 with 16 incredible color plates by John R Neill. The dating is based on no list of titles on back of ownership page (Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum). This is the version of the cover with a yellow background and Dorothy still present. Nice illustrated endpapers as well.

The book is in very good or better condition, with a beautiful clean cover plate, spine and rear cover. Inside is very good also, with a tight binding, pencil markings to top of endpaper, inscription on ownership page, and age toning to pages. This book is one of the few Oz books issued with 16 instead of 12 color plates, with all 16 present in this copy and in nice condition. Overall a very nice early copy.
