SNUGGLE TALES THE MAGIC CLOAK L Frank Baum Oz Book 1916 Reilly Britton 1st Edn 2nd Print


In stock


Here’s a rare L. Frank Baum book: Baum’s Snuggle Tales: The Magic Cloak, published as a series of 4 books by Reilly & Britton in 1916. This is a first edition, second printing with 6 stories listed on the verso of the ownership page (circa 1917; Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum). These books were later called “The Oz-Man Tales” in the Reilly & Lee editions. This book alas, is missing the color frontispiece and is priced accordingly. With B&W illustrations by John R Neill.

Book is in good condition, particularly for this notoriously fragile production in paper covered boards. Some flaking to the spine, boards exposed at corners; cover art still quite nice.  Small, neat glue repair to endpaper, Book Belongs To space with 1917 inscription, a few stains, one illustration with some yellow crayon, frontis missing as mentioned.
