Description

Here is an unusual Wizard of Oz map! This B&W “Land of Oz” map is similar to that used for a coloring contest by Oz book publishers Reilly & Lee, circa 1927 (see the The Wizard of Oz Collector’s Treasury p. 197). Based on the color map endpapers originally used in the Tik-tok of Oz book in 1914, it features the Emerald City in the center, with surrounding Oz regions. Legend says “Map of the Marvelous Land of Oz/ Drawn by Prof. Wogglebug T. E.” On the back is “Map of the Countries Near to the Land of Oz”, which includes the bordering countries. Size is 10″ x 15″. The map was also used as a promotional item by Reilly & Lee and Ruth Plumly Thompson.

This map is usually found folded, but this one is still flat, and has two corner chips and one small edge tear. Will be shipped flat.
