Here is your choice of one original color plates from one of the rarest children’s books illustrated by W W Denslow–The Jeweled Toad. These are from the 1st edition, written by Isabel M Johnston and published in 1907 by Bobbs-Merrill who also published The Wizard of Oz during this period. While it contained clever in-text illustrations and 12 stunning color plates by Denslow, the book never really caught on and hence is scarce. The book is fragile in paper-covered boards and often the plates fall out or are removed, so I’ve recently acquired a sad copy (missing title page), but with 8 color plates remaining that I’m offering to my customers so you can complete your incomplete copies. $12 each. These are those opposite page
Plates are in generally very good to excellent condition, a few with light edge wear or soiling. See photos. Please specify which plate you need in the Order Notes box at bottom of Checkout.
