Wonderful rare advertising booklet written by Oz author Ruth Plumly Thompson for Colgate “ribbon dental cream”–I guess that’s what they used to call toothpaste? This tiny rare booklet is a super rare and iconic Thompson item–way harder to find that the advertising booklets she did for Royal Baking Powder. Just 12 pages, about 4″x5″, but lovely printing with full color illustrations throughout by SK. Undated. Subtitled “The Story of a Little Boy and Girl Who Forgot Something”. Thompson packs a lot into this little book–a witch, a knight, a bear, gnomes, and two children lost in a forest. In near fine condition, a fabulous little gem for the completist collector.
