Another unusual item by Wizard of Oz illustrator W. W. Denslow: Denslow’s A B C Book. Copyright 1903, this is the original first printing published by Dillingham. Fully illustrated with color and Denslow’s trademark seahorse signature on every page, as well as illustrated endpapers. Adorable animals in this book, along with a page featuring the Scarecrow and Tin-man! Oversized fragile softcover, 8 pages plus covers (decorated inside), 9″ by 11″. Back cover has a medley of all of Denslow’s Picture Books, all hard to find.
One of my “Wild and Homeless” items that’s looking for a non-judgmental home. In fair to good condition; the main issue is that the book has been embellished with a ribbon just beside the spine. See photos. The front cover has former owner’s name signed and loss to paper at the corners, rear cover is better, Interior pages in very good condition other than the binding issue. Priced accordingly. Still attractive.
