Here is another wonderful item illustrated by WW Denslow of Wizard of Oz fame: Around the World in a Berry Wagon. Copyright 1909, this promotional booklet for Berry Brothers Varnish manufacturers is beautifully lithographed on every other page with full color, detailed Denslow illustrations. Unnumbered, about 50 plus pages. Marketed as a fun, educational trip around the world, with racial images and language typical of the era. First state with “Largest Varnish Manufacturers in the World” on rear cover and more subtle coloring to illustrations that the presumably later publication,
Booklet is in very good condition overall, some light soilig and age toning to front cover, but rear cover and pages in excellent condition. A lovely and rare Denslow collectible.
