Sold: DENSLOW’S BIG CIRCUS BOOK c. 1903 Oz Illustrator Book Donohue Elephant Cover


Out of stock


Here is a fun book not only illustrated, but also written by Wizard of Oz artist W. W. Denslow: Denslow’s One-Ring Circus. Copyright 1903, undated but published by Donohue and Co. so printed slightly later. Fully illustrated with color and Denslow’s trademark seahorse signature on every page, as well as illustrated endpapers. Oversized softcover, 12 pages.

Book is only in fair to good condition. Cover graphics are nice but there is corner chipping and the spine is starting to detach, only about 1/3 of the cover still attached, and the rear cover has some tearing along the spine also. Age toning. Inside is complete, but the first page is loosening with a smalll edge tear. Other pages are in good condition with corner bumping. Please examine photos. Not a perfect copy by any means, but priced accordingly and a must for the Denslow collector!
