Description

Here is another adorable book by Oz illustrator W. W. Denslow: Denslow’s House that Jack Built. Copyright 1903, this is the 2nd printing published by Dillingham in 1904 with a light background color. Reprinted later by Donohue in slightly larger format, and even later by modern publishers.
Fully illustrated with color and Denslow’s trademark seahorse signature on every page, as well as illustrated endpapers. One of my favorites due to the profusion of goofy animals Denslow has included. And, as a bonus, a Wizard of Oz Scarecrow in the farmer’s cornfield! Oversized softcover, 9″ by 11″.

This series is hard to find in decent condition as they were loved to death, and this one is no exception–heavy wear and soiling to cover, about 1/2″ split to base of spine, though interior is better with intact stapled binding and light wear and toning.
