Sold: Denslow’s Night Before Christmas Oz Tin-man Toy & Picture Book Treasury Hearn Intro


Out of stock


Here are two nice hardcover reprints of Denslow’s Night Before Christmas and Denslow’s Picture Book Treasury. Both have dust jackets, illustrated endpapers and are the full original sizes, and both have many incredible and clever full-page color illustrations by Denslow, each signed with the seahorse and “DEN”. Night Before Christmas (Mayflower Books, New York) has images with famous Baum/Denslow characters as toys in Santa’s bag: the Tin Woodman of Oz and Denslow’s Mother Goose! Picture Book Treasury is by Arcade Books (New York), 1990 first printing and has a 3-page introduction by Oz scholar Michael Patrick Hearn.

Both books are very good plus with tight hinges but no writing or tears. Picture Book Treasury has a remainder mark on the bottom, and the dust jacket for Night Before Christmas is scuffed and shelf worn.
