Sold: DENSLOW’S TOM THUMB Book Dillingham 1st Edn 1903 W W Denslow Wizard of Oz


Out of stock


Here is another adorable book by Oz illustrator W. W. Denslow: Denslow’s Tom Thumb. Copyright 1903, this is the original first printing published by Dilliingham–the only one of the original series of 12 with a half-white cover. Fully illustrated with color and Denslow’s trademark seahorse signature on every page, as well as illustrated endpapers. Oversized softcover, decorated endpapers, 9″ by 11″.

In good plus condition, with some flaws as is normal with these fragile paper booklets. Complete, with moderate soiling to cover and a little surface loss at top corner as shown. Inside, stainnig to top of some of the pages, and the middle pages are detached from bottom staple, but well held by top one. Still attractive and creative in the Denslow tradition. Back has a medley of all of Denslow’s Picture Books, all now scarce except for the modern reprints.
