Sold: Timothy’s Magical Afternoon John R Neill Oz Altemus Fairy Tale Book Tudor Jenks 1905


Out of stock


Here is Timothy’s Magical Afternoon, a fairy tale book of the rare Magic Wand Series illustrated by John R. Neill of Wizard of Oz fame. Illustrated endpapers, red illustrations and embellishments. Hardcover (small 4.5 x 6″), charmingly penned by Tudor Jenks. Published by Henry Altemus Co, copyright 1905. See for more info about this series. Timothy’s is one of the hardest in the series to find, especially in good condition.

This book has a nice cover with a little staining near top, clean spine and rear cover. Inside, the hinges are unsplit and the pages are clean, but the binding is loosening and the center gathering of 16 pages is completely loose from the binding. See photos I love Neill’s drawing of the cats with the magic wands in the 7th photo.
