Sold: CURIOUS CRUISE of CAPTAIN SANTA Ruth Plumly Thompson Oz 1985 HC/DJ


Out of stock


Here is a nice facsimile edition of Ruth Plumly Thompson’s original “The Curious Cruise of Captain Santa”. Of course Thompson wrote many Oz books after L. Frank Baum died, and this is one of her lesser known titles. Originally published in 1926 by Reilly & Lee, the International Wizard of Oz Club produced a softcover and hardcover edition in 1985. This is the hardcover edition, with a bright red gilt decorated cover, and shiny full color dust jacket. Illustrated throughout in black and white by John R. Neill, 127 pages.

This book itself is in fine condition–no marks or tears, clean and bright, fabulous cover. The dust jacket has light edge wear. A must have for Thompson fans!
