Sold: Greene Signed Curious Cruise of Captain Santa Ruth Plumly Thompson Oz 1985 SC


Out of stock


Here is a softcover facsimile edition of Ruth Plumly Thompson’s original “The Curious Cruise of Captain Santa”, made special in that it’s a copy signed by Oz expert Doug Greene to his brother, David Greene. Doug wrote the introduction (ending on p. 10) and playfully says “For Dave, Jenine & Chris from the person named on p. 10” on the front endpaper. Of course Thompson wrote many Oz books after L. Frank Baum died, and Curious Cruise 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 softcover edition, llustrated throughout in black and white by John R. Neill, 127 pages.

In very good condition but with corner bumping to upper cover and first few leaves.
