Sold: Piggy at the Fair+ Piggy Goes to College, Ruth Plumly Thompson 1st Edition OZ 1920


Out of stock


Here is Piggy at the Fair and also Piggy Goes to College (on flip side). Oz book author Ruth Plumly Thompson first published these stories in the Philadelphia Ledger newspaper in 1919. Very scarce; this is the first edition in booklet format by Murray (1920). They were later published by Donohue. Features 2 full color covers plus 14 interior pages of gorgeous color illustrations by Charles J Coll.

Condition is good, with bright attractive graphics, but with a tear at the edge of the cover as shown. Also with some wear/loss at both ends of spine. “James” written in one balloon in pencil–probably could be erased. Corner folds to base of front and rear over. Inside, the pages are in good condition, light soiling. Stapled binding is intact but a little rusty. A difficult book to find, with no other copies currently available online.
