Sold: PRINCESS OF COZYTOWN in BOX, Ruth Plumly Thompson Book, Janet Laura Scott, Oz


Out of stock


Here is The Princess of Cozytown by Ruth Plumly Thompson, author of many Wizard of Oz books, in the original publisher’s box! Published by P F Volland in 1922, illustrated by the amazing Janet Laura Scott, one of my favorites.

Copyright 1922, no other dates or printings listed. The book features beautiful color illustrated endpapers, INCREDIBLE color illustrations by Scott throughout. This is one of the most beautiful Oz-related books ever. With ads for Volland Fairy and Happy Children books in the rear. A nice collectible for both the Ruth P Thompson and J L Scott connection.

The book is in near very good condition, with some dark staining to spine as often happens with this title, presumably due to the glue used. Crease to front edge. Interior has some erasure marks on front endpaper, fold marks to some pages, and one page with a 1″ tear at edge glue repaired. Binding is tight. It has a custom removable mylar cover. The box is in very good condition, with light wear but with bright graphics and all flaps and edges intact. A rare survivor!
