Here’s one of L Frank Baum’s books that he wrote under the Suzanne Metcalf pseudonym. 2nd edition by Reilly & Britton (1912); name misspelled Susanne on cover. Rare in either edition. Problem is, this is just a reading copy with many faults. The binding is shabby; spine wear, marks on rear cover, boards slightly bent. Inside, an endpaper or two are missing with book opening to title page. Fixed endpapers dirty. Missing all 3 B&W plates. Light water mark on edges of same pages. Text and ad pages in rear appear complete. One of my “Wild and Homeless” items that’s looking for a non-judgmental home–a reading copy or inexpensive placeholder til you find a better one.
