Here is a hard to find book by L. Frank Baum, author of the Wizard of Oz. The Daring Twins was published in 1911 by Reilly & Britton, the first of a series of two books that includes also Phoebe Daring. This is a first edition (only Reilly & Britton printing), in the first (A) binding with blue cloth (Book Collector’s Guide to L. Frank Baum). The series wasn’t very popular and so these titles are rather hard to find.
With 317 pages and 4 inserted black and white plates by Pauline Batchelder.
The book is in good condition only. The cover and spine are pretty nice, but with edge wear and soft corners. Inside, the hinges and binding are solid. There is foxing to the endpapers and a lot of unsightly brown stains to the text block–dirty little fingers I guess. No former owner’s inscription; a few pages have small bits of the top corner torn off. Text is complete and the four B&W plates are present and in very good condition.
