Sold: 1928 WIZARD OF OZ PLAY Script L. Frank Baum Junior League, Samuel French


Out of stock


Here is an unusual old Oz ephemeral item, “The Wizard of Oz: Play in Three Acts”, one of The Junior League plays, from the story by L. Frank Baum. A small green softcover, copyright Samuel French, 1928, 72 pages. Early edition, as there seem to be reprints with later dates available online, but this only has the 1928 date, well before the famous MGM movie in 1939! “By special arrangement with the owner, Mrs. L Frank Baum”, and with much legalese on the back of the copyright page about what can and can’t be done (no music!), royalties to be paid and such.

The book’s cover has some wear with some of the letters marked up with pen as shown, corner bumping. The cover has a crease mark. Inside, former owner’s name on half-title page, with some age toning but pages in generally good shape. Binding is tight. A rare survivor.
