Description

A scarce first edition of “Ojo in Oz” in original 1st printing dust jacket. This is one of the harder 1sts to find, particularly in dust jacket, since it was only printed for a couple years before they dropped the color plates. Written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, successor to L. Frank Baum, copyright 1933 by Reilly & Lee, spine imprint in semi-script lettering. With 12 beautiful color plates by John R. Neill and the original 1st printing dust jacket listing titles to Ojo in Oz.
This book is in very good condition. The color pastedown has a little staining; the spine has light fading and the cloth is in great shape. Inside, the hinges are intact and the binding is tight. The pages are clean and all 12 plates are in fabulous, bright condition! Endpapers have age toning and former owner’s name in pen on front endpaper, period Girl Scout bookplate on rear cover (artist signed “W S S”). This girl scout bookplate is collectible in itself, mentioned on this Facebook post and until I posted the image, only shown from a catalog. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?id=1304720229608281&story_fbid=2158543817559247

The dust jacket is in fair condition, with a couple long tears on front and flap folds that have old tape repair on back side, and edge wear and some loss to spine as shown. Not price clipped, but some of the titles on the flap are circled in pen.
