Description

A nice 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.

The book itself is in near fine condition–looks barely read. The color pastedown is excellent; the spine is straight and the cloth has the lightest of wear. Inside, there is a little splitting at base of rear hinge but the binding is tight. Endpapers are nice except for former bookseller’s pencil notations and price. The pages are clean and all the plates are in fabulous condition with the ink looking like it just came off the press!
The dust jacket is in fair condition, with a couple large chips on front, chipping and tears to spine, and edge wear and tear as shown. Not price clipped.
