1st Edn WISHING HORSE OF OZ Ruth Plumly Thompson Book 12 Color Plates


In stock


The Wishing Horse of Oz, this is a first edition Wizard of Oz book from Reilly & Lee with 12 color plates! Wishing Horse is the 29th Oz book, and the last one to be issued with color plates, so very hard to find in the 1st edition (only one printing). Written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, and illustrated by John R. Neill. 298 pages.

Condition is good minus–with some rubbing to pastedown on top of the ribbing of the linen-like cover cloth, light fraying at base of spine and a small ding above the H of the title. The major flaw is inside, as the front hinge is cracked and the rear hinge is badly cracked, with the mull (webbing) broken about 2/3 of the way up. So the covers are floppy, but all 12 color plates in very good condition. The pages have light wear/soiling and the ownership page is filled in. Offered at discount due to condition.
