Out of stock


RESERVED FOR BRIAN: The Wishing Horse of Oz: this is a first edition Wizard of Oz book from Reilly & Lee with 12 color plates, in the original dust jacket! Wishing Horse is the 29th Oz book, and the last one to be issued with color plates for just a short while, so hard to find in the 1st edition (only one printing). Written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, and illustrated by John R. Neill. 298 pages. The dust jacket is also a first with the last title being Wishing Horse of Oz.

The book condition is very good plus overall–clean cloth, great pastedown, clean cloth and endpapers. Rear hinge is lightly cracked but binding is still tight. The text pages are in very good condition with a few small, occasional stains, and the Book Belongs To page has a pencil name and 1936 date. The 12 color plates are all present and in excellent condition. The dust jacket is price clipped and is otherwise in very good condition, with some trimming at ends of spine, chipping at rear flap, and slight soiling. Overall a quite nice jacketed copy of a hard to find Thompson first.
