BIBLIOGRAPHIA OZIANA Wizard of Oz Baum Reference Book 1st Printing 1976


In stock


Here is a 1st printing of the original bible for Oz collectors, Bibliographia Oziana, published by the Wizard of Oz Club, copyright 1976 by Greene, Haff, Martin, Haff and Greene. This is the first printing of the first edition, from March 1976. Softcover, 103 pages. A later 1988 edition includes a bit more information, but this is nice since it’s the first of this great effort by Oz scholars.

Trust me, if you want to collect Oz books, you will appreciate this book (or the more expensive and inclusive Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum). BibOz describes the different editions and states (printings) of all the major Oz books by Baum, Thompson and others. Also includes some odd rare editions. Impossible to navigate through these books, which often don’t list other than the earliest copyright date, without this book which gives you all the nitpicky details so you know what you’re buying! In very good condition with light wear.
