Sold: Enchanted Island of Yew Book L Frank Baum Oz 8 Color Plates 1913 Donohue


Out of stock


Here is one of Baum’s non-Oz books that isn’t seen very often. This printing is copyright 1903 and is similar to the Bobbs-Merrill first edition, but has Donohue on the title page so is circa 1913 according to the Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum. With a nice Art Nouveau cover in blue cloth and eight wonderful color plates by Fanny Y. Cory; blank endpapers.

This copy is in near very good condition, with a nice clean cover and spine, some corner wear. Inside, the endpapers are intact but there is a crack in the binding between the half-title and the frontispiece, so the binding is a little loose. Gift inscription on the front endpaper and one text page has a stain in the corner (shown). Otherwise, the interior looks great, with all eight color plates present and in quite nice condition.
