Out of stock


This item is on hold for MR. Please do not purchase, thanks. Here is a nice 1st edition, 1st printing of Grampa in Oz by Ruth Plumly Thompson. Published in 1924 by Reilly & Lee, wiith 12 color plates by John R. Neill. (This is the only early Oz book that didn’t have a color frontispiece as one of the 12 plates). Light brick red cloth wiith nice illustrated endpapers. As called for in Book Collector’s Guide to Baum, the numeral on page 171 is in perfect type; later printings showed type damage.

Book is in very good condition, with a clean pastedown and rear cover, light wear to spine ends. Inside, both hinges are tight with very light wear. The Book Belongs To page has a former owner’s inscription and an old price and notation at the top. The book is complete, with all 12 color plates intact and in very good condition. Overall, a quite nice copy of a desirable Thompson 1st edition.
