Sold: Hardcover Del Rey Ballantine Rinkitink in Oz Book L Frank Baum Book


Out of stock


Here’s an interesting copy of Rinkitink in Oz books by L Frank Baum, the first Del Rey/Ballatine Books edition, but oddly in hardcover rather than the normal softcover. I believe some Del Rey hardcovers may have gone to libraries, but this has no library markings and appears to be an original factory binding with a Michael Herring cover. Printed in Nov 1980, when the later Baum books (Lost Princess, Tin Woodman, Magic and Glinda, were not yet published by Ballantine. This is a smaller format book. In very good condition outside, but the pages do have a moisture stain at upper corner of front endpapers only, and age toning throughout.
