Out of stock


Here’s a nice Italian Oz book, retaining the original “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” title or “Il Meraviglioso Mago di Oz” in Italian. What makes it especially nice is it uses original W W Denslow title page art for the cover, and has eight of the original Denslow color plates inserted in the center of the book. Other Denslow art is used in B&W throughout. This is a small softcover book, just 5 1/8″x7 1/2″ and 255 pages. Published in 1978 by Arnoldo Mondadori (Milan). In very good condition with tight binding, some age staining to rear cover and endpapers, and original Italian price sticker on rear cover. Other pages are age toned but clean and unmarked. An unusual item for your international Oz or Denslow collection!
