Description

Here is a rare copy of Jack Pumpkinhead of Oz, the Copp Clark (Canadian) first edition book. Oz experts know that Copp-Clark published many of the Oz books simultaneously with the first editions of Reilly & Britton and Reilly & Lee, and that fewer were published than the American editions. See “Oz in Canada” reference book for more information, where C. J. Hinke says, “Collectors of Oz books have long recognized that Copp Clark copies are very scarce”. This book is a first edition, first printing, with the Copp Clark imprint on both the spine and the title page. Copyright 1929, written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, and also contains 12 amazingly colorful plates by John R. Neill!

The book is in very good condition; light scuffing to pastedown, clean spine with a bit of edge wear, clean rear cover but slight lifting to cloth that I’ve seen one other copies of Jack Pumpkinhead. Inside, very neat glue repair to top part of front hinge, rear hinge perfect, clean endpapers, erased name on Book Belongs To page, no other marks, very clean pages, and best of all, all 12 color plates present and in beautiful condition!
