Here is a nice copy of the Jack Pumpkinhead of Oz book, copyright 1929 by Ruth Plumly Thompson, with the original dust jacket! Black and white illustrations by John R. Neill, and dust jacket list to Hidden Valley of Oz, which dates the book to the early 1950s. Illustrated endpapers by Neill.

The book is in very good condition, from the collection of a long-term Oz club member. The front cover and pastedown are gorgeous. Spine looks great, but the rear cover does have a flaw at the bottom as shown in one of the photos.  Inside, the hinges are tight and there is no soiling, tears or odor. Just the former owner’s silver address label on the front endpaper. Book Belongs To page is blank. The jacket is good plus, with a small chunk out of base of spine and some edge wear, but front and back still quite nice.  Flaps are intact and not clipped. Nice.
