KABUMPO IN OZ Book DICK MARTIN Dust Jacket Ruth Plumly Thompson


In stock


Here is an unusual copy of Kabumpo in Oz with a hard-to-find dust jacket illustrated by Dick Martin. In 1960, only ten of the Oz books were issued in special dust jackets by Martin, and these were only in production for a few years before being replaced by the “white cover” editions without dust jackets, which are much more common. These jacket covers are described in Appendix 2 of Bibliographia Oziana (1988). Kabumpo was written by Ruth Plumly Thompson and published by Reilly & Lee. This is one of the hardest to find Martin jackets!

The book is very good plus, with a clean lime green cloth, intact binding with tiny tear starting at rear hinge, no marks, writing or tears. The dust jacket is fair to good, price clipped, with moderate wear and wrinkling and soiling, some chipping to spine ends, old tape residue. Will be shipped with a custom mylar-type cover. Martin’s dust jackets are becoming more and more collectible.
