Sold: LUCKY BUCKY IN OZ Unusual Spine John R. Neill Reilly & Lee Book ca. 1945 Nr Fine


Out of stock


Here is a nice copy of Lucky Bucky in Oz,with the unusual spine imprint w/o an illustration where “OZ” is spelled out (rather than a figural device), and where REILLY & LEE is given in all caps at the base. According to the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum, this (second) printing only was published between about 1944-1946, which may explain why it’s a much harder spine imprint to find. Published by Reilly & Lee and copyright 1942 by John R. Neill, Oz illustrator who continued writing the series for a while. Book also has a full color pastedown, black and white illustrations by Neill, and blank endpapers.

This is a beautiful copy with a stunning clean cover plate and cloth in crisp, excellent condition. Inside, the endpapers and hinges are tight and the only small flaw is erasure marks of a bookseller’s notation on front endpaper. Pages clean with no writing, tears, or odor!
