Here is a copy of the hard to find Lucky Bucky in Oz, copyright 1942 by John R. Neill, famous Oz illustrator who continued writing the series for a while. Additionally, the book includes the original dust jacket. This copy published around 1947-1948 according to the Book Collectors Guide to Baum. With the color pastedown label and the spine vignette with a boy’s face, but with 32 page gatherings and the dust jacket listing to Magical Mimics in Oz. Black and white illustrations by Neill, plain endpapers. This book never was issued with color plates.

Book is in good condition–the front color pastedown is very good, but there is some rubbing and a small ding along the spine, and edge wear. Rear cover looks fine. Inside, the  hinges appear to have been glue repaired and the endpapers have some soiling. There is a date stamp on the dedication page.  The other pages are in great shape– no tears or writing, not even on the Book Belongs To page.

The dust jacket has a couple rather large missing pieces as shown. Flap with other Oz books has check marks on it. Fair only.
