Here is a fun copy of The Magic of 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). Magic was written by L. Frank Baum and published by Reilly & Lee.

The book itself is in excellent condition, with just an inscription on the Book Belongs To page. Cover and text is very clean; tight hinges. The jacket is price clipped and has some chipping to top and bottom and a small hole to spine. Still very attractive overall, protected in a mylar-type cover.
