Out of stock


Here is a copy of Magical Mimics in Oz by Jack Snow, copyright 1946, published by Reilly & Lee and illustrated by John R Neill. This is a first edition, over 1″ thick with cover plate and green illustrated endpapers, 242 pages. Jacket is also a 1st with back flap blurb “Oz Books now Classics” (reference the Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum). Grey binding “A”.

The book itself is in fine condition overall. The front cover pastedown is as new, still with that sheen of fresh printing still present. Spine and rear cover look great, as does interior. Nice clean and untorn endpapers, tight binding, pages in excellent condition. No writing on ownership page. The dust jacket is fair to good; price clipped with substantial edge wear, staining to front flap and the rear side has lots of tape applied as support. See photos.
