Description

Here’s the New Wizard of Oz published by McClelland & Stewart (Toronto) in 1944; I believe this is the 1st Canadian edition of L Frank Baum’s classic. Green cloth with McClelland & Stewart on the spine and both Bobbs Merrill and McClelland & Steward on the title page. llustrated by Evelyn Copelman “adapted from the famous pictures by W.W. Denslow”, but not really–Copelman’s are based more on the movie. With 8 full-color illustrations by Evelyn Copelman and many B&W drawings. 209 pages. A must for the international Oz collector.

Book is in good plus condition, with some spotting/discoloration to cloth, and fading to spine. Binding and hinges are tight. Prior owner’s silver address label on front endpaper. Pages in nice condition except for corner bumping and a few with slight rippling near the end.
