Sold: OJO IN OZ Book Ruth Plumly Thompson 1933 1st Edition 12 Color Plates VG+


Out of stock


Here is a gorgeous first edition copy of “Ojo in Oz”, one of the harder to find and thus more desirable vintage Oz titles. Written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, successor to L. Frank Baum. Copyright 1933 by Reilly & Lee, this is a 1st edition, first printing with 12 beautiful color plates by John R. Neill. This book was only issued for about two years with the plates, because In 1935 Reilly & Lee stopped including the color plates to cut costs. This book is in the “A” binding, (according to the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum), with the bold face publisher’s imprint.

The book exterior is in near fine condition, save for a small ding at top of front board (see photo). The cloth on spine and rear cover is in great shape, clean and bright. Inside, the hinges are tight, endpapers slightly age toned, original bookseller’s price seal on rear endpaper. The Book Belongs Page To is blank and pages are clean, no writing or tears.. All 12 plates are present and in excellent, near fine condition. One of the nicest copies I have seen.
