Description

Here is a 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 2 years with the plates, because In 1935 Reilly & Lee stopped including the color plates to cut costs. This book also is in the “A” binding, according to the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum, with the boldface publisher’s imprint.

Book is in very good condition overall. Light wear to pastedown with a very small chip at lower right corner. Cloth and spine in generally nice condition with light wear. Inside, the front hinge is tight and the rear is lightly cracked, but the binding is still tight. Neat name on ownership page. All 12 plates are present and in very good condition. Endpapers are clean as are the text pages. A nice copy overall.
