Here is a first edition/2nd printing of the Rinkitink in Oz book by L Frank Baum, a Wizard of Oz book published in about 1918 by Reilly & Britton. As described in the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum: the 2nd printing has publisher’s advertisement on back of ownership page listing to The Tin Woodman of Oz, olive green cloth, and Reilly & Britton on the title page and spine (Binding A). With pictorial endpapers and 12 color plates by John R Neill.

Condition is good plus–the pastedown has some scuffing but is still attractive. Spine has the number 9 written in black ink and a couple small puncture holes next to it. Minor edge wear. Inside, binding is loose, with some of the mull webbing showing front and back, 1920 inscription on ownership page, and pencil writing opposite where someone has counted her dolls. Pages have moderate sporadic soiling. All 12 color plates are present and in very nice condition.
