Here is a copy of the Royal Book of Oz, copyright 1921 by Reilly & Lee. This is an early 40’s copy with a nice dust jacket listing to “Scallywagons in Oz” (1941). Black and white illustrations by John R. Neill, illustrated endpapers. First Oz book actually written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, although it’s officially credited to L Frank Baum on the cover!

Book in near very good condition, nice cover plate, spine in good shape, a little discoloration along edge in back.  Inside has a 1944 gift inscription on the Book Belongs To page. Hinges are tight and pages have light wear. The jacket is good only, with a few large chips at corners and base of spine. Price and flaps still attached, but price clipped. A decent copy of this desirable old book.
