The Story of the Wizard of Oz (a coloring book), copyright 1939 by Bobbs-Merrill and published by Whitman Publishing Co. Illustrated by Henry E Vallely. Listed in Bibliographia Oziana (plate 11). Oversized, about 9 by 11″, 48 pages.
This book was printed on cheap paper and is difficult to find in decent condition, but this copy is especially nice! Both front and back covers look almost new, with just light wear at the spine ends. Inside, the binding is tight, and there is an old pencil notation at top of front endpaper. Pages have age toning, but are otherwise very clean without writing or coloring. A very nice copy overall!
