Out of stock


Here is a nice early copy of “Tik-tok of Oz”, 8th of the Oz books written by L. Frank Baum. Copyright 1914, this is a Reilly & Lee edition with 12 color plates with captions by John R. Neill. According to the Book Collector’s Guide to L Frank Baum, no list of titles on back of ownership page, so printed between about 1925 and 1934. Blank endpapers.

Book is in near very good condition overall. The cover illustration has slight scuffing and edge wear. The spine and rear cover are nice with a tiny nick at top of the Reilly & Lee spine imprint and another small nick on front board edge. Inside, hinges and binding are intact and endpapers have age toning. Book Belongs To page has a neatly erased name and light foxing. All 12 color plates are attached and in very good condition. Pages are generally clean, occasional finger soiling, no coloring and one page with a small (~1/4″) closed edge tear. A hard to find title with color plates!
