Description

Here is an unusual edition of Glinda of Oz, fourteenth of the Oz books, written by L. Frank Baum, copyright 1920. This is a later edition with black and white illustrations and no front cover pastedown, but with the hard-to-find dust jacket illustrated by Dick Martin. In 1960, only ten of the Oz books were issued in special dust jackets by Martin, and these were only in production for a few years before being replaced by the “white cover” editions without dust jackets, which are much more common. The unusual jacket cover is described in Appendix 2 of Bibliographia Oziana (1988). Jacket lists to Hidden Valley of Oz (1951).

Book is in very good condition. Front cover, spine, and rear cover are nice with a small scuff on front right. Interior tight, with name on ownership page but otherwise clean pages. Dust jacket is price clipped and has some edge wear, a few closed tears, a little loss at spine ends, and a long tear along rear flap, but it’s still attached.
