Sold: Vintage GLINDA OF OZ Book, L Frank Baum DICK MARTIN Dust Jacket


Out of stock


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.
