Here is a copy of The Land of Oz with the hard-to-find Roycraft dust jacket. In about 1959, just eleven of the Oz books were issued in special dust jackets designed by designed by Roland Roycraft. 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 cloth cover is blank. Land of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum and published by Reilly & Lee. The jacket lists to Hidden Valley of Oz, as do all in this jacket series.

Book is in very good condition–light discoloration to cloth and bump to upper left of board. Inside there is former owner’s name on endpaper and small stain to base of 1st few pages. Hinges tight and pages in nice condition overall. Jacket is good to very good–priceclipped with some loss at top of spine and one long closed tear on back, a few small edge tears. Protected in archival plastic cover and attractive in a funky 1960s sort of way. See my Wonderful Books of Oz store for other Roycraft and Dick Martin jackets from this series.
