Vintage OZMA OF OZ Book ROYCRAFT Dust Jacket L Frank Baum


Out of stock


Here is an Ozma of Oz book with the hard-to-find Roycraft dust jacket. Ozma of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum and published by Reilly & Lee, copyright 1907. 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 book cover is blank, as always with this jacket. This is definitely one of the prettiest Roycraft jackets, IMO.

Book is in good plus condition with former’s owner’s name on endpaper and ownership page, clean pages. A little cracking starting at rear hinge, but binding is still tight. Dust jacket is good only–price clipped, some loss at spine base, a couple closed tears, splitting at rear flap fold and other minor wear. Still very attractive.
