Description

Here is an early copy of The Patchwork Girl of Oz book with the blue decorated cover. Written by L. Frank Baum, published by Reilly & Lee, copyright 1913. This printing is circa 1925 (with no advertisements on back of half title page).  Beautiful color illustrated endpapers, and many fabulous color illustrations by John R Neill throughout the text.

This is in good condition, with a few flaws. The front cover has light wear; the spine is faded with fraying at the ends; the rear cover looks good. Inside, the front hinge is cracked but the rear one is intact, and the binding is holding well. There is a “Hollywood Baptist Church” bookplate on the Book Belongs To page and a notation “donated by Gloria R Crowley”.  The rest of the pages are in quite good condition a few stains, and with beautiful Neill illustrations.
