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 1923 (advertisements on back of half title page list to The Cowardly Lion of Oz).  Beautiful color illustrated endpapers, and many fabulous color illustrations by John R  Neill throughout the text.

This is a good copy overall, with some flaws. Front and rear covers have light spotting, spine has light fraying at base and some fading. Light wear to cloth at corners. The interior hinges are intact and endpapers are beautiful.  Book Belongs To page has a long inscription, and some stray pen marks on opposite page. About ten of the black and white illustrations have been colored with crayon (Ojo and Glass Cat ones shown). Top right corner of text block is bumped. Text has light age toning and soiling (worst shown) but overall in good condition.
