Sold: Vintage PIRATES IN OZ Book Ruth Plumly Thompson ROYCRAFT Dust Jacket


Out of stock


Here is a nice copy of Pirates in Oz, with one of the hardest to find Roycraft dust jackets. In about 1959, just eleven of the Oz books were issued in special dust jackets 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 more common. Pirates in Oz was written by Ruth Plumly Thompson and published by Reilly & Lee, copyright 1931. B&W illustrations; jacket lists to Hidden Valley of Oz, as do all the Roycraft jackets.

Book itself is in near fine condition, clean and tight; Book Belongs To page blank. Jacket is good, minor edge chipping to edges and flap folds, some staining near base, and with cutout at top of rear flap as shown (I think this was an order blank for more Oz books). Super hard to find Oz, protected in a mylar-type jacket!
