Vintage RINKITINK IN OZ L Frank Baum Book 12 Color Plates 1920s


In stock


Here is an early copy of “Rinkitink in Oz”, 10th of the Oz books written by L. Frank Baum. Copyright 1916, this is a Reilly & Lee printing, dating to between 1920-1935, with 12 color plates by John R. Neill. Also black and white decorated endpapers.

This is a good copy overall, with some flaws. Exterior pastedown has a little creasing and a small piece of scotch tape at lower left (last photo), rear cover has some spotting. The spine is nice. Inside, both hinges are cracked with mull showing but still holding; rear endpaper has remnants of a bookplate. Book Belongs To page is blank. 12 color plates are all present and in nice condition, though frontispiece has been neatly re-inserted. Pages have moderate age toning.
