Vintage RINKITINK in OZ Book L Frank Baum in DICK MARTIN Dust Jacket


In stock


Here is a nice copy of a Rinkitink in Oz book by L Frank Baum with the hard-to-find dust jacket illustrated by Dick Martin. In 1960, only ten of the Wizard of Oz books were issued in special dust jackets by Martin, and these were only in production for a few years before being replaced by the “white cover” editions without dust jackets. The unusual and beautiful Rinkitink jacket cover is described in Appendix 2 of Bibliographia Oziana (1988). Rinkitink was written by L. Frank Baum and published by Reilly & Lee, copyright 1916. Jacket lists to Hidden Valley of Oz (1951).

Book is in very good condition. Front cover, spine, and rear cover are virtually perfect; inside there is prior owner’s name and address on front endpaper as well as on ownership page. Otherwise clean and tight. Dust jacket is good plus,  price clipped with a little edge wear and some chipping at top of spine and rear cover.
