Vintage THE MAGIC OF OZ Book L Frank Baum 1946 in Dust Jacket


In stock



Here is a nice copy of The Magic Of Oz book in its original dust jacket. Written by L. Frank Baum, published by Reilly & Lee, copyright 1919. This is a post 1935 version with the color pastedown cover, but without the color plates. Beautiful illustrated endpapers. Dust jacket lists to #36, Magical Mimics in Oz, dating the book to about 1946.

Book is in near fine condition, with a clean front and rear cover, and light fading to spine. Inside there is a name on the ownership page, and age toning to the endpapers. The rest of the book is nearly perfect with strong hinges and no tears, writing or odor! The dust jacket is fair only, with a complete separation between the front and the spine, held together by a mylar-type cover. Otherwise complete and not price-clipped, with some edge chipping. Please note: I’m not sure the mylar cover is archival, so would suggest you change it to a newer archival cover.
