Here is “The Visitors from Oz” book with an unusual green buckram library binding. Pictorial library bindings have become very collectible, since they are different and colorful and have recently been featured in a 2015 Baum Bugle by Bienvenue and Schmidt. Published in 1960 by Reilly & Lee, with beautiful and bold full-color illustrations by Dick Martin. With “American Publishers Company” printed on the back.
The book is in fair condition, typical of a library book. The cover is still quite attractive, spine has two dings and “J B” mark, card pocket and marked out label to rear endpaper, faint library markings to title page and stamp to rear endpaper. Staining to upper right of some pages front and back, only noticeable on lighter pages, see photos. Binding is tight and solid. A nice item for those who like the unusual, and Dick Martin’s art.
