Here is “The Visitors from Oz” book with an unusual green buckram library binding. Pictorial library bindings are becoming very collectible, since they are different and colorful and have recently been featured in an article in the 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 nice condition for a library book. The spine label has been neatly removed, light soiling to cover, library markings to front endpaper, card pocket remnants inside cover. Pages in good condition with light wear. Binding is tight and solid. A nice item for those who like the unusual, and Dick Martin’s art.
