An interesting Russian Wizard of Oz book by Alexander Volkov –the 1st title of the “Magic Land” series on which Russian children were raised. “Wizard of the Emerald City” is based on Baum’s Wizard of Oz book. Vintage Russian edition published in Moscow (I think) in 1978. Stuffed with charming color illustrations by Vladimirsky, who also did the postcard set I have listed. 172 page hardcover. Good to fair condition with wear and soiling–corners bumped to boards pages with much finger soiling. Offered at a discount and still a must for the collector of international Oz.
