Description

Here is a fun item for your collection–a B&W replica of the “Oz Toy Book”, originally published with color art by John R Neill in 1915. This was published as a facsimile by the International Wizard of Oz Club, with an introduction by Barbara Koelle (undated, probably from the 1980s or 90s). The book has all your favorite Oz characters to cut out (if you choose), including The Wizard (and nine piglets), The Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, Ozma, and even more obscure characters like Braided Man and the King of Bunnybury. And Toto too, of course! The book is 8.5″ by 11″ (16 single sided pages) and the larger characters are about 7″ tall.

The original Oz Toy Book is so rare that you are unlikely to even see it, much less own it, so here is the next best thing. The International Wizard of Oz Club reproduced this book in 1990, but this is the first full color reproduction on heavy cardstock. In near fine condition.
