Sold: Wizard of OZ TOY BOOK Replica John R Neill Peach Cover B&W Illustrations


Out of stock


Here is an interesting item for your collection–a B&W replica of the “Oz Toy Book”, originally published by Reilly & Britton in 1915. 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 binding is stapled and the cover is an interesting peach color cardstock. There have been a few reproductions, but this printing is more unusual, and there is no indication of who published it. Maybe an Oz Club premium? There is a little bumping to the corners, but overall in very good or better condition.

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.
