Here is a vintage copy of The Wonder City of Oz book, copyright 1940 by John R. Neill, famous Oz illustrator who continued writing the series for a while. This is a ca. 1947 Reilly & Lee edition, with a full color pastedown illustration on the cloth front cover, not the 1st printing though because it has 32 page “gatherings”. Black and white illustrations by John R. Neill (illustrations on p. 292-293 switched), illustrated endpapers.

Book is complete but in worn condition, with cloth rubbed through at corners, pastedown with some edge wear, fading to silver gilt spine lettering. Inside, the front hinge is cracked but holding, and there is old bookseller’s notations and price in pencil in corner. The ownership page is blank and the pages are in good condition with no marks or tears and just light soiling.
