Description

Here is an unusual large, softcover reproduction of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz book, which includes reproduction of 16 color plates by W W Denslow from the original 1st edition book. According to Bill Stillman, this is from a 1974 book-and-record set published by Children’s Records of America, NY. It doesn’t look like much on the front, but inside is gold as it includes an abridged text and 16 of the full page color illustrations, nicely printed. Also with some of Denslow’s iconic line art liberally sprinkled throughout.

Book in good condition, with substantial soiling to cover, inside with light staining and binding intact. (Record not included).
