Sold: YANKEE IN OZ Rare Ruth Plumly Thompson Book 1972 1st Edition Softcover Wraps


Out of stock


Here is a 1st edition book of Yankee in Oz, published by the Wizard of Oz Club in 1972. This is the softcover “wraps” format of the 1st printing of 1972, Binding A according to the Book Collector’s Guide to Baum. 33 years went by between Ruth P Thompson’s previous Oz book and this one. I’m not sure how many were published, but this book is fairly hard to find. Oversized, 94 pages, illustrated in black and white by Dick Martin. See also my 2nd edition listings of this title, if you’re looking for a lower priced copy.

Book is in near fine condition with just a little age toning to pages. Complete text, strong binding. This was from a long-term club member and collector who bought and stored his books carefully.
