|Publisher||BLUE RIBBON BOOKS, INC|
BLUE RIBBON BOOKS, INC., 1934. FIRST EDITION, second state. (Publisher name not on spine.) Very good condition, some minor starting on inside covers, but tightly bound and remarkably clean throughout, some minor closed edge tears. Minimal corner wear, and bright pastedown on cover and relatively clean original green binding The Wizard of Oz WADDLE BOOK, is among the most scarce of all original Oz titles. With the six punch out waddles (which this ow beautiful copy no longer possesses) is valued at a minimum of ten thousand dollars in similar condition to our volume here. Illustrations by original Oz illustrator W.W. Denslow. An excellent collectible copy, most likely to benefit from the contemporary big budget Oz film(s). Spine decoration of the Cowardly Lion. There are numerous Denslow illustrations, including some full page color. Complete instructions for assembling the waddles, would in fact allow for the recreation of these SIX WADDLES if so desired. 211 pages.
