True First Edition
|Publisher||REILLY & BRITTON|
Reilly & Britton, 1907. FIRST EDITION, first printing. First edition point of issue - "O" is missing from Ozma on page 11, line 5. “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and “Land of Oz” are the only two titles mentioned (this being the third in the Oz series.) Good complete condition, spine casing all but gone, still firmly bound. Rare original embossed covers with bright and sharp colors, much nicer than usually observed. “Ozma Of Oz, A Record of Her Adventures with Dorothy Gale of Kansas, the Yellow Hen, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, Tiktok, The Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger, Besides Other Good People Too Numerous to Mention Faithfully Recorded Here” Among the brightest and most colorful of illustrated endpages. Forty full page color plates and countless black and white vingettes by the legendary Oz artist John R. Neill. This is a very scarce true first edition, a collectible rarity as well as an excellent investment. 270 pages.
