About this Item

First edition, first state in dust jacket. The 29th Oz book and the last to be published with color plates. Book is near fine in very dark green textured cloth; dust jacket very good. An impressive-looking copy with some relatively minor flaws to the jacket: price clipped; 1/4 inch loss at spine ends; general darkening to white on spine and along borders (most apparent along folds); edges worn with a few small closed tears and a little chipping at corners. Titles on rear flap list to this title. Jacket has been expertly laid down under brodart cover and looks very good with bright cover illustrations. Book is tight; one corner lightly bumped, corners square otherwise; lettering on spine bold and bright black; cover paste-on gorgeous and without flaw. Neat gift inscription in adult hand on ownership page. All twelve plates in fine condition. Pages very clean and bright. Bookseller Inventory # 2481

Store Description

Yellow House Books was opened in 1991 in an appropriately yellow house on Main Street in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. We are part of a growing community of used and rare book dealers in southern Berkshire County, taking advantage of the abundance of books to be had in the area. When we first opened, our small size led us to develop habits of rigorous selectively that have not left us now that we have grown from two rooms to three; we still look for the most interesting books in the best possible condition. A few of our areas of special interest are quite extensive. Children¿s illustrated books occupy the better part of our second room, with older collectibles on one side and more recent non-collectibles on the other; adults browse one side, children the other. The photography section, besides filling two large bookcases in the front room, is also distributed on shelves beside and behind the front counter. Likewise, our interest in music has led us to develop a music section characterized by an abundance of sheet music, songbooks, and books relating to most areas of music from classical to folk to jazz. We are, therefore, a small general shop of about 10,000 volumes with some well-developed specialties. Hours: We are open every day from 10:30 to 5:30, Sundays from 12:00 to 5:00.
