(1944), (1899), 4to, [8], 209pp. [1], Has misprint p.193 trmendous. Spadoni & Donnelly 1271 Bibliography of McClelland & Stewart, (note this is the only McClelland & Stewart imprint of L.Frank Baum works), Hanff p.33 mentions this edition. "Evelyn Copelman (4 September 1919 10 January 2003) was the artist who illustrated the 1949 edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz for publisher Bobbs-Merrill. She was the FIRST of the "second generation" of Oz artists, who produced new artistic interpretations of Oz stories and characters. Bobbs-Merrill allowed the original version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, with the artwork of W. W. Denslow, to pass out of print in 1944. Five years later, after the paper shortages of World War II had given way to the post-War economic boom, the publisher released a fresh edition of the book, with Copelman's pictures and with the title The New Wizard of Oz. This was the version that a generation of children in the 1950s knew firsthand. The project was Copelman's FIRST book illustration job. The publisher stated that Copelman's art was "adapted from the famous pictures by W. W. Denslow" a false claim. Influence from the 1939 film is more easily detected in Copelman's work." wikiofoz.

About this Item: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis [IN], 1903. Second edition, second state, but the first Bobbs-Merrill printing of Baum's first book in the Oz series, originally published by George M. Hill as "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in 1900. Square 8vo (8 3/4 x 6 5/8 inches). 259, (2) pp. Color illustrations throughout, including 16 plates. Signed by the author "Very Sincerely Yrs / L. Frank Baum" on a front endpaper. "As the early Bobbs-Merrill printings have substantially the same setting of text as the Hill printings, they are technically part of the same edition. For clarity, however, we have retained the traditional usage 'second edition.' G. Thomas Tanselle whom we cite in the introduction, suggests such printing created from earlier plates but by a new publisher should be considered 'sub-editions.' In which case, this is the first 'sub edition'" (Douglas Greene & Martin and Martin, Haff & David Green "Bibliographia Oziana"; International Wizard of Oz Club, 1988, pp. 28-31). Fine copy in a lovely new binding. In a new design binding: emerald morocco, gilt, the upper cover with an illustration of Dorothy's house being swept up by the tornado (taken from an illustration at the beginning of the first chapter), gilt rules and title between raised bands on the spine, all edges gilt, by the Chelsea Bindery. (9789). Seller Inventory # 62043
