About this Item: George M. Hill Company, Chicago, 1900. Condition: Fine. First edition. Extremely rare first state of the book that gave Americans their own fairy tale, the exceptionally beautiful Pat McInally copy. Although it was only one of four books Baum published in 1900, THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ was his most ambitious as a publication: he and illustrator W.W. Denslow envisioned an elaborate production of color-printed plates to reflect the role that color plays in the story. The expense turned publishers away until Baum and Denslow took the gamble to pay for the printing costs themselves. Their instinct was right: the book quickly became the fastest selling children's book in the United States, and was soon turned into a sensation at the theater. Denslow and Baum would soon part acrimoniously over the share of the profits (Denslow purchased, no joke, an island from his); the rest of the Oz books in Baum's lifetime were illustrated by John R. Neill.Baum has a complicated legacy: he was also a newspaperman whose opinions on Native American rights were especially pernicious. The Oz books offered a dream world for the children of Manifest Destiny, emigrating across the West. Yet over the years Dorothy's journey with her motley friends has proven fertile soil for a variety of new interpretations, including THE WIZ (1978) and WICKED (1995), demonstrating its power as a modern mythos. The original story may surprise readers, with silver shoes instead of ruby slippers, and an Emerald City that is green only because the visitors must wear colored goggles.The book's bibliography is notoriously complicated, with more than a dozen different points, and the appearance of mixed states common. This copy has every single point of the first state in its plates, text, and binding - and is remarkably scarce as such.A gorgeous example, with few rivals in condition and edition still surviving. 8.25'' x 6''. Original full green cloth stamped in red and green, "Geo. M. Hill Co." stamped in sans-serif typeface on spine, with "o" not within "C." Illustrated pastedowns in black and grey (front) and black and red (rear). Ads facing title page boxed. 24 full-page color plates, including title page (verso blank); two blots on moon in plate facing p.34, red shading on plate facing p.92. Single-color vignettes (in red, blue, green, grey, yellow, and brown) throughout. Page 14 line one reads "low wail on"; page 81 with "peices"; page [227] begins "While Tin Woodman." Eleven-line boxed colophon. 216, [1] pages. Gift inscription dated in year of publication on front free endpaper. Housed in a custom full green goatskin slipcase and cloth chemise. Cloth remarkably fresh with little soiling, hinges sound. Seller Inventory # 1124

In very good condition with some professional restoration to the joints. Housed in a custom half morocco and chemise box. Frank L. Baum worked in many trades before he wrote The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, including publisher, poultry breeder, door-to-door salesman and newspaper editor. "Among the five Baum titles published in 1900, preeminent even then was The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The New York Times found it 'bright and joyous' and omnisciently offered, 'It will indeed be strange if there be a normal child who will not enjoy the story.' The first edition was a picturesque novelty with its 24 color plates and many line drawings; Denslow's conceptions of the characters and landscapes contributed immeasurably to the book's popularity" (Fricke, 22). Baum "set out to change children's books and made a lasting contribution to American literature The Wizard of Oz has entered American folklore. It reflected and has altered the American character" (Hearn, xiii). "Those who read the Oz books are often made what they were not imaginative, tolerant, alert to wonders, life" (Gore Vidal).

About this Item: LIFE, .n.p., 1944. Wraps. Condition: Very good. Folio. Six pages in color reproducing sixteen of Denslow's drawings, as well as eleven incorporated into the text, from the first edition of the first Oz book. The pages are adhered to stiff paper wraps, and are an extract from a larger periodical. There is no pagination nor indication of year. However a text reference to the only then availably complete edition was Bobbs-Merrill at $2.50 leads us to date this at about 1944 which was when that edition was in print at that price. Baum's story has been condensed to showcase Denslow's art. We suspect this was published in response to the MGM musical, as the first sentence opens with "LIFE here presents the long forgotten original illustrations by W. W. Denslow for the now rare 1900 first edition of L. Frank Baum's children's classic." And here are The Kalidahs, The Queen of the field mice, china people, Hammer-Heads and Glinda. In very good condition. An unusual Oz item. Seller Inventory # 21395
