Historical photographs of the major participants, rare artifacts, and original artwork are included to help place the books in the context of their times. 408 pages; over 420 photographs, illustrations, and diagrams, including nearly 350 photographs in full color. Highest quality binding and manufacture: art-book grade coated paper; linen-covered boards and round-backed spine stamped in gilt, reinforced sewing for extra strength; full-color, French-fold dust jacket on laminated stock. FOREWORD BY ROBERT A. BAUM. Praise from Peter E. Hanff, coauthor of Bibliographia Oziana, and Michael O. Riley, author of Oz and Beyond: The Fantasy World of L. Frank Baum.
