The Laughing Dragon of Oz, Baum, Frank J.
2 Baum, Frank J. The Laughing Dragon of Oz
Racine, WI: Whitman Publishing 1934 First Edition Pictorial Cover Very Good + 
First (and only) printing. The only published Oz story by L. Frank's eldest son, which led to a lawsuit by Reilly & Lee against Whitman over the Oz trademark; after Whitman's defeat it was agreed that the book would not be reprinted, and thus it is one of the scarcest of the Big Little Books today. A Very Good + copy of this delicate book, with some edge wear to the covers. MUCH nicer than most copies that have survived to this day.
