THIS DEFINITIVE IDENTIFICATION GUIDE examines all of Baumís published book-length works with unprecedented simplicity and clarity. Also included are the Oz books of his five "official" successors, plus other important related volumes, covering over 150 titles in toto! Color plate locations, changes in advertisements, and other tell-tale points are covered for all major printings, not just first editions; many variants are described for the first time anywhere. Essays introduce each book, discussing its history and including such supporting information as excerpts from Baumís letters, contemporary critical reviews, and original advertising and related ephemera. 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. IDEAL FOR COLLECTORS, DEALERS, AND CATALOGUERS!
