Chicago: Reilly & Lee 1909 Very Good Good 
Vintage printing, circa mid-1950's. A Very Good copy with a bright front cover label (and, curiously, endpaper illustrations originally used in Thompson's 1928 Giant Horse of Oz), in the scarce DUST JACKET (good only, with edgewear and chips missing from the spine ends and edges, some old scotch taping). This was the only Baum Oz book issued without color illustrations, and Neill's intricately detailed pen and ink work is a delight!
