Description

Interesting book by Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum about John Dough, a very unusual gingerbread man. This is copyright 1906, but a circa 1920 early Reilly & Lee edition with 12 color plates and Oz titles in front listing to Glinda of Oz. Illustrated endpapers. Besides the plates, the book has many weird and wonderful drawings by John R. Neill. Also comes with the original 2004 sales receipt when it was purchased for $70, considerably more than what I'm asking. I've actually read this book and it's pretty entertaining!

This book has some wear, as expected for an old children's book. Cover color pastedown has moderate wear. Spine has a little fraying at ends and rear cover has some discoloration. Inside, the hinges are cracked so the webbing beneath is showing, but everything is holding. Old pencil price in corner of front endpaper and owner's name and address in pen on back of it. The text and plates have some foxing and light soiling, a few edge tears. A good reading copy, with all 12 color plates by Neill present.
