BAUM, L[yman] Frank. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  With pictures by W. W. Denslow. Chicago: Geo. M. Hill, 1900. 8vo, 260pp. Light green cloth pictorially stamped in green and red. Pictorial fixed endpapers; 24 color plates and two-color illustrations on nearly every page. An unusually bright, sharp copy that has been expertly recased, internally bright and showing no evidence of rubbing to the stamping on the boards or any of the usual internal hand-soiling, housed in a custom-made slip-case.

First edition, second state, binding state “C”, bearing all of the second state points for the text and the plates (Bienvenue p.4-6). A surprisingly bright copy of Baum’s masterpiece. This book shows no sign of cocking or leaning and retains a remarkably rounded spine and the cloth is still light green (instead of faded to tan as nearly all copies are). While this copy has been recased, the work was expertly done and is almost imperceptible. The book that inspired the longest running Broadway musical of the early 20th Century, a series of 40 books, and the beloved MGM musical starring Judy Garland. A cornerstone for any collection of American children’s books. $24,000.
