 SNOW, Jack. Who’s Who in Oz. With over 490 of the celebrated Oz illustrations by John R. Neill, Frank Kramer, and “Dirk.” NY: Peter Bedrick Books [1988]. 8vo, x 278pp. Smooth maroon cloth stamped in gold on spine. Map endpapers in maroon ink; illustrations in maroon ink throughout. Light soiling to edges of sheets, else a fine copy in original color pictorial dust jacket.

Second edition, first printing. The first edition was produced by Reilly & Lee in 1954, and only had one printing, so this first and only printing of the Peter Bedrick edition is the second printing to appear of this book. Though beloved by Oz collectors, this book was not a commercial success, and as such only had very limited printings, making these books fairly uncommon. A wonderful, guided tour of the world of Oz, featuring descriptions of over 630 characters with hints at the parts they play in the 39 Oz books published between 1900 and 1951, as well as almost 500 b&w illustrations from the original illustrators of the beloved books.
