Book Description

Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1940. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. No date, ca. 1940, in pictorial bright green cloth, plain endpapers, 8 color plates and numerous b/w illustrations by W. W. Denslow, near fine copy with light spottiness and soil to endpapers (and inscription on e.p.) in rare dust jacket with with text on cover saying 'The only edition containing the complete original text on which the famous Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie is based' and rear panel of dj featuring stills of Dorothy and the Wizard and the threesome of the Cowardly Lion, the Tinman and the Scarecrow, with 'Read the Book and See the Movie' as the bottom caption. Seems to be a slightly later printing, possibly 1940-ish of the edition featuring pictorial endpapers from the movie that the publisher issued in 1939. RARE edition, the dust jacket is very good with light edgewear and an inch loss to spine bottom.
