[BAUM,L.FRANK]. WONDERFUL GAME OF OZ. Salem: Parker Bros. (board copyrighted 1921). This is the original Oz board game in the cardboard box. The box has a gorgeous chromolithographed color plate on the cover showing Dorothy standing in front of the Tin Man and next to the Scarecrow. The Scarecrow is sitting on the back of the Cowardly Lion with Oz in the background. The box flaps are repaired with some discoloration otherwise sound and VG. This is a later issue with the cover illustration not repeated on the game board and with side panels reaching to the bottom of the box. Inside there are no dividers in the box, contains a wooden barrel, 5 (of 6) wooden dies, 4 wooden tokens and an incomplete instruction booklet. Inside the box a fabulous game board that measures 19" square when opened. This is a nice example of the game, hard to find complete.
