Reuniting readers with Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow, this is the exact replica edition of L. Frank Baum’s complete Wizard of Oz series. Originally published between 1900 and 1920, the 14-volume library assembles all the Baum titles in one collection, reissued for the first time in their inaugural form by historic publisher Charles Winthrope & Sons, experts at preserving literary classics. The books meticulously recreate every detail of the first editions, including the typeface, endpapers, and even typographical errors that were later corrected. The original artwork by William Wallace Denslow and John R. Neill is intricately reproduced, complete with the brilliant full color and metallic inks that were hallmarks of the initial printings. The artists’ designs inspired the three included 7" H bookends that illustrate the green-faced witch, Dorothy and her friends, and even her little dog Toto. When the books are displayed in order and the linen case bindings are covered in the included dust jackets, the spines show a panoramic scene of the yellow brick road leading toward the Emerald City. The library also includes a bonus 15th book, Little Wizard Stories of Oz, a rare, rediscovered collection of short stories.
