Written by Baum in 1904, this story first appeared at the time in a woman's magazine and later, in 1915, within an obscure anthology of christmas tales. This book represents the first time that it was published as a book in its own right and it was fully illustrated in 1969 by Rosenblum. It is illustrated on every page in pen and ink style in brown, black and red. Green cloth boards with red line illustration to upper board and titling to backstrip. This copy comes from the library of Ray Powell, who wrote two Oz books - The Raggedys in Oz [1968] and Mr. Flint in Oz [1969]. There is his personal library plate on the verso of the ffep.There is a personal inscription on the ffep to Powell from Martin Williams, who wrote the foreward to the book. This inscription is dated 1969, the publication year of the book. Very slight nicks to the edges of the folds of the dustjacket. Very minor rubbing to corners of boards and very minor sunning to edges of end papers. A very good copy. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
