Notes: The indespensible guide to the Oz books, extensively illustrated with more then 500 color images of books, dust jackets, and issue points. Plus ephemera and non-Oz books by Baum. As a suggestion of the breadth of coverage, consider that the section on The Wizard of Oz fills fourteen pages. Few areas of book collecting are more complex than Oz books.
Bienvenue's book is now out of print and scarce because every bookseller who offers Oz books and every collector wanting to identify the particular edition in their hands needs a copy. (I acquired this from a retiring bookseller; I have another copy on my reference shelf).
xxxvii, 369 pages. 8-3/4 inches square.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, with a numberline ending in 1). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.
Publication: El Segundo, CA: March Hare Books, 2009.
