Wizard of Oz Complete Collectible Set

The Wizard of Oz - 14 Volume Set - The White Edition

Author:  L. Frank Baum

Publisher:  Reilly & Lee

Date:  1956

Condition:  VG+ to near Fine

It is unusual to find this edition complete, and very unusual to find it in such good condition.   A very collectible set.

Characteristics:  This is a complete reprint of Baum's Classic series.   All 14 of his books are reproduced.   The series is known as the White Edition because of the white borders.   They differ from the early 1900's first editions of the work in this way.   All books have illustrated endpapers and are illustrated by the original illustrator (for 13 of the books it's John R. Neill, the first Wizard book was illustrated by W.W. Denslow).  There are additional  titles in the Oz series, but none of them were done by Baum.

Titles include

  • The Wizard of Oz
  • The Land of Oz
  • Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz
  • The Road to Oz
  • The Emerald City of Oz
  • The Patchwork Girl of Oz
  • The Tok of Oz
  • The Scarecrow of Oz
  • Rinkitink in Oz
  • The Lost Princess of Oz
  • The Tin Woodman of Oz
  • The Magic of  Oz
  • Glinda of Oz
