Rinkitink in Oz
The Reilly & Britton Co., 1916 First edition, first state, with no list of titles to verso of ownership page and 12 full color plates by John R. Neill. Publisher's green cloth, stamped in black to spine, with John R. Neill's mounted pictorial panel to front board, lacking dust jacket as usual. A very good copy with some wear to extremities and a slight lean to spine, both hinges slightly starting, small 1.5 inch tear to p.250, previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown, overall a pleasing copy. Rinkitink in Oz, the tenth in Baum's Oz series, is taken largely from a non-Oz related story written by the author ten years earlier, and it was only upon pressure from Baum's publisher that the author incorporated the book into the Oz series. The story takes place on the island of Pingaree as a neighboring country invades and takes the king hostage before he can make use of the magic pearls that had protected the country from invasion in the past. The king's son and his friend King Rinkitink of another island are the only ones left on the island and must find and use the magic pearls to regain control of their country.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. Illus. by Neill, John R..
