Vintage Children's Book: The Wonderful Wizard of OZ, Part Two

Here we are with part two of the first edition of The Wonderful Wizard of OZ. The resource for these images is The Library of Congress in the Digitized Print Materials from The Rare Book and Special Collections Room. Anyone can access  this book and many others. The images are also available in high quality and can be printed out. That means you can print out a book in its entirety to read, use as a resource or even print out an illustration to frame. Nice!




W.W. Denslow's seahorse signature was famous. Incidentally, L. Frank Baum and Denslow had a disagreement over copyright issues, ending their work arrangement and Denslow did not illustrate any more of the Wizard of OZ books.
