In 1976, the International Wizard of Oz Club published Bibliographia Oziana: A Concise Bibliographical Checklist of the Oz Books by L. Frank Baum and His Successors, a pioneering reference work for collectors of the original Oz books. Now, more than four decades later, the Oz Club has published the long-awaited companion volume, Bibliographia Baumiana.
This comprehensive bibliography of the non-Oz books by L. Frank Baum goes into exquisite detail about every known printing of every book submitted for publication during his lifetime, enough to satisfy the most particular researcher, collector, book seller, or book restorer. Introductory material in each section provides biographical and historical context for each of Baum’s literary projects, and the bibliographical material is supplemented by 48 pages of color plates, an extensive set of appendices, and a full index.
Smyth-sewn for durability and printed on 60-pound acid-free stock, Bibliographia Baumiana is available in both hardcover and paperback. The hardcover edition is bound in dark green cloth stamped in gilt, with a white dust jacket printed in dark green and purple. The paperback edition is bound in white cardstock printed in dark green and purple on pale green and pale blue backgrounds. (Click on the cover images to see them at a larger size.)
