Heading: (San Fancisco Bulletin)
Title: Sunday Magazine supplement of the San Francisco Bulletin with two full pages about L.Frank Baum and the Oz characters,
Place Published: San Francisco
Date Published: 1737

8-pages supplement. Illustrated. 54.7x43 cm (21½x17").

The Oz characters grace the first page of the supplement, boldly headed "Here They Come! The Scarecrow and Tin Woodman, Jack Pumpkinhead, the Woggle Bug, the Animated Sawhorse, and the Gump..." On the fourth page the description continues, with seven drawings of the various characters and scenes flanking descriptions of Oz and various plot lines. A very rare excursion into the depths of L. Frank Baum‘s imagination, as revealed in a West Coast newspaper alongside articles about English royalty touring Europe, lurid American murder mysteries, formulas for the secret of life, and the proper care of eyebrows.

Due to the size and/or weight of this lot extra shipping and/or handling charges may apply.


Some darkening to paper, 2" edge tear to first leaf, a hole in last two leaves but not affecting the ones with the Oz article; very good.
