    One of the Rarest Survivals from the World of Oz, with Original Waddles Intact

    L. Frank Baum. The Wizard of Oz Waddle Book. New York: Blue Ribbon Books, [1934].

    First edition, second state with rounded spine and no publisher's imprint at the foot of the spine; the waddles are detached from the stubs in the binding. Waddles are as new, in their original cards and laid into the book at the points at which they originally appeared. Quarto. 208, [3, instructions] pages.

    Publisher's green cloth with a color pictorial cover label. Hinges a bit shaken and cracked as usual, else a fine copy. This copy includes all the rare waddles, the yellow brick road ramp, the original envelope holding the ramp, and even the original metal clips that hold the waddles upright. Also included is the original wraparound band at the rear that holds the envelope in place (though now split at the bottom). It is quite rare to find the waddles present and in unused condition. A remarkable survival in fine condition.

    Hanff and Green, pp. 35-36.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
