Miniature hardcover bound in black cloth; one of about 1000 copies, this being number 117; signed by the author; 2.5 x 2 inches; 185 pages; illustrated. Boards are ever so slightly bowed, printed on very thin yellow paper, clean and sound, silver booksellers label in rear from Lilliput, Tokyo, with old price in Japanese yen. This miniature reproduction of the original, published in 1958. From the original promotion: "Everyone knows that L. Frank Baum wrote one of the great children's books of all time, The Wizard of Oz, and many people are aware that he was the author of a host of other children's tales of a distinctly American genre. But how many of even his most devoted fans have heard about his lively theatrical career? Here, for the first time, is the story of the stage ventures of L. Frank Baum; all these spectacular productions-the sensational successes-the dismal failures-and the shows that never were produced at all. Also, for the first time, here are three all but forgotten scenarios from his own pen (Maid of Athens, King of Gee Whiz, Pipes O' Pan). Furthermore, this book offers a complete checklist of all Baum's works including many hitherto unrecorded items, valuable details and first edition points. All this, and a wealth of rare posters, stagebills, and other Baumiana reproduced herein, will make The Musical Fantasies of L. Frank Baum a welcome, if not indispensible, addition to any library.
