    I never knew maths didn't suck!

    Gotta piece together bits of description from abebooks and biblio but it really looks like it's
    all there;

    The Reilly & Britton Co., 1907, Original Cloth. First State, with all points of issue called for:
    "The Reilly & Britton Co." on spine
    "O" in Ozma present on 5th line, p. 11
    p. 221 in color
    publisher's advertisement facing half-title offers two titles: "Land of Oz," & "John Dough and The Cherub"
    colored plates throughout with pictorial endpapers
    270 pages

    The cover is faded, spine cracked, bumped corners, but the pages are perfect and still tightly
    bound with no names or doodles. Found it in a small antique shop on a trip to Lake of the Ozarks.
    :dance:


    Nice!
