Dream sets of the first edition Wizard of Oz books series.

There are many Oz books collectors, but only few can afford the luxury of owning a complete set of all 14 L. Frank Baum Oz books.

Complete sets of 1st editions varies in price based upon a books edition, state and condition. Prices varies from $20,000 for a set in average condition to up to $200,000 for a set of all 14 books being all 1st edition / 1st state and Near Fine / Fine condition.

I have put together a few sets with explanation of books in these sets

The above set consists of 12 books out of 14 being 1st edition and 1st state copies. Four titles ( Ozma of Oz, Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, Road to Oz and Patchwork Girl of Oz) are in addition to be being a 1st state also contain all the necessary points of the 1st printing.

For example, Ozma of Oz and Dorothy have the name of publisher Reilly & Britton Co. at the bottom of the spine; Road to Oz has the caption under illustration on page 129 and Patchwork Girl of Oz has the overlapping C on page 35.

The Marvelous Land of Oz is 1st edition 2nd state and Wonderful Wizard of Oz is First edition / 2nd state.

All books are complete without missing pages or plates and each book in this set is from Good to Very Good condition.

My estimate for this particular set is worth $50,000. Check this link for detail photos of books in this set

All five books in the above image are unique in certain way.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is first edition / first state in B binding complete with 24 required color plates is worth close to $80,0000.

The Marvelous Land of Oz is first edition / first state copy, and in this condition, is $12,000.

The New Wizard of Oz seconnd edition / first state copy is $5,0000.

The Tin Woodman of Oz first edition / first state is worth $5000 and The Rinkitink In Oz first edition / first state is $3500.

You might ask who can afford to pay $200,000 for Oz books? To answer that question , I will name just a few Oz fans and you can judge by yourself. They are Michael Jackson, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey just to name a few.

I have resources available to obtain the best copies of the Oz series.
