As most of you know that I follow almost every copy of WOndierful Wizard of Oz that shows on the market. I would like to warn you about specific copy that is currently listed on ebay indicated that it is signed by Frank Baum.
Originally this book was listed on ebay with proper description below and it was sold at the end of 2011 for $1500 due to book have various issues.
Bnding is lightly soiled, especially at lower front corner, bumped corners with wearthrough at lower. The spine has fraying along edges and wear, fraying and small tears at ends. It appears that the rear panel may have been reglued. There is a faint owner notation on the front endpaper, "John A. Davis Christmas 1901". Some seperation between pages 128-129 but still holding firm.
