WOGGLE-BUG BOOK

BAUM,L.FRANK. THE WOGGLE-BUG BOOK. Chicago: Reilly & Britton 1905. Folio, (11x15"). Green cloth spine, stiff pictorial card covers with yellow stippled background and the title in yellow on rear cover, [48]p. Covers and pages with the usual soil and 2 corners of cover repaired else internally VG clean, overall VG. 1st ed. secondary binding (Bibliographia Oziana 1988 ed. p.78). According to the Schiller catalogue (#138) this was most likely "issued to increase interest in Reilly & Britton's major publication of the previous season, the Marvelous Land of Oz and possibly also to promote the forthcoming musical comedy, The Woggle Bug." The book features the most fanciful and fabulous full page and smaller color illustrations by IKE MORGAN to accompany a tale that continues the story line begun in a newspaper series entitled Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land Of Oz. A large, fragile book and consequently not many intact copies have survived.
