Overview

Before "The Wizard of Oz" was a movie, it was a children's book. It was written in 1899 and published in 1900. This edition is a carefully re-constructed facsimile that is as close to the original as modern book printing technology will allow. If you are looking for the earliest release of this children's classic, be prepared to fork over thousands of dollars for the original edition, published as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, in 1900 by the George M. Hill Company . If you want a faithful reconstruction that will make your guests look twice and delight your kids, this is the edition you want.

Please note: as this is a facsimile edition, it will contain all of the flaws and imperfections of the original. This is by definition. Since the original images were engravings, which was a common necessity for book printers of the 1800s, the image quality itself will be different than what many modern readers expect. But, while it contains the flaws of the original, it also has its magic, as well.

As such, it will be a great way to read the story the way its authors originally intended it before Victor Fleming and Hollywood got a hold of it. It will also be a handsome addition to your bookshelf
