Baum, L. Frank; illustrated by John R. Neill. The Road to Oz. Chicago: The Reilly & Lee Co., 1909, later printing. 261 pages, about 9 1/4" by 7", large hardbound book, red cloth covers, fraying at corners and spine ends, lightly scuffed pictorial past on, endpapers broken at hinge, a few soil marks on pages, internally good. Illustrated in black and white. Presentation page from the Worcester Sunday Telegram dated Feb. 15, 1935. Baum wrote this book in response to many requests from children for more Oz stories. "There are some characters in this book that ought to win your love. I'm very fond of the shaggy man myself, and I think you will like him too. As for Polychrome -- the Rainbow's Daughter -- and stupid little Button-Bright, they seem to have brought a new element of fun into these Oz stories, and I am glad I discovered them." [from the Preface by the author.]
