BIBLIOGRAPHIA OZIANA, A CONCISE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CHECKLIST OF THE OZ BOOKS BY L. FRANK BAUM AND HIS SUCCESSORS.
Hanff, Peter E. & Douglas G. Greene
Reprint of the revised and enlarged second edition from the original published in 1976. Bibliographia Oziana by Douglas G. Greene and Peter E. Hanff serves as the standard reference work that sorts out the extremely complex printing history of each of the original forty Oz books by L. Frank Baum and his six successors. In addition, it includes full descriptions of Oz-related works by the same authors. The descriptions of each variant are clear and concise, but conform to general accepted principles of bibliographical description. The 136 photographic illustrations complement the textual descriptions, making Bibliographia Oziana particularly helpful to those who are new to the field. Distributed for the International Wizard of Oz Club.
