Overview

~~ includes all the original illustrations (over 100) by John R. Neill, many of them in color, and a new Preface by Oz expert and Eltanin Editor Joseph Nusbaum. ~~

From the Editor's Preface:

In 1907, Baum responded to countless readers' letters, clamoring for more tales about the Land of Oz. What had started as a stand-alone fairytale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, gave way to another stand-alone sequel in 1904, The Marvelous Land of Oz. But it is the third Oz book, Ozma of Oz, where Baum and his illustrating partner, John R. Neill, produce the first Oz book that establishes the indelible tone and formula for the rest of the series. The successful approach in Ozma of Oz combines the best of the first two Oz books, starting with the return of the uniquely "American" Dorothy - who was absent in the second book - and integrating some of the darker fantasy elements and realistic illustrations of the sequel.

~~ Ozma of Oz is the 3rd book in the Oz series. We (Eltanin Publishing) have also published:
~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (the 1st book in the series)
~ The Marvelous Land of Oz (the 2nd book in the series)

~ The Road to Oz (the 5th book in the series)

Gorgeous original illustrations, excellent formatting

I just downloaded both of this publisher's [Eltanin Publishing] Oz books, this one and The Marvelous Land of Oz. Both are beautifully formatted, a rarity in PubIt classics, and the original illustrations add so much to the value of the book. I collect vintage and antique children's classics, and one thing I miss with ebooks is the old illustrations, so these ebooks are like buried treasure to me! I can't wait for the rest!

These works are available in the public domain. You can get all the Oz books at Project G, including illustrated versions of most. BUT. It is all in the formatting. This review is for the Eltanin Publishing editions, which as of this writing has done the second and third books of the series (Marvelous Land and Ozma). They have done a masterful job in these two efforts. It is all about the illustrations...The Eltanin versions get it right.
