Baum, L. Frank: The Emerald City of Oz (illus). v1. 24 Jul 2020

The Emerald City of Oz

By L. Frank Baum (1856–1919)

Illustrated by John R. Neill (1877–1943)

With 52 black-and-white and 16 color illustrations, illustrated chapter heads, alternate cover image, end paper images, Author’s Introduction, and a Map of the countries of Oz.

First published in 1910. The text is in the public domain worldwide. Illustrations are in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life+70” or less, and in the USA.

----------------------
Dorothy Gale and her Uncle Henry and Aunt Em come to live in Oz permanently. While they tour through the Quadling Country, the wicked Nome King and his evil allies are tunneling beneath the desert to invade Oz, intending to enslave its people. How Oz is saved is an ending that will amaze and delight you.

This was originally intended to be the last book in the series.

Lyman Frank Baum (May 15, 1856 – May 6, 1919) was an American author chiefly famous for his children’s books, particularly The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and its sequels. He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, plus 41 other novels, as well as many short stories, poems, and plays. He made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and the nascent medium of film; the 1939 adaptation of the first Oz book would become a landmark of 20th-century cinema. His works anticipated such century-later commonplaces as television, augmented reality, laptop computers (The Master Key), wireless telephones (Tik-Tok of Oz), women in high-risk and action-heavy occupations (Mary Louise in the Country), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing (Aunt Jane’s Nieces at Work).

Even while he was alive, Baum was styled as “the Royal Historian of Oz” to emphasize the concept that Oz is an actual place. The illusion created was that characters such as Dorothy and Princess Ozma related their adventures in Oz to Baum themselves, by means of wireless telegraph.

For over a century, readers of all ages have loved these stories, and many of the Oz characters and situations have become a part of popular culture.
