Baum, L. Frank: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (illus). v2. 14 Jul 2020

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

By L. Frank Baum (1856–1919)

Illustrated by William W. Denslow (1856–1915)

With 136 mono-color and 23 multi-color illustrations, Author’s Introduction, and a Map of Oz.


First published in 1900, this book is in the public domain worldwide.

----------------------
It is in this book that Oz is “discovered.” A little farm girl named Dorothy and her pet dog, Toto, are swept away into the Land of Oz by a Kansas cyclone. Upon her arrival, she is hailed as a sorceress, liberates a living Scarecrow, meets a man made entirely of tin, and befriends a Cowardly Lion. But all Dorothy really wants to know is how to get home again. The ruler of Oz, the great Wizard who resides in the Emerald City, may be the only one powerful enough to help her.

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. (“I don’t think we’re in Kansas any more!”)

Available in two-volume “high-rez” with images based on 1100 x 1500px, or single-volume “low-rez” based on 800 x 1100px.
