Light off Small Medium Large

A Faithful Record of the Remarkable Adventures of Dorothy

and Trot and the Wizard of Oz, together with the

Cowardly Lion, the Hungry Tiger and Cap’n Bill,

in their successful search for a Magical

and Beautiful Birthday Present for

Princess Ozma of Oz

by L. Frank Baum

“Royal Historian of Oz”

Curiously enough, in the events which have taken place in the last
few years in our “great outside world,” we may find incidents so
marvelous and inspiring that I cannot hope to equal them with stories
of The Land of Oz.

However, “The Magic of Oz” is really more strange and unusual than
anything I have read or heard about on our side of The Great Sandy
Desert which shuts us off from The Land of Oz, even during the past
exciting years, so I hope it will appeal to your love of novelty.

A long and confining illness has prevented my answering all the good
letters sent me–unless stamps were enclosed–but from now on I hope to
be able to give prompt attention to each and every letter with which
my readers favor me.

Assuring you that my love for you has never faltered and hoping the
Oz Books will continue to give you pleasure as long as I am able to
write them, I am

Yours affectionately,
L. FRANK BAUM,
“Royal Historian of Oz.”
