Notes

First edition, first printing, in the first state of both binding and text. The latter has the following points: the "O" in "Ozma" on p. 11, line five, which is lacking in later copies; the illustration p. 221 printed in colour; the advertisement p. 272 listing only two titles. Baum's third land of Oz story and the first to be consciously written as part of an ongoing series reunites Dorothy with the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and Princess Ozma and introduces the characters of Tik-Tok, the Hungry Tiger, the Yellow Hen and the Nome King.
