By Laura Bancroft, pseudonym of L. Frank Baum, illustrated by Maginel Wright Enright
First and only edition of Baum's pseudonymously published Twinkle Tales.
Fine in very good jacket.
TWINKLE AND CHUBBINS
The text contains all 6 of the Twinkle Tales that first appeared pseudonymously in 1906: Mr. Woodchuck, Bandit Jim Crow, Prairie Dog Town, Prince Mud-Turtle, Twinkle's Enchantment and Sugar-Loaf Mountain. Illustrator Enright was Frank Lloyd Wright's sister. This is an incredible copy of a very scarce Baum title, extremely rare in the pictorial dust jacket.
