W. W. Denslow (1856-1915) was a prolific illustrator, cartoonist, and caricaturist, best remembered for his work in collaboration with author L. Frank Baum, especially his illustrations of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the first of the Oz books. An editorial cartoonist with a strong interest in politics, Denslow also illustrated his own books including Denslow's Mother Goose (1901), Denslow's Night Before Christmas (1902) and the 18-volume Denslow's Picture Books series (1903-4). The royalties from the print and stage versions of The Wizard of Oz were sufficient to allow Denslow to purchase Bluck's Island in Bermuda, and crown himself King Denslow I. However, he drank his money away, and he died in obscurity, of pneumonia.

From then until his death in 1943, Neill would illustrate over forty Oz books, including three he wrote himself. Today, his fabulous illustrations are synonymous with Oz.

HASH(0xa370bc24) out of 5 stars Original illustrations but... April 17 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had searched high and low for a set or series of the Oz books with the original illustrations as I had read from the library as a child. This was the best and most affordable option. It does contain the original illustrations and the hard cover is good. My only qualm is that the printing is somewhat inferior. There are some pages printed at a slightly off angle or with some words missing. It is perfectly readable but not of the highest quality.

HASH(0xa3f5caa4) out of 5 stars I have to say that I was very disappointed when I received volume I March 7 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on

I have been looking for a publisher that publishes all of Baum's Oz books with illustrations. I thought I had found it with this version by Wilder Publications. I have to say that I was very disappointed when I received volume I. It appears that the pages are scans of original printings. That could be okay, except many of the pages have the white balance/contrast off, so the background of the printed page is a dingy grey. Other pages were either scanned poorly or the printer was running out of toner when my book was being printed.

The first book in this volume has clear scans for the text only pages and proper white balance/contrast. The text has a very slight "fuzz" to it that makes it look like a scan rather than an original printing of fresh text, but it is still readable. There are occasional issues with pages with pictures (the image is fuzzy). The second book in the volume is where it looks like there was a toner issue with printing. The text is gray and the images are speckled. Some pages are barely readable the text is so faint. The third book of the volume has white balance/contrast issues and the background of some pages are grey. This is especially troublesome when the text is also grey from the low toner issue.

All in all, I'm very disappointed in this volume and I will not be purchasing the other volumes of the series from this publisher.

HASH(0xa3f5cce4) out of 5 stars If you want a physical copy, this is one to consider! Dec 30 2013

Really happy with these books. They seem sturdy, are illustrated, and with being paperback/good quality, seem kid friendly. I spent quite a bit of time online looking for the best version. I didn't realize this originally, but since it's not copyrighted (or something along those lines), anyone can publish this. One review of a different set said part of one of the books was missing! I wanted a complete version with pictures (which this has) that wasn't $200 on ebay. There was a hardback version online that looked nicer and was cheaper (especially for the whole set) but it wasn't illustrated (which was really important since my sister's kids range from 4 to 10. I ordered the first two volumes for my sister's kids for Christmas and my sister was thrilled to receive them. Buying all of the versions at once would be pricey, but if you space it out over time (Christmas, birthdays) it's not too bad. We grew up having our mother read to us so I'm happy my sister can carry on that tradition. All that being said, if you own a kindle, you can buy the whole series (illustrated) for $0.99 (which I did yesterday for myself lol). If you want a physical copy, these books are definitely the way to go. But if you or the receiver own a kindle or tablet, I'd definitely go that route.
