. I AM THE WORLDS LARGEST COLLECTOR OF L. FRANK BAUM BOOKS WITH OVER 600 FIRST EDITION AND FIRST STATE BOOKS IN MARVELOUS CONDITION HAVING COLLECTED FOR OVER 30 YEARS. ANY INQUIRIES INTO ANY FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE BOOK

Simplified, first edition means all copies of a book (any book, not just Oz) printed any time from one type setting without any changes.

A state is a variation in a book, but still within the same printing. When books were manually printed, minor changes may have been made in the middle of a print run. For example, if after a number of copies are printed, the printer sees that a word had been misspelled. The type for that word alone would be changed. A new printing would not be necessary for something this minor. Copies before the correction would be considered the first state. Copies after the correction would be considered the second state.

If a book doesn't change it is still the same edition. So, if an author changes the text, or if the pages need to be re-done for a paperback's smaller size, then substantial changes have been made and it's a new edition.

When the publisher runs out of copies and prints new ones without making changes, then the edition is NOT changed, but now it is a new printing.

I have learned to regard fame as a will-o-the-wisp which, when caught, is not worth the possession; but to please a child is a sweet and lovely thing that warms one's heart and brings its own reward.
Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal.
  • Now we can cross the Shifting Sands.
    • Last words, to his wife Maud (6 May 1919), as quoted in Uncovering Lives : The Uneasy Alliance of Biography and Psychology (1994) by Alan C. Elms, p. 154







I believe that dreams — day dreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain machinery whizzing — are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to create, to invent, and therefore to foster civilization
