Welcome to my blog! If you're looking in for the first time, items are posted in a haphazard way, but the Oz series is scattered throughout in chronological order. Do check back in - I always have an eye open for an Oz item, and as I find more I'll share them here!

A few days ago I mentioned another bookplate drawing by John R. Neill in my collection. This one is again from 1906, and bears a striking resemblance to work Neill did that year for John Dough and the Cherub, another book by L. Frank Baum. Pictured below is a first edition of the book.
This fellow looks like he could belong to the Brotherhood of Failings, or perhaps be a relative of the Kinglet. I've included a couple illustrations from the book to show the resemblance.
