Lime green with orange & yellow illustrated cover. There is a number on the bottom of the spine though I'm not sure if it was in an actual library. The spine is shifted and the cover has moderate heavy soil staining. Small fray at bottom spine corner (tiny one to top spine corner). pages mostly clean with some scattered mild soil and there is a mild water page ripple at top with a top edge water mark to the pages. Last rear illustration is colored, and the rear endpaper has some coloring at the bottom edge (mostly).Just over 9 x 6-1/2 with 340 pages. Rear section advertises that there are five more Oz books and details them on separate pages. I'm putting it as Fair (+) condition.
