Oz in the News 1.24.15

Copyright_page_of_The_Wonderful_Wizard_of_Oz,_1899Local Collector Finds The Ultimate Piece  Last year we told you about Justin Ell–a person that most would easily consider North Dakota’s biggest fan of the Wizard of Oz. On top of over 2000 other pieces of memorabilia–his latest addition is a book that is 115 years old. This copy of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published in 1900 and is where the whole story began. “This is the crown jewel of my collection.  It’s by far the best.  I thought that this would have been the last piece I would ever get of the Wizard of Oz.  I didn’t want to pay the money to get it.  And then I had to, I couldn’t pass it up.” He didn’t tell us how much the original was but he says he will probably be working until his 90’s to pay it off.
