Title: The Land of Oz: A Sequel to the Wizard of Oz
Author: L. Frank Baum - Lyman Frank Baum was an American author of children's books, best known for writing "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." He wrote thirteen novel sequels, nine other fantasy novels, and a host of other works (55 novels in total, plus four "lost" novels, 82 short stories, over 200 poems, an unknown number of scripts, and many miscellaneous writings), and made numerous attempts to bring his works to the stage and screen. His works predicted such century-later commonplaces as television, laptop computers ("The Master Key"), wireless telephones ("Tik-Tok of Oz"), women in high risk, action-heavy occupations ("Mary Louise in the Country"), and the ubiquity of advertising on clothing ("Aunt Jane's Nieces at Work").

Title: Annual Reports of the Bureau of American Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution 1879-1929
Author: uncredited author
Publisher: Government Printing Office
City: Washington, D. C.
Year: 1879-1929
Printing Information: First Edition
Binding Style: Hardcover
Width: 8.25" Height: 11.75"
Book Details: Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution began publication in 1881, though the Bureau at the time (and its reports) did not have "American" in its title. That was added to the series in 1897. The reports ceased with number 48 of the new series, published for 1930/31.

The Bureau of American Ethnology (or BAE, originally, Bureau of Ethnology) was established in 1879 by an act of Congress for the purpose of transferring archives, records and materials relating to the Indians of North America from the Interior Department to the Smithsonian Institution. But from the start, the bureau's visionary founding director, John Wesley Powell, promoted a broader mission: "to organize anthropologic research in America." Under Powell, the bureau organized research intensive multi-year projects; sponsored ethnographic, archaeological and linguistic field research; initiated publications series (most notably its Annual Reports and Bulletins); and promoted the fledgling discipline of anthropology. It prepared exhibits for expositions and collected anthropological artifacts for the Smithsonian United States National Museum. In addition, the BAE was the official repository of documents concerning American Indians collected by the various US geological surveys, especially the Geographical and Geological Survey of the Rocky Mountain Region and the Geological Survey of the Territories. It developed a manuscript repository, library and illustrations section that included photographic work and the collection of photographs.

In 1897, the Bureau of Ethnology's name changed to the Bureau of American Ethnology to emphasize the geographic limit of its interests, although its staff briefly conducted research in US possessions such as Hawaii and the Philippines. In 1965, the BAE merged with the Smithsonian's Department of Anthropology to form the Smithsonian Office of Anthropology within the United States National Museum (now the Department of Anthropology, National Museum of Natural History). In 1968, the SOA archives became the National Anthropological Archives.
Condition / Notes: This is a rare contiguous collection of this landmark publication of the entity that in effect founded American anthropology (especially linguistics and ethnology) when there were no advanced studies in the field and almost no full-time anthropologists. This collection includes the scarce first issues, with their impressive variety of illustrative material.

Antique set is bound in green library binding, with black lettering and white paper call-number label taped to lower portion of spines. Books show light shelfwear. Library stamps are visible on ends of text blocks, front flyleaves and title pages. Title pages also bear call number written in pencil. No other institutional markings or attachments are present. Volumes are lavishly illustrated with (tissue-guarded/color) plates, photographic plates, double-page diagrams and illustrations, (fold-out) maps, and a great variety of in-text illustrations.
