Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, 1908 ed. facsimile, ~1974, L. Frank Baum
This is pretty much the book where you have to give up on the idea of strict Oz continuity, as the Wizard’s role in deposing Ozma somehow never manages to come up.

The back-cover is practically begging for an “I Haz A Sad” caption…

    Personally, I’m glad Baum retconned Ozma’s origin. I was one of the young readers who objected to the whole idea: “He is a good man, though a bad wizard.”
