On August 1, 1900, the Library's Copyright Office received from L. Frank Baum this hand-written copyright application with required title page deposit showing the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman. Baum filed the copyright papers for many of his works personally and showed an appreciation of the importance of protecting his intellectual property rights. After the success of his books, Baum frequently signed autographs "Ozily yours."


W. W. Denslow and L. Frank Baum (Wizard of Oz Author), W. W. (William Wallace) Denslow (Wizard of Oz illustrator) (1856-1915) was a well-known newspaper cartoonist and poster designer when he illustrated Baum's Father Goose, His Book (1899). Following its success, the two men teamed up for Baum's next work, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Because Baum and Denslow each thought that his own contribution was the main reason for the success of the book, their relationship deteriorated. Denslow illustrated only one more Baum book, and after he designed costumes for the 1902 stage version of the Wizard his collaboration with Baum ended.

"I feel wise indeed said the Scarecrow"

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On this Day August 15 in 1939 The Wizard of Oz premieres The earliest "Oz" film series were produced by Baum in 1908 and 1914 and twice featured the young silent film actress Mildred Harris. Another series that Baum had nothing to do with, aside from a contractual agreement, appeared in 1910, which may have featured Bebe Daniels as Dorothy. Larry Semon, in collaboration with Frank Joslyn Baum, created a rather well-known but unsuccessful version in 1925.

The most famous Wizard of Oz adaptation is the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, featuring Judy Garland as Dorothy (this, in turn, has been adapted into two separate stage productions, first by Frank Gabrielson (who wrote the 1960 version of The Land of Oz for Shirley Temple), and more recently by the Royal Shakespeare Company's John Kane), but the first stage production, in 1902, used a score that is now forgotten, and not the one heard in the 1939 film, though there have been attempts, mostly in Florida, to revive it.

Early film versions of the Wizard of Oz include a 1914 film produced by Baum himself entitled His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz, which incorporates several incidents from the book—the Scarecrow is first seen hanging on a pole, from which Dorothy rescues him, and the Tin Man is discovered standing rusted in the forest—and a 1925 film, Wizard of Oz, featuring Oliver Hardy as the Tin Woodsman. The most recent adaptation of the novel is Disney's 2005 TV movie The Muppets' Wizard of Oz.

Love the Wizard of Oz. These are great images. So many kids grew up watching this show, and also the original Peter Pan, which I think is another classic.
