Catalogue Note

A rare long inscription by Baum. The full inscription reads "My Dear Ruth: Here is a story of true and faithful love. The moral is to be loyal to your desires, that your steadfast quest - even if it fails to get the whole gown - will result in your winning a neck-tie, at least. Always yours L. Frank Baum."
