Royal historian of Oz". This Book. The servants of the Tin Woodman all wore tin helmets and tin breastplates and uniforms covered with tiny tin discs sewed closely together on silver cloth, so that their bodies sparkled as beautifully as did the tin castle-and almost as beautifully as did the Tin Woodman himself.

Afterword by Peter Glassman. The Tin Woodman of Oz. L. Frank Baum. This deluxe facsimile of the fifth Oz adventure reunites Dorothy and her friends for Princess Ozma's glorious birthday party.

Baum's Oz books had entered a trend of declining sales after 1910. The Tin Woodman of Oz reversed this trend; its first-year sales of 18,600 were enough to make it a "bestselling success. Significantly, the sales of earlier Oz titles also rebounded from previous declines, many selling 3000 copies that year, and two, The Marvelous Land of Oz (1904) and the previous year's The Lost Princess of Oz (1917), selling 4000 copies. 52 from his Oz books that year.

As with all Oz books, this twelfth one, The Tin Woodman of Oz is filled with adventure and amusement. Wordplay isn’t as common in this one, but when it’s there it’s lovely (for example, the Tin Soldier’s original name was Captain Fyter). For his 12th book in the Oz series, L. Frank Baum gives the limelight to a character that hasn't had a lot of it in the previous 11: our friend the Tin Woodman, the former Nick Chopper and the current emperor of the Winkies. Indeed, even the Scarecrow, another of the beloved original characters from the first book, has had more airtime in this series, even though he's been largely on the periphery of the storylines.

Through the kindness of Dorothy Gale of Kansas, afterward Princess Dorothy of Oz, an humble writer in the United States of America was once appointed Royal Historian of Oz, with the privilege of writing the chronicle of that wonderful fairyland.

The Tin Woodman (or Emperor Nicholas III of the House of Chopper), is a fictional character invented by L Frank Baum, author and creator of the Oz legacy. He is first introduced as a main character in Baum's first Oz book titled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published in 1900. He makes his debut appearance in the fifth chapter of the novel titled The Rescue of the Tin Woodman

L. FRANK BAUM "Royal Historian of Oz". Author of All the Oz Books. Illustrated by john r. The Reilly & Britton Co. Chicago.

The Tin Man and the Scarecrow are regaling each other with tales of past adventures in the Tin Man's castle in the Winkie Country when a Gillikin boy named Woot wanders into their presence. After he is fed and rested (which the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow, not being of blood and flesh, do not need), Woot asks the Tin Man how he became made of tin. The Tin Man tells Woot the story of how he had once been a flesh-and-blood woodman in love with a maiden named Nimmie Aimee. Woot suggests that since the Tin Man now has a kind and loving heart, it is his duty to find Nimmie Aimee and make her Empress of the Winkies. The Scarecrow agrees, so the three set off to search for the girl. Will they find her, and if they do will she still love the Tin Man?
The Tin Woodman, along with the Scarecrow and Woot the Wanderer, set off on a journey to find the Tin Woodman’s former love, Nimmie Amee. Along the way they have many adventures including meeting the Tin Woodman’s near twin, the Tin Soldier, and meet many old friends including Polychrome the Rainbow’s Daughter.

As with all Oz books, this twelfth one, The Tin Woodman of Oz is filled with adventure and amusement. Wordplay isn’t as common in this one, but when it’s there it’s lovely (for example, the Tin Soldier’s original name was Captain Fyter). I highly recommend this and all the Oz books to people of all ages.
For his 12th book in the Oz series, L. Frank Baum gives the limelight to a character that hasn't had a lot of it in the previous 11: our friend the Tin Woodman, the former Nick Chopper and the current emperor of the Winkies. Indeed, even the Scarecrow, another of the beloved original characters from the first book, has had more airtime in this series, even though he's been largely on the periphery of the storylines.

For the Tin Man's turn, Baum rightly addresses an unresolved issue from Nick's past: Whatever happened to that sweet Munchkin girl he fell in love with as a "meat" man, Nimmie Amee, and shouldn't he do right by her faithfulness to him amid his part-by-part transformation to a tin body, courtesy of the evil enchantment of the since-deceased Wicked Witch of the East? Shouldn't he reward Nimmie by marrying her, making her an empress, even though he doesn't have the same loving heart he used to as a flesh-and-blood man and doesn't really "love"-her-love-her these days?

A new character, a young lad named Woot the Wanderer, becomes so enthralled by the Tin Woodman's back story that he convinces the emperor, along with his best friend Scarecrow, to journey to Munchkin Country and find Nimmie Amee. And so the adventure begins.

Baum gets special praise in this one for explaining how Oz came to be a fairyland, as well as just why the Wicked Witch of the East shriveled up and scattered to dust when she had that fateful meeting with Dorothy's house.
There are no pictures in this edition at all. Most, maybe all, of the original editions did have some pictures, which I would have liked to have seen. Also, as with the other free editions in this series, there are many typographical errors, mainly misspellings. There is also the occasional bit of text that's randomly bold for no apparent reason. I suspect that a printed copy of the book was scanned and run through OCR, with no follow-up accuracy check.

The story itself is pretty good. Although all of this series is clearly written for children, it's entertaining enough for adults to enjoy reading as well. But as an adult, I couldn't help but notice that many of the characters in all of these Oz stories, including the central characters, are often conceited, arrogant, and rude, yet at the same time, quite polite about it.
Baum's 12th Oz book. While the stories had become a bit repetitive by this point, the introduction of new characters continues to entertain and there's something just so charming about these. They are, in every respect, American fairytales. If you like fantasy or have kids of any age, get these books.
This is a classic novel that goes with the rest of Baum's Oz books. However, I specifically viewed the sample pages before ordering this book because I wanted the one that had the Neill illustrations. Imagine my total disappointment when I received ONLY the words of the book with NO illustrations AT ALL! This book and "The Scarecrow of Oz" are the only books left to complete my set, and I want both of them to be the same as all my others, illustrations and all.
I love this story and the rest of the oz series. I honestly never knew they all had their own story and adventures. I didn't realize how arrogant the tin man and ScareCrow actually are! Kind of made me not like them but I couldn't stop reading this. The journey that they took along with a few friends was captivating and are we done yet? You do learn in this what goes around comes around and you don't always get what you want and somethings are better left alone.. also you can get a happy ending, might not be the one you wanted but you got one!
I downloaded this because I enjoyed the Oz series when I was in middle school. I just never got around to finishing the whole series. The plot contains a quest like most books in the Oz series. Many memorable characters from other books in the series appear throughout the plot. I found myself chuckling at the innocence of the characters throughout the book. I enjoyed this immensely for nostalgia's sake:)
It's part of Baum's series of Oz books, with the original illustrator. You will be able to find all of the original books, but if you want authenticity, make sure to look for the original illustrator. Denslow started, but then there were others that succeeded him.
