How did Merry Go Round in Oz fare financially? I haven't heard. I know Neill's books were declining in sales, and Snow and Cosgrove were retired as Royal Historians by Reilly & Lee because of low sales of their books, but I can't seem to find out anything about Merry Go Round.

From The Oz Scrapbook p.82:   

"Regnery publicized the book heavily and even revived The Ozmapolitan for the first time since 1928, but Merry Go Round did not sell well enough to justify an Oz revival."
