The Great Book of Records is an enormous book that records everything that happens the moment it happens.
The Book of Records is in the possession of Glinda who knows of everything that happens in the Land of Oz and all the world. The smallest things and the biggest things are all recorded in this book: from a child stomping its foot in anger to a city burning down. Glinda reads the Record Book every day, and although her duties are confined to assisting those who inhabit the Land of Oz, she is always interested in what takes place in the unprotected outside world as well.
Later, it was stolen along with Ozma and several other magical items. Without the Great Book Of Records the characters were unable to know what had happened. At the end it was recovered, along with Ozma. (The Lost Princess of Oz)
