McLoughlin Brothers, New York 1874 - (Black Interest) THE TEN LITTLE MULLIGAN GUARDS. New York: McLoughlin Brothers, (1874). Oblong 8vo - 10-13/16" x 9". Color pictorial wrappers in extremely bright and nice condition, with previous owner's name written lightly in pencil at the top of the front wrapper, two small corner creases to the front wrapper and a 1-1/2" split to the bottom of the spine. The rear wrapper is printed with an advertisement for "New Picture Books For Little Children" published by McLoughlin Brothers, Publishers. [24]pp. including wrappers. The story follows as the Mulligan Guards march along, losing one Guard on each page, until there are none, in Ten Little Indians fashion. The book can be read as a story in verse or used for playing "The Game Of The Ten Little Mulligans," instructions for which are given on leaf [12]. A musical score accompanies the story. The highlights of the book are the thirteen beautiful chromolithographs which are printed on one side of the page only that are found in the book. They are really astounding in their artistry, bold use of color and subject matter. There is one black member of the Mulligan Guards that appears in all but one of the chromolithographs. He is refered to by a racially derogatory term that fortunately is no longer as widely used, nor as accepted today as it was when the book was published. There is a small area of damp stain on the inside of the front wrapper but all other pages are bright, clean and free of blemishes. This is a wonderful book in amazingly good condition. The condition of the book is NEAR FINE. Rare. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
