STORY OF LITTLE BLACK SAMBO
- BANNERMAN,HELEN. LITTLE BLACK SAMBO. Lond:Grant Richards 1899. 16mo (3 1/8 x 5"), green striped cloth, vi-viii, 57p., cloth covers soiled very slightly, near fine. First edition of this fourth title in the Dumpy Book series with color illustrations engraved on wood and printed by EDMUND EVANS. Written by Bannerman during a long train ride, it was immediately successful and went into several editions within the first year of publication. Aside from creating the now controversial characters of Sambo and his parents, the books was also revolutionary for its small size designed for small hands and may very well have influenced Beatrix Potter in designing her small format books. This is a nice copy of a rare children's classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
