- BANNERMAN,HELEN. LITTLE BLACK SAMBO. Lond:Grant Richards 1899. 16mo (3 1/8 x 5"), green striped cloth, vi-viii, 57p., spine faded and very slightly soiled, 2 pages printed close to margin else near fine, tight and clean. THIS COPY INSCRIBED BY A BANNERMAN FAMILY MEMBER, DATED NOVMBER 1899! 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]
