Item Description: London Grant Richards 1899, 1899. Rare First Edition. Illustrated in color throughout with twenty-seven full-page illustrations by the author, engraved on wood and color-printed by Edmund Evans. 16mo, publisher’s original light green cloth lettered and decorated in dark green, the upper cover and spine with ruled borders and vertical stripes and author and title printed in compartments. Morocco backed clamshell box with the spine printing in gilt. viii, 57, [1, blank], [1, printer’s imprint], [1, blank] A very nice copy, light aging and touch-ups to the binding, a very well preserved copy with little evident wear, corners, head and tail all in very nice condition, the textblock clean and tight. IMPORTANT AND RARE FIRST EDITION AND A VERY WELL PRESERVED COPY OF THIS CHILDREN’S CLASSIC. Bannerman wrote her stories to entertain her own children. LITTLE BLACK SAMBO was their favorite. The author never intended the book for publication, but through the encouragement of her children and friends the manuscript was shown to E.V. Lucas who agreed to publish it as the fourth title in his series of ‘The Dumpy Books for Children’" (Schiller, p. 381) Together with Beatrix Potter, Helen Bannerman established the genre of children’s books that gave pictures and text equal importance. Very few copies of the original printing have survived, and of the copies known, most have been badly worn because the small book was unable to withstand the constant handling of children. "Should a census eventually be attempted, there would probably be fewer copies located than of the notoriously rare and suppressed 1865 Alice" (Schiller, p. 386). Bookseller Inventory # 19771

Item Description: 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. Bookseller Inventory # 32028

Item Description: Grant Richards, 1899. First edition. 16mo. Dumpy Book no. 4. Green cloth with dark green lines and lettering. A very good copy indeed. The covers are bright and clean, with a little bubbling to the spine. 57 pages of this delightful story of the little black boy named Sambo and his encounters with the tigers in the jungle. Bright, colourful illustrations by the author. This story was written during the author's journey to India. Her intention was to present the tale and its charming pictures to her children, who had remained at home in Scotland. Like so many of these classic children's tales an enthusiastic reception to the story led to its being published by Grant Richards as the fourth in their series of "Dumpy Books". Over the years the story has been at the centre of much controversy, criticised for promoting racist views. The author's intentions, however, were simply to create an amusing children's tale and as the story is still popular with children over a century later she has certainly achieved this. This book has earned its place on the list of the most important and influential pieces of children's literature and is now a greatly sought after and rare item. Bookseller Inventory # 27882

FIRST EVER U.S. APPEARANCE of BANNERMAN'S LITTLE BLACK SAMBO in the U.S. in FIRST EDITION / FIRST STATE +++ FIRST PRINTING of 1903/4 SECOND, LARGER EDITION ! ____________________________- 1. FIRST AMERCIAN EDITION / FIRST STATE, 1ST U.S. APPEARANCE of "The STORY Of LITTLE BLACK SAMBO"!!

Per Yuill (p.3), "by 1900 Little Black Sambo had been published in the U.S. by Stokes. who had purchased the rights from Grant Richards. No remuneration went to Bannerman." * Note: There are no dates in these Original American Black Sambo editions, because Helen Bannerman had sold the Publishing rights to Sambo in England to Grant Richards, who promptly proceeded to not give her any royalties when the book took off in sales. So she refused to give her permission, as the author, to any copyright in the U.S. for Richards or Stokes! It was never copyrighted in the States -- thus the numerous Pirated Editions beginning as early as 1905. **According to Barton, The Pictus Orbis Sambo, pages 116-118, the first U.S. edition had the title and author lettering on the covers in pale blue, matching the color of Sambo's pants in the illustrations on the two boards. The second issue (1901) has the title in black as only change. & the third issue (1902/3) has a red cloth spine, as opposed to a tan buckram cloth spine in the first and second issues.** __________________________________ Thus, This TRUE FIRST PRINTING, FIRST STATE BUCKRAM Bound is a SOLID EXAMPLE, Complete in 56 numbered pages (did not include blank reverses in count) with all 27 Color Plates present.

Item Description: Stokes, New York, 1900. hardcover. Book Condition: very good. Bannerman, Helen (illustrator). First. Very scarce in any condition, this is a rather nice copy complete with all 27 illustrations. First published in London by Grant Richards who apparently did not properly compensate the author when sales were surprisingly strong. They transferred the American rights to Stokes, but because Bannerman felt mis-treated she refused permission to print in the States and thus all early American printings lack copyright information. This version has all points of the true first American: size and color of the cloth spine along with illustrations on both covers with lettering in the the same shade of pale blue as Sambo's shorts. -- Pictus Orbis Sambo 116-18. Frontispiece, title, and 3 page introduction followed by 56 single-sided pages, with text pages facing the illustrations so there are back-to-back blanks throughout. 16mo, light brown cloth-backed glazed pictorial boards (ghost of some red pencil scribbles on front cover; several pages with soft or slightly bent corners and one tear in margin of text page but otherwise quite clean and solid; un-printed spine has been neatly hand lettered). New York: Frederick A. Stokes, no date, [1900]. First printing of the first American edition. Very good. Bookseller Inventory # 242018

Item Description: New York. Frederick A. Stokes Company., 1901. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. [no date on title page or copyright page] 1901 edition 56 numbered pages. Half the pages are blank – two printed page followed by two blank pages, all the way through. Each page of text faces a full color illustration. Hardcover. Pictorial cover. Illustration in the front cover shows Sambo within a black oval. Lettering on the front cover is black. The back cover is blank. Spine is brown (tan) cloth. Binding good and tight. Pages clean, text and illustrations bright. Previous owner’s name “Bradbury” written in pencil on the front endpaper. Same name “DeWitt H. Bradbury, New York City, 1919” written in pencil right over the author’s name on the title page (in pencil). Finally, the note “Columbia Univ Book Store .45c paid July 1919” written on the inside of the back cover. Google-books locates a DeWitt H. Bradbury as an alum of Auburn (NY) Seminary and professor of education at Tarkio College in Missouri. The citation is from the 1918-1919 edition of the Auburn Seminary Record. This copy has the 3 page “Dumpy Book” preface at the front. Remarkably good condition. No children’s marks or evidence of heavy use. The condition is so good that I have been the chief doubter even within my own bookstore as to this being the 1901 edition, but the evidence is overwhelming. Some slight wear to corners of the front cover. Remains of penciled price of 45 cents (erased) on first page. A really very wonderful copy. Sambo was first published in the US in 1900. That edition had blue lettering on the cover. The 1901 edition (this one) had black lettering. The 1902 edition has a red spine. Sambo has been controversial from the first. It is an English Indian story and while some claim that racial overtones were added later when it was Americanized, it seems fairly clear that even the original Indian edition was (to put it lightly) uncomplimentary of darker skinned people. It has, curiously, been printed and reprinted dozens of times in the last century. Bookseller Inventory # Fred-W469

The picture of Sambo on the front cover has slight loss of color (small scratches) at the lower portion of his face. The book is square and fairly tight, with no names or other markings anywhere in the text. All 27 original illustrations are present and brightly colored. Very slight wear to the cloth spine ends, and both exterior gutters are a little darkened, probably from binder's glue. In all, a very good, unrestored copy of this misunderstood and misinterpreted classic. Bookseller Inventory # 019860
