About this Item

Undated collection of fairy tales and childrens stories, none of which are credited to an author, apparently published about 1930. No editor named. White hardcover with red and black decorative scenes on front and back covers; 242 pages; decorative endpapers front and back. Contains the story "Little Black Sambo" now difficult to find because it was later deemed to be racist. It is, in fact, an innocent childrens story which is set not in Africa nor America, but in India. After being banned in some places in the 1960's and 1970's, the story was published under different titles and sometimes with the names of the characters changed. Also in this collection are such stories as Cinderella; Jack and the Beanstalk; Snow White; Sleeping Beauty; Hansel and Grethel; and Beauty and the Beast -- before Disney altered them. Covers and spine somewhat soiled from use; typical wear on corners and spine ends; front cover slightly bowed. Front and back hinges coming loose, but contents are tightly bound and complete. Former owner's name written on front endpaper, otherwise only a couple stray pencil marks in the book. A great reading copy, and apparently a rare book. Bookseller Inventory # 007068
