About this Item

Second issue of the first US edition, published in 1901. According to Barton, The Pictus Orbis Sambo, pages 116 - 118, the first US edition had the title and author lettering on the front cover in blue, matching the color of Sambo's pants in the illustration on the front board. The second issue has the title in black, and the third issue (1902) has a red cloth spine, as opposed to a beige cloth spine in the first and second issues. This copy is an unrestored original, with some wear at corners of boards. The rear endpapers show faint dampstains, and the last 5 or 6 pages have creases on the foredge side. The front hinge is slightly separated at the top 1" of the front endpapers, but the binding is tight. 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
