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., 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.

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

Item Description: London Grant Richards, 1899. First Edition of "The Story of Little Black Sambo" BANNERMAN, Helen. The Story of Little Black Sambo. London: Grant Richards, 1899. First edition. Sixteenmo. viii, 57, [1, blank], [1, printer’s imprint], [1, blank] pp. Twenty-seven full-page illustrations by the author, engraved on wood and color-printed by Edmund Evans. No. 4 of The Dumpy Books for Children. Original pale green cloth lettered and stamped in dark green with ruled borders and vertical stripes. Tips bumped and rubbed and spine slightly rubbed. Overall, a very good copy of this very rare item, usually found in much worse condition. In a custom cream cloth chemise and quarter morocco clamshell. "Helen Bannerman (1862-1946) wrote this story during a long railway journey to India, after having left two small daughters to be educated in her native Scotland. 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). When first published in October 1899, The Story of Little Black Sambo was a "revolutionary-style picture book. Compared with its contemporary school of illustrators—Crane, Greenaway, and Caldecott—the pictures are simple yet bold. The format of the book encouraged its handling by young owners, and the pages alternated between text and illustrations in a manner very appealing and appropriate to its compact size. It even seems probable that Beatrix Potter’s animal books, which began in 1901 with the privately printed Peter Rabbit, were at least influenced by the overall design of this book and, subsequently, so was the general success of the entire ‘Dumpy’ series" (Schiller, pp. 381-382). 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). See Schiller, "The Story of Little Black Sambo," in The Book Collector 23, No. 3 (Autumn 1974), pp. 381-386. HBS 67334. $9,500. Bookseller Inventory # 67334

Item Description: Grant Richards, London, 1899. Book Condition: Very Good +. First edition. A Very Good + copy of the book. It has been carefully resewn, but presents well. Some soiling to the pages and a contemporary gift inscription on the front end paper. Complete with all pages and the wonderful colored illustrations.The well-known - and controversial -- children's classic. Written in the late 19th century, by Scottish ex-patriot Helen Bannerman, the original version of "Little Black Sambo" was actually set in India, where Bannerman and her husband had moved and would go on to live for 30 years. The story follows the adventure of a young boy who ends up escaping from a group of vicious tigers. Though "Little Black Sambo" was incredibly popular, it would ultimately become a victim of its own success, as cheaper copycat versions of the work were produced, many of which trafficked heavily in demeaning black stereotypes. Little Black Sambo would eventually fall out of favor, although many critics still laud the work for its willingness to portray a heroic person of color in a time that a few positive depictions of ethnic characters existed. "?far and away, 'the grandest tiger in the jungle.'" (Contemporary review in The Spectator). Very Good +. Bookseller Inventory # 1640

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: 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

Item Description: Frederick A. Stokes Company; (no date), NY. Hard Cover. First Edition. 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
