About this Item: New York Herald; Grand Union Tea Company, Brooklyn, 1902. Soft cover. Condition: Good -. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. R.F. Outcault (illustrator). 1st Edition. Cardboard panels with brown cloth spine, somewhat soiled. Book: Good Text good, but the last episode in the book "Pore Lil' Mose: He calls on Edison-- one page) is missing . Spine has somehat rumpled wity 2 inch rubbing wit loss of the 2 inches mentioned, 3 inch loss on back of spine, minor wrinkles on front, rubbing at corners, loss of 1 and 1/2 inch on lower corner. other smaller signs of age. Text is quite bright and untorn or foxed, or marked. The spine is coming but is still attached. Quite scarce in any condition. Pore Lil Mose was created by Richard F. Outcault, the highly acclaimed cartoonist behind The Yellow Kid (widely tho incorrectly believed to be the continued below first comic strip) and Buster Brown (which Buster Brown Shoes were named after). It was, in fact, Outcault's third-most prominent creation, right after those two luminaries. It featured what may have been the first black title character in comics. And yet, most histories of the medium mention it only in passing, if at all. One would think the comics industry is collectively embarrassed by Pore Lil Mose. One would probably be correct in thinking that. Mose was depicted as pure stereotype, with big, white eyes and big, white teeth grinning out of his dark, fuzzy-topped face, from which a constant stream of grammatical solecisms flowed. At least he wasn't colored solid black, like most of his brethren in the early decades of daily comics, but that's only because the Sunday pages he appeared in were printed in color, and thus offered greater scope for subtlety without the bother of stippling or cross-hatching. With black children in today's comics ranging from the completely ordinary Curtis Wilkins, who could just as easily be white, to the highly political Huey Freeman of The Boondocks, it's been a long time since a guy like Pore Lil Mose could be tolerated on the comics page. But that was only the first impression the reader got of Mose. Those who looked deeper saw a warm, loving, intelligent, morally upright little boy. He got into trouble from time to time, but then, so did Little Jimmy, Little Lulu and most of the other "littles" in comics. Outcault's portrayal of him may have conformed to the standards of the time, according to which that was simply how Negroes looked and sounded in the mainstream media, but there wasn't a drop of mean-spiritedness in it.
