Vintage 1941 LITTLE BLACK SAMBO CHILDREN BOOK Americana Picture Book Illustrated Narrative Classic

An original 1941 Listen Book from Music You Enjoy of New York, NY.

For your consideration, we present the children's classic Little Black Sambo, based on the original book by Helen Bannerman in 1899.

The Story of Little Black Sambo is a children's book written and illustrated by Helen Bannerman, and first published by Grant Richards in October 1899 as one in a series of small-format books called The Dumpy Books for Children.

Sambo originally was a South Indian boy who encounters four hungry tigers, and surrenders his colorful new clothes, shoes, and umbrella so they will not eat him. The tigers chase each other around a tree until they are reduced to a pool of melted butter.

Sambo then recovers his clothes and his mother makes pancakes of the butter. The story was a children's favorite for half a century until the word sambo was deemed a racial slur in some countries, and the illustrations considered derogatory. Both text and illustrations have undergone considerable revision since.

The book itself is 7 1/2 inches square and has 16 full color pages. Weight is 5 ounces.

The book itself is in good condition. The saddle stitching has come out of the upper part of the book, although all the pages are still attached and accounted for. Otherwise, the pages are free from rips and tears. The record that originally came with the publication has since been broken, but this does not affect the children's book itself.

Free and clear of major defects, this book would make a welcome addition to anyone's vintage collection.
