Despite its rightful legacy as racist literature, The Story of Little Black Sambo is...if one ignores the illustrations and family names...a classic hero tale that has reappeared recently under similar titles and illustrated by African American artists (see Jerry Pinkney and Julius Lester's Sam and the Tigers, 1996). This very rare version, however, shares none of those virtues. Illustrated by Kurt Wiese (with animations by A.V. Warren), this features stereotyped full color pictures and four movable illustrations. Even scarcer still, this comes with the original dust jacket featuring an additional wonderful illustration on the back jacket. In Fine condition (with a publisher's stamp on the front free endpaper noting it comes from their library) in a VG+ dust jacket with a small square on the back dj replaced. A spectacular copy.
