Descripción

London, James Nisbet & Co., (about 1905). 13 x 9 cm. Cloth-backed boards (= rebound using most of the first binding). 144 p. printed on one side only. With 72 illustrations in colors by the author. 25th thousand. Backstrip and flyleaves are recent. On the (worn) cover boards an oval illustration was pasted showing Quibba in his snake-held basket.Pretty well-restored early British edition of this famous sequel to Little Black Sambo, about the perilous and heroic adventures of stereotypical children from British India, written by a kind-hearted Scotswoman living in Tamil Nadu. Her naive illustrations lend a loving flavour to the adventure story. This book was first published in 1902 and became hugely popular, like its counterparts, before plummeting into the abyss of racism. Published without the author's name.
