throughout in black and red. The text is a fairly stereotypical portrayal of a playful young Black girl and her
mom, but the images offer a relationship between the two characters that have a life apart from the text, and

bds. First ed. Racine, Whitman Publishing, 1934. Covers V.G. with some rubbing to corners; interior near
fine, clean and quite bright. A very presentable copy. $180.00
