This lot includes the group of "Little Black Sambo" illustrations shown in the corresponding image(s). 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 is a Tamil 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 reminiscent of "darky iconography". Both text and illustrations have undergone considerable revision since (history courtesy of Wikipedia).

The illustrations included in these pieces portray the story, with illustrations depicting the young boy walking in his new clothes, encountering a tiger, putting his clothes back on with the tigers in the background chasing each other around the tree and at home eating pancakes.
