Kemble, Edward W. Kemble’s Pickaninnies: A Collection of Southern Sketches. New York/London: R.H. Russell and John Lane, 1901. First edition. Publisher’s cloth-backed pictorial boards, mounted circular illustration to front cover. Oblong 4to. Pict. half-title with frontis. to verso, followed by 30 full page stereotypical illustrations of black children and adolescents in black-and-white, printed captions in dialect, on rectos only. Slightly shaken, clean internally but for minor smudging to edges of a few leaves. Overall a nice copy of a rarely seen title.
