With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors. Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more. So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.
N.d., circa 1940. 9 page story. The story is told in quasi-black dialect, and there is probably a racist dimension to the story involving a black family, although the author may not have had an invidious intent at the time. While the illustrations are a bit crude, and possibly deliberately so, the author does have a comedic spark, notwithstanding the offense someone might take to it. Certainly an interesting relic from an era when there were no inhibitions with regard to stereotyping.
