Das Mampampe-Buch.

Leipzig: Abel & Müller, (1921). (19)ff., printed rectos only. This boldly illustrated German children’s book tells the story of Mampampe, a young African boy who, despite his mother’s warnings, leaves home in order to explore the wilderness and runs into a fearsome lion. The covers and each page are illustrated in full color, and the endpapers feature a repeating design of Mampampe’s face. The story is reminiscent of Little Black Sambo, and the characters are drawn using stereotypical racist caricatures similar to Sambo’s controversial illustrations. Some wear to extremities, and spine shows some light soiling, else fine in pictorial paper boards. Item #22833
