Description:
New York: Lippincott, 1960 Augusta Braxton Baker was "a lioness of children's literature" according to Wikipedia. She made a point of selecting these folktales from around the world to reintroduce because the books they were in were out-of-print and she wanted them to be more accessible. You will note her title at the end of the introduction: Storytelling and Group Work Specialist, The New York Public Library. She was the first African-American hired in administration at the New York Public Library, and set to work to find children's books which presented black people in a more favourable light. She is big in the storytelling literature. The book in question is missing it's dj and has some tape stains on the front endpaper and ffep. No other marks. Pages are yellowing. This is a 4th printing of the 1960 editiion, with wonderful artwork by Johannes Troyer, about whom I could not find out much, but I think they really are exceptionally pleasing. Cover and corners are rubbed, but… Read more

Very Clean, no writing, edges still tinted dark blue. Rear cover has impression of ?clip board. Cover review selections include "authentically brutal," "tumultuous, blood-pounding experience," "stark, relentless" and high praise from Edmond Wilson. Baldwin was a passionately angry black homosexual man who had a tremendous influence on American writing but spent most of his life in France. Due to the cocked hinge which has affected the binding, even with the very light wear, this book is more of a 'collectable' than a 'readable.'

Description:
San Diego, California, U.S.A.: Gulliver Books, 1996 First Edition, first printing, full letter line A to E, no DJ as issued, v. light rub to corners, no writing or marks. Awardwinning illustrator tackles water pollution in the Chattanooga: a thrilling story about an experiment using a "Living Machine," illustrated with the author's collages. I don't know if this book was successful at all. Everyone's heard of Molly Bang, but I had not heard of this book, and after 14 years that is very disappointing. Worse, when I typed "Chattanooga Sludge" into the Search bar on Wikipedia, I was directed to the story of a 2008 eco disaster, a fly ash sludge spill in the Tennessee Valley Area. On her website, Molly Bang says, "Chattanooga Sludge didn¿t sell well at all and now it¿s out of print. Did it not sell because it is too complicated for young children? Because it¿s a science book? Because it came out 15 years before people began to be really worried… Read more
