1 Hunt, Blanche Seale Little Brown Koko Has Fun
American Colortype Company 1945 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Illustrated by Wagstaff, Dorothy 
Bottom of front and back cover is worn with these areas of the red showing white peeking through. Corners (particulary the bottom) are bumped with red worn off in places. ; This book is still bright red and tight with black, white and red illustrations throughout. I found No writing, erasures, stamps or marks within or on the cover or endpapers. I believe this is a first edition as 1945 is the only date appearing anywhere in this approximately 10 1/2 inch tall and 8 inch tall hardcover. This is an example of juvenile writing/black americana featuring an African American little boy and his mother that would not be acceptable in today's world. ; 96 pages

2 Hunt, Blanche Seale Stories of Little Brown Koko
American Colortype Company 1940 Hardcover Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Wagstaff, Dorothy 
After page 96, a Little Brown Koko Coloring Book is bound into the volume. All but two of the pages have been colored by children and one page has a 3.5 inch tear at the bottom middle area. The binding is tight, but the endpapers are beginning to tear at the interior staples. One page (45/46) is heavily crinkled and wrinkled. Corners have some bumping. The cover colors are bright but the front cover does show some moisture droplet staining. Age related foxing and yellowing throughout. ; This volume of Little Brown Koko has a bright red spine and a bright blue border around a bright color illustration of Little Brown Koko, his "mammy", his mule and his puppy. Overall, it is in good shape with the defects I have listed. The book may be a first edition as 1940 is the only date I can find. It would be a good addition to any collection of 20th century black Americana. Ask me to email pictures if you need more information on condition. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 96 pages
