EIGHT LITTLE JAPS

By PINKNEY, ERNEST

COLSON, HAROLD. JAPANESE INTEREST. EIGHT LITTLE JAPS by Ernest Pinkney. Chicago: Reilly and Britton 1911. Oblong narrow folio (14 1/2 x 8 1/4"), cloth backed stiff pictorial card covers, some wear to edges and corners and repair to 2 hinges, VG+. The text in verse is a variation of the Ten Little Niggers rhyme. 8 of the 10 leaves of the book (printed on heavy card paper) are incrementally shorter than each succeeding page. The front of each page has the illustration with the verse on the back. By turning the page you reveal the next illustration which is hidden when closed. The clever part is that although one section changes with each leaf the illustration still remains pertinent to the text. Brightly illustrated in color by Harold Colson showing the exploits of a troupe of performing vaudevillian Japanese men. Rare.
