The horrific, despicable, derogatory images you have seen are examples of materials that were once the norm in Americsn history.
This book was published in the late 19th century by Donahue Henneberry & Co. of Chicago Ill. They were a printing and binding establishment that specialized in childrens books including nursery rhymes.
The earliest reference to Mother Hubbard is said to beSarah Catherine Martin, who published Old Mother Hubbard , 1768 - 1826.
This book, "Ten Little Niggers", printed in conjunction with Kosehner & Hayes. It has chromolithographed graphic detailed exaggerated images of black people. There is no doubt of its intentions. Be that as it may, this book is as much a part of American history as the Mayflower. In part, it's American literature.
If for any reason, the reader feels uncomfortable, I apologize. My intentions are mainly to share informstion.
I welcome any and all information pertaining to this item.
