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.

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.

I welcome any and all information pertaining to this item.
