Bannerman, Helen

THE STORY OF THE TEASING MONKEY

BY THE AUTHOR OF "LITTLE BLACK SAMBO" AND

"LITTLE BLACK MINGO"

New York, Frederick A. Stokes Company, (1907).

First US edition 12mo. Cloth backed pictorial boards showing Jocko, the

teasing monkey, hanging from a tree and pulling the tails of two lions.

142pp. Illustrated in color throughout and printed on one side of the page

only. Gift inscription "from Aunt Florence" dated 1909. Trace of soil;

bottom edge worn else this is a near fine copy.

The dustwrapper is present:

Offwhite paper printed on the upper panel

with the same information as is on the title page. It is soiled and faded,

and lacks pieces at the head and tail of the spine and at the fold. We can

find no previous instance indicating that this title had a

dustwrapper, nor is it mentioned in the bibliographies.

First editions of the

Teasing Monkey

are scarce to begin with; copies

in dustwrapper are basically unheard of.

$1200
