Contains 12 full page colour illustrations and many more part page colour and black and white illustrations. Divided into three main sections: Little Folks in Hot, Cool and Cold Lands, it really is quite a far ranging cultural study from a period in time, i.e. 1920. Everything is based upon the colour of the children, be it white, brown, black, red and yellow, but from this starting position there is a remarkable amount of social and cultural information that is explained. The illustrations really help the descriptions and it appears that some of the illustrations are based upon photographs. Corners worn, top / bottom of spine bumped. Some grubbiness to boards and internally with the occasionaly closed tear. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
