The Story of Topsy
This story was originally published in 1908 in a single volume as The Story of Topsy
From Uncle Tom's Cabin as part of Reilly and Britton's "Children's Stories
That Never Grow Old" series. The illustrations are by John R. Neill, best
known as the illustrator of the many volumes in L. Frank Baum's "Oz" series.
In the same year the publishers combined Topsy's story with "Little
Black Sambo"'s, and it is from that text -- The Story of Little
Black Sambo, by Helen Bannerman, illustrated by J.R. Neill (Chicago: Reilly and Britton, 1908) --
that the images at left were scanned.
