The Golliwoggs Polar Adventures:

The Upton mother and daughter partnership wrote and illustrated 13 golliwogg books and contributed to a popularization of the golliwogg character in it’s time. Social changes prompted a move away from the character by Florence Upton. This Golliwoggs Polar Adventures is Florence Upton’s fifth book and in good condition.
