School book from 1871 Is Not Kind to People of Color

This schoolbook from 1871 may be depicting scenes that we realistic for the period but the captions under each reveal a labeling system at the time that treats the residents of many parts of the world as less than equal - way less. They read clockwise: 1) Enlightened 2) Half-civilized 3) Savages 4) Barbarous.
