by Beatrix Potter

Illustrated by Beatrix Potter

Published by Frederick Warne & Co.. 1st. 1902

Very good condition. Deluxe Edition. "wept" for "shed" on page 51. According to Linder 8000 copies of Peter Rabbit were first printed for the trade edition and 2000 of these were bound in this deluxe format. Small format as normal for the Peter Rabbit series. Green cloth with red titles to spine and front cover, also a pictorial onlay to the front. Grey floral endpapers. 97 pages. Colour illustrations.

Spine and corners bumped and slightly worn. A few light scuff marks to cover edges. Joints were either cracked or broken but now repaired but evidence of old tape repairs and some slight loss of surface paper to endpapers. Heavy crease to page 50. Grubby fingermarks to contents, mainly at page edges. Page 86 has light ink mark along very top edge. A decent copy of this scarce little book. This copy would make a wonderful gift.
