About this Item

A handsome printing in the original format and by Potter's original publisher. With 27 colour illustrations, most on double-sided plates, illustrated endpapers, and and cover decoration all by Beatrix Potter. 12mo, publisher’s original peach boards lettered in bright red on the upper cover and spine, with pictorial colour pastedown on the front cover, in the original pictorially decorated white paper dustjacket. 59 pp. A fine copy with only trivial evidence of use, the jacket likewise but for a touch of edgewear. POTTER'S FAVORITE OF HER TWENTY-THREE TALES. It was the second work she finished. She printed it privately in 1901. It would be the third published by Frederick Warne coming right on heals of Squirrel Nutkin in 1903. The tale was based on a real world incident involving John Pritchard, a Gloucester tailor commissioned to make a suit for the new mayor. He returned to his shop on a Monday morning to find the suit completed except for one buttonhole. Bookseller Inventory # 25621
