About this Item

A handsome printing in the original format and by Potter's original publisher. With 27 color plates, illustrated endpapers, and cover decoration by Beatrix Potter. 12mo, publisher’s original tan boards lettered in brown 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 very nice copy, the book fine with only trivial evidence of use, the jacket attractive with minor mellowing and edge wear, a small closed tear repaired from behind with tape. A BELOVED CLASSIC IN THE ORIGINAL FORMAT. Potter began work on Tom Kitten in the summer of 1906, and used the gardens and interior of the farmhouse at Hill Top as the setting for the tale. A week after the letter to Millie Warne she wrote her publisher Harold Warne, "I have not quite finished the Kitten, it is an exasperating model; and I always find it difficult to settle to work in the country. I hope I have not been inconveniently long about it.". Bookseller Inventory # 25478
