About this Item

12mo. 94pp. First edition. First or second printing (they were identical), with date on title-page. Contains fourteen color plates, among Potter's most endearing. The story concerns two real pigs at her own Hill Top Farm, which is the setting for several of the illustrations. At the time, she wrote in her journal "I have done a little sketching when it does not rain, and I spent a very wet hour inside the pig-sty drawing the pig. It tries to nibble my boots, which is interrupting." Potter herself appears in the drawing on page 22, bending over the piglet Alexander. Some very light spotting to textblock fore-edge and small stain at top edge, scattered foxing to first and last leaves, spine faded, else a fine copy in publisher's maroon paper-covered boards with inset color plate. Housed in custom half morocco drop-back case. (Linder, pp. 213-17, 429). Bookseller Inventory # 26698
