About this Item: Berlin, Insel Verlag, 2017. Erste Auflage. 68 (4) Seiten das Buch ungelesen und wie neu, vom Illustrator auf dem Titel persönlich gewidmet, signiert und datiert (2017). Sir Quentin Saxby Blake (* 16. Dezember 1932 in Sidcup/London/Großbnritanien) ist ein englischer Cartoonist, Illustrator und Kinderbuchautor. Er war der erste Preisträger der Auszeichnung Children’s Laureate 1999–2001 Es war einmal eine ehrliche, wohlerzogene junge schwarze Katze. Dass Kitty alles andere als ehrlich und wohlerzogen ist, liegt bei einer Erzählung von Beatrix Potter natürlich auf der Hand. Dass sie ihrem Frauchen, einer liebenswürdigen alten Dame, aber derart hinterlistige Streiche spielt, damit konnte niemand rechnen. Anstatt nämlich brav im Gartenhäuschen zu nächtigen, streunt Kitty in Frack, Pelzstiefeln und mit einer Schrotflinte bewaffnet durch die Wälder und begegnet allerlei fiesen Gestalten wie zwei ungehobelten Frettchen und - zu Kittys großem Entsetzen - schließlich auch dem hundsgemeinen Fuchs Mr. Todd. Zum Glück gibt es da noch ihre Freunde, die Kitty aus dem größten Schlamassel wieder heraushelfen. Eine bisher unveröffentlichte Geschichte von Beatrix Potter - erstmals auf Deutsch. Mit Illustrationen des britischen Großmeisters Sir Quentin Blake, Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 650 Kl.-8°, gebundene Ausgabe, illustrierter Hardcover/Pappeinband mit eingedrucktem Rücken- u. Titelschild. Seller Inventory # 25418

About this Item: POTTER, BEATRIX (illustrator). POTTER,BEATRIX. THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT. Battledore Books 1995. This is a magnificnet Portfolio of prints from the original blocks with an appreciation signed by Maurice Sendak. The original first printing of Peter Rabbit was produced in 1901 by Potter herself after efforts at finding a publisher failed. She privately printed 250 copies of Peter Rabbit with a color frontispiece and 42 black line illustrations (including the cover). The blocks for this printing were only used one other time (for the second printing of 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, the publisher has located 34 of these original blocks and has produced this wonderfully elaborate portfolio, LIMITED TO 250 NUMBERED SETS. Each illustration is printed on fine acid free paper and each has its own enclosure printed with the caption. All are housed in a cloth clamshell case with a leather label. The images are remarkably sharp and clean. Featured before the prints is a 20 page ESSAY BY MAURICE SENDAK - an appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Sendak's admiration for Potter is longstanding and having the association between Sendak - the greatest contemporary author/illustrator and children's book, and Potter - author of one of the greatest literary works for children, couldn't be more significant. It has been printed by letterpress and SIGNED BY SENDAK! Included with this portfolio is a wonderful block print by Potter made from the original zinc line-cut. It is previously unpublished and is a charming woodcut entitled "Come dance a jig, to my Granny's Pig." The print is housed in a printed folder and is accompanied by a descriptive commentary by Ann Hobbs (Curator and the V&A). This is altogether a most wonderful item for anyone who appreciates Beatrix Potter. Seller Inventory # 17370

About this Item: Ernest Nister, 1896. First edition. Original cloth backed glazed pictorial boards. A good copy, with some wear to the corners and spine a sizeable chip torn from the corner of the front end paper. Internally fresh and clean. Tipped in chromolithograph frontispiece and numerous black and white illustrations throughout by various artists including Beatrix Potter, Louis Wain, and W. Foster. The most significant contribution is nine line drawings by Beatrix Potter (signed HBP) to accompany a verse entitled "A frog he would a fishing go". There is also a full page black and white image after a pen and gouache drawing by Potter, to accompany "The Story of Violante and the Silver Sixpence". These illustrations, which had their genesis in a picture letter to Eric Moore of September 1893, were offered (and after some horse trading, sold) to Nister in 1894. Potter had hoped Nister would publish them as the contents of a small booklet, but Robert Mack of Nister had replied that, "people do not want frogs now. The only way we could use it would be as a double page in our 'Annual'.". The illustrations duly appeared occupying three pages accompanying the verse "A Frog he would a fishing go", by another author. In due course Potter bought back the copyright (and blocks) for the illustrations and developed them to be published in 1906 as The Tale of Jeremy Fisher. The separate full page image depicts two young kittens looking in a shop window being watched by the shop keeper, knitting in the doorway, over which is the sign, "Squintina Tabby / Licensed to sell / Tea". The image carries the caption "What shall we Buy?". Leslie Linder's The History of the Writings of Beatrix Potter shows a rough sketch of the old tabby (facing p.179), noting that it was "for a picture sold to Ernest Nister". An original version of this image was sold as part of the property of Bertram Potter at Sotheby's July 2008. Comical Customers is now extremely scarce. Cotson (Potter) 562; Seller Inventory # 31817

Spine slightly faded, spine ends creased, boards a little bowed. A very good copy. Frontispiece, 17 colour plates, outline illustrations in the text by the author. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Beatrix Potter, Christmas 1941". Though unmarked as such, this copy was originally owned by Margaret Coward, a child who lived at Broomriggs Cottage in Near Sawrey, less than a mile from the author's Lake District home, Hill Top Farm. Potter bought the working farm in 1905 and lived there until her death in 1943, just a couple of years after this copy was inscribed. Over the years, Potter gave many of her books to the villagers and their children. The character of John Joiner, the terrier who removes the floorboard to release Tom, was based on young John Taylor, a Sawrey carpenter and the son of the village shopkeepers. This is a later printing of the title first published in 1908 in a large format as The Roly-Poly Pudding. In 1926 Frederick Warne decided to publish it in the small format consistent with other books in the same series, and the title was changed to The Tale of Samuel Whiskers. Seller Inventory # 124768

Dark mark to head of spine, extremities a little rubbed. A very good copy. Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations by the author. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Beatrix Potter. Nov. 5th 1941". As indicated by the childish inscription pencilled on the half-title, this copy was originally owned by Margaret Coward, a child who lived at Broomriggs Cottage in Near Sawrey, less than a mile from the author's Lake District home, Hill Top Farm. Potter bought the working farm in 1905 and lived there until her death in 1943, just a couple of years after she inscribed this copy. Over the years, Potter gave many of her books to the villagers and their children. This is a later printing of The Tailor of Gloucester, Potter's own favourite among her tales. It was first written and illustrated for Freda Moore, one of the children of her former German tutor and companion, as a Christmas present in 1901. Potter originally had the tale privately printed, as Warne had not yet published Peter Rabbit and she did not think they would want a second book from her so soon. It is unique in the series with its period setting (Potter drew the costumes from the collection at the V&A museum, then the South Kensington Museum), and was based on a true story that Potter had heard while staying with her cousin Caroline Hutton in Gloucestershire: an elaborate waistcoat had been commissioned for a grand mayoral occasion, but the tailor lacked the time to complete it and needed another packet of cherry-coloured silk – though more prosaically, it was his two assistants who had secretly finished the work.

Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations by the author. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "Beatrix Potter. Nov. 6. 1941".

Potter bought the working farm in 1905 and lived there until her death in 1943, just a couple of years after this copy was inscribed. Over the years, Potter gave many of her books to the villagers and their children. This is a later printing – The Tale of Jeremy Fisher was first published in 1906, shortly after the death of Potter's fiancé, Norman Warne. Potter had initially raised the project with Norman after the publication of Peter Rabbit – "I should like to do Mr Jeremy Fisher too some day" (Taylor, p. 81), and wrote to his brother Harold, who had stepped into Norman's role as her editor: "I know some people don't like frogs but I think I had convinced him [Norman] that I could make a really pretty book". Nine years after she had originally conceived the idea, her frog book was agreed for publication. There was one hold-up before publication: Fruing Warne queried the colouring of the frog and, to disprove the criticism that he was too yellow, Potter brought her model into the office in a jam-jar.

About this Item: Frederick Warne & Co Inc., LONDON & NEW YORK, 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. Beatrix Potter (illustrator). First Edition - Second Impression. From the inside jacket: This Journal, which is a remarkable document, was written by Beatrix Potter only for her own eyes. It gives a first-hand account of Victorian life in the late 19th century, and throws light on Beatrix Potter between the ages of 15 and 30, during which period comparatively little has hitherto been known. It shows how her writing matured as she passed from girlhood to woman-hood, and brings out her powers of observation, her shrewd judgement of human character, her keen sense of humour and her appreciate of nature and art. - The volume is illustrated with facsimile pages from the Journal, examples of her drawings and water colours, and photographs of the Potter family and some of the places mentioned in the Journal. There are 28 illustrations in colour and 39 in monochrome, and the volume includes Family Trees and a comprehensive index. - One of the nice things about this book, is that it is signed and dedicated by Leslie Linder to Mr. P. Shaffer [who was a well known English playwright and screenwriter] - States on the first blank endpage: 'For Mr P. Shaffer. With Kind Regards - from Leslie Linder. July 11th 1966'. - Condition: The original dustjacket houses this book. It retains the price to inner front prelim; 63/- NET, which was very expensive in 1966. The condition is not great; having creasing, general soiling and several chips. I have now housed this in a removable archival sleeve. The green faux leather boards with gold gilt lettering the the spine and decoration to the front board are in a beautiful condition. The dustjacket has most certainly served this book well and kept the boards immaculate. Page block is tight. End-pages are of a lightly mottled blue/gray colour and apart from the Leslie Linder dedication to the front, the end pages are in a beautifully clean condition. This is a heavy book with 448 pages and it is lavishly illustrated with drawings and photographs, it really is a beautiful work. Few areas of spotting and foxing. - Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Thanks for your interest. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 000981

About this Item: David McKay, Philadelphia, 1929. hardcover. Condition: near fine. Beatrix Potter (illustrator). Limited. Illustrated by Potter with 6 color plates and 20 in b/w, plus 42 smaller vignettes within the text. 225 pages. 8vo, original green cloth with inset color pictorial label (one small abrasion partially degrading the "e" in "Beatrix"). Philadelphia: David McKay, (1929). Limited first American edition -- number 99 of only 100 copies, with limitation and signature on a thin parchment leaf. A clean, tight and near fine copy. Illustrated by Potter with 6 color plates and 20 in b/w, plus 42 smaller vignettes within the text. 225 pages. 8vo, original green cloth with inset color pictorial label (one small abrasion partially degrading the "e" in "Beatrix"). Philadelphia: David McKay, (1929). Limited first American edition -- number 99 of only 100 copies, with limitation and signature on a thin parchment leaf. A clean, tight and near fine copy. This is the last of Potter's major works. She had finished the Peter Rabbit series, and was writing only for her own amusement, but was persuaded by the Philadelphia publisher Alexander McKay that she should write again for the public. Potter decided to target only the American market with this work, worried that the stories involved were too personal or too local to the Lake District for the British public. Alongside the American trade edition, a run of 100 copies were produced separately for her American friends and as gifts to be distributed at the discretion of the publisher, each with a limitation sheet signed by the author, and this is one of those extremely scarce autographed editions. It is the only limited/signed edition of any Beatrix Potter story ever produced. See Linder, "The Writings of Beatrix Potter," pp. 292-305. Seller Inventory # 276519
