Item Description: POTTER,BEATRIX. ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR: TALE OF PETER RABBIT. This is a charming watercolor SIGNED AND CAPTIONED IN INK BY POTTER and dated August 1927. It was executed on paper measuring 5 1/4" wide x 7 1/4" high and is in fine condition mounted and hinged on acid free board. The signature is lightly faded else fine. The image shows the surprised meeting of Peter and Mr. McGregor in the garden with Peter's back to the reader and Mr. McGregor's startled expression on his bearded face. The actual image measures 3 " wide by 2 1/2 " high, and appears on page 38 of the first edition of the book. 1 inch below the image in Potter's hand is written "Round the end of a cucumber frame / whom should he meet but Mr. McGregor! Beatrix Potter / Aug/ 1927". Judy Taylor explains in her book Beatrix Potter (p. 167-8) that Potter did a series of watercolors to raise money to 'raise a fund to save a strip of foreshore woodland and meadow, near Windermere Ferry, from imminent risk of disfigurement by extensive building and town extension.' Taylor adds that "Many of these pictures were sold in America.and within a year enough money had been raised." She quotes Potter: 'It was a great satisfaction to me to have been able to help the fund through the kindness of my friends in America. Whenever I cross the ferry and look at the pleasant green banks I will think of the good friends across a wider stretch of water.' This is undoubtedly one of these watercolors done by Potter specially to be sold to help this fund, a few of which are in the V&A collection. It is a charming piece of original Potter artwork featuring Peter Rabbit. Bookseller Inventory # 25175

Item Description: Strangeways, 1902. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Potter, Beatrix (illustrator). First edition. 1st 1902. Very good condition with no wrapper. This is the privately printed edition of the Tailor of Gloucester, of which only 500 copies were published. The book is in small format with pink paperboards with a line drawing of three mice sewing on the front cover. The book has a colour frontispiece and 15 colour plates. Beatrix Potter began to write her picture letters for children at the age of 26 and these were to become the basis for her books. The story of the Tailor of Gloucester was first told in a letter from Beatrix to Freda Moore, daughter of her former governess, Annie Carter. Having had her story of Peter Rabbit initially rejected by at least six publishers before Warnes agreed to publish it, Beatrix decided that she would not show her new little book to Warnes. She thought that they would either not want to publish a second book so soon, or that they may want to alter it or omit the nursery rhymes, or otherwise disapprove of what she now felt was "her mouse book". So she returned to Strangeways, the original printers and engravers of Peter Rabbit, and paid herself for a coloured private edition of 500 copies. The books differs considerably from the edition later published Warnes. It is longer, the pictures are not all the same and it contains many more jingles and nursery rhymes, sung by the rats and mice of Gloucester on Christmas Eve. Of all her books The Tailor of Gloucester remained Beatrix Potter's own favourite. This copy is SIGNED by Beatrix Potter with an inscription "To Cicely Roscoe from Beatrix Potter Jan 16th 03" on the front endpaper. Henry Enfield Roscoe was Beatrix's uncle and so Cicely was probably related to Beatrix. The book covers are a little marked, more so to rear. The spine has been neatly restored and there is a little wear to the edges. The endpapers are lightly browned and there is light browning to the text pages and just one small faint mark on the margin of one plate. Otherwise the contents are clean. Having been handled and given as a gift by Beatrix Potter herself, this is a very special copy of this exceptionally rare little book. SPECIAL OFFER: REDUCED FROM £6980! [R]. Signed by author. Book.

Item Description: Jan 13th, 1941. A lengthy two page letter, signed H.B. Heelis, written to Charles Forrester, a Carlisle cattle farmer. With original envelope. The first page is written on the back of a letter from Mr Forrester to Mrs Heelis in 1938 enclosing the pedigree of a bull she bought from him. On that side she has written, "I cannot find the pedigree referred to in this letter, I think the bull was bred by Mr Mitchenson.". In the main letter, she enquires about buying a young Galloway bull, having recently parted with one, "a fine beast and so quiet", and how it is difficult getting a Galloway stirk registered "as the inspectors know little about the breed, and call the stirks undersized". She them moves on to talk of the war, "Sad times - I think the war is turning to victory, but there will be much suffering yet. We can see the sky lighted up over the Lancashire towns." She talks of sheep farming "Lamb sales very disappointing" but "did very well the Hindwick wool". She talks also about pigs and the use of silage "We find it invaluable. So people who have bought cheap wire silos are having some waste if they did not thatch, + got rain water in". She finishes by hoping to hear that all is well at Skitby (Forrester's farm).

Item Description: Jan 25, 1943. A long four page letter (some 350 words), written on four sides of folded sheet of letter paper, signed H.B. Heelis, to Charles Forrester, a Carlisle cattle farmer. With original envelope. Heelis asks for another bull stirk to be purchased. "I must save up petrol against sending the lorry", and talks in detail about the cross breeding of cattle. Farming in wartime was "getting wearisome is it not Mr Forrester? I am turned 76 which is not old compared to your mother and mine but I begin to want a holiday". She had met Mr Hudson (minister of agriculture) - "a wash out - a fiasco!" - she had been on Kirkstone Pass to meet him - "thick white mist and the Galloways were two miles off. Mr Hudson said some uncomplimentary things about the wasted grass in the borders; and I said a lot about the uselessness of trying to grow potatoes on a sheep farm - but potatoes he insists on having, he only laughed". She finished by mentioning that her staff have been off with flu, "the men are having flu one after another.". Bookseller Inventory # 23067

Item Description: 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. Bookseller Inventory # 17370

Item Description: Kingston: Battledore, 1995, 1995. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. A Portfolio of Art Prints with an introduction by Maurice Sendak. Considered one of the greatest literary works for children, The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first privately published in 1901 in a limited edition of 250 copies and again three months later in 1902 (limited to 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, thirty-four of the original line blocks used have been located and properly identified; they are separately re-printed for the third time only -- on fine mould-made deckle-edged 100% cotton acid free paper in a special limited edition of 250 numbered sets, each print individually certified with a stamp on its reverse attesting to its limitation. Production and design has been organized by Iain Bain — noted printing and wood engraving soecialist — working alongside Ælecto Historical Editions, who have re-struck original Audubon plates for the New York Historical Society and more recently were employed to create a definitive facsimile of William the Conqueror’s Domesday Book for the British Government. Renowned and celebrated author/artist Maurice Sendak has written an original appreciation for this series of prints, which has been letterpress printed as an accompanying booklet and signed by him on the numbered colophon leaf. The project has been coordinated by antiquarian children’s books authority Justin G. Schiller, with kind permission of Frederick Warne & Co. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # ABB041
