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. 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

About this Item: [Ambleside: for the Author,] 1929, 1929. Large octavo. Original grey green boards with dark green cloth spine, titles to front board in black, all edges untrimmed. Housed in a blue velvet-lined solander box. Spine ends rubbed, front hinge split but holding, some spotting to first few leaves. 6 colour and numerous monochrome illustrations in the text by the author. First edition, UK issue, number 26 of 100 copies only. A touching presentation copy, inscribed by Potter on the front free endpaper, "To Mr & Mrs Wight of Graythwaite - in affectionate remembrance - from Beatrix Heelis. June. 10th 1930", together with an autograph letter from Potter to the Wights laid-in, consoling them on the loss of Mollie, their daughter, and writing that she had had it in mind to bring a copy of the book over for her: "I hope time is softening the pain of parting and that you can take comfort in thinking of her safe from the storms and cold of this earthly pilgrimage." She writes of her plans to visit soon, and notes an amusing anecdote of Mrs Wight's father ("I was taken aback when I joked about Mount Everest and he said he had been there!"). Several years later this copy made a serendipitous journey: it was mistakenly sold by Mrs Wight to a Kendal bookseller, resold to a bookseller in Hertford, and finally purchased by Leslie Linder. In a letter laid-in from Linder to Mrs Wight, he returns the book to its rightful owner, and asks in return not for payment but for any memories Mrs Wight might have of Potter. There is no record of Mrs Wight's reply, but Linder's response to her note also accompanies the book, thanking her "for the account of Mrs Heelis. I know from experience that notes like these are not written in five minutes." A photograph of Mr and Mrs Wight is also laid in. Linder p. 431; Quinby 29. Seller Inventory # 109175
