Item Description: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1946. The book tells the story of a little fur family that live in a tree trunk in the woods. The story showcases the little fur child as he leaves his house and explores the surrounding woods for the day. He encounters other creatures like him, as well as others that are very different, such as a fish and a flying bug. In one of the book's most memorable sequences, he even encounters a tiny version of himself, which he kisses and sends it on its way. At the end of the day he returns home to dinner with his parents who then tuck him in and sing him to sleep. This book was one of the first collaborations between writer Margaret Brown and illustrator Garth Williams. Little Fur Family was a notable due to its fur cover. The original edition of the book was entirely wrapped in real rabbit fur. This first edition had 50,000 copies printed, and it has been estimated that 15,000 rabbits were killed and skinned to provide enough fur for the covers. It came in a pictorial box with circular cut-out in the bear's stomach through which the fur protrudes. Later editions of the book only featured a patch of fur, mostly like fake fur, on the front cover.This is the first edition of this book, completely covered in rabbit's fur. The front fur cover is torn, but the fur covering makes it barely noticeable unless one opens the book. There is some slight deterioration stains on the pages where the paper has been in contact with glue used to adhere the fur. It comes in its original box, which is slighted browned and rubbed in the corners. This used to be a library copy so there are a few partial library stamps still visible on the box.
