Overall the jacket is in reasonable condition for its age but is a little ragged at head and tail of spine with some loss at tail - it is also a little mottled on the spine with a very small hole halfway down adjoining the back panel. There is some general edgewear, but notwithstanding points noted the wrapper with its attractive colour inset of Little Pig Robinson in an armchair remains pleasing. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Small crease on the upper left corner of the front panel label, otherwise fine."There is no year on the title-page. The first printing can be identified by the absence of the word 'reprinted' which appears on the back of the title-page of the next printing" (Linder).The Tale of Little Pig Robinson is a children's book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter as part of the Peter Rabbit series. The book contains eight chapters and numerous illustrations. Though the book was one of Potter's last publications in 1930, it was one of the first stories she wrote. Potter introduces the story as her explanation of how the pig from Edward Lear's poem, "The Owl and the Pussycat" comes to travel to the "land where the Bong-Tree grows". Little Pig Robinson's aunts, Miss Porcas and Miss Dorcas, send him to the market to sell produce from their farm and purchase certain items they need. On his way home from the market, Little Pig Robinson is stopped by a sailor who offers him an array of goods and an opportunity to travel. Little Pig Robinson agrees to the sailor's offer and goes with the sailor to the ship. There, the sailor tells Little Pig Robinson to go down and help himself to "muffins and crumpets". The sailors then leave the dock and Little Pig Robinson quickly realizes he has been kidnapped. He further realizes that the sailor he had met at the market was in truth the ship's cook who had planned to turn Little Pig Robinson into a fine feast for the ship's men. With the help of the ship's resident cat, Little Pig Robinson escapes on a row boat and finds his way to "the land where the Bong tree grows". Some time later Pig Robinson meets the The Owl and the Pussycat there.Linder, p. 430. Quinby 30. V & A 1596. Bookseller Inventory # 03969
