Item Description: 1906. Potter, Beatrix (illustrator). London & New York: Frederick Warne & Co., (1906). [Title and copyright pages constitute the inside panels of the wallet.] Original light grey-green panorama-style wallet book with cover pictorial onlay. First Edition of this ultimate cat-and-mouse story, each teasing the other (the mouse sports a green jacket and a pink bowtie). MISS MOPPET is one of only two Beatrix Potter books that first appeared in this fold-out concertina-style wallet format (the other being THE STORY OF A FIERCE BAD RABBIT, likewise published at the end of 1906). It was not until 1916 that it came out in the format of a regular book.~This copy is in the preferred state (believed to be one month earlier), with "London & New York" on the back of the wallet (rather than "New York & London"). Condition is near-fine: there is very little external wear, with the vulnerable silver tab-and-slot device in better-than usual condition; some page hinges show light wear but they all remain solid (these hinges are notoriously fragile, since they are 360-degree hinges in a children's book). Rather scarce in this condition. Linder p. 426; Quinby 11. Bookseller Inventory # 13493

Item Description: Hayes Lithographing Co. Buffalo New York. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. The Story of Miss Moppet was first produced by Warne as a panorama, fold out narrative in 1906, and later produced as a small format 'typical' Potter edition in 1916. I suspect this book is the true First hardback which was pirated by an American publisher prior to the UK hardback being released. But I do not know - if anyone can help please shout. It is super-scarce and has had the spine restored by a professional. Now in wonderful condition and superbly reproduced as you can see from the pictures. In twice the size of the standard Warne copies. Please ask any questions, Paypal accepted. One for the American archives, I think. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1470511220535

Item Description: Frederick Warne & Co., 1906. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Potter, Beatrix (illustrator). First edition.. 1st 1906. Very good condition with no wrapper. The delightful story of Miss Moppet, the little kitten, and her attempts to catch a mouse who is determined not to be caught! The first edition is printed in panoramic form, mounted on a strip of linen and folded concertina-style into a wallet with a tuck-in flap. Needless to say, these were very fragile and few survived. Later editions were printed in the usual small book format. The wallet is covered with grey pictorial cloth with a colour onlay of the Miss Moppet to the front. "London & New York" on rear cover denotes that this is the first printing. Some wear to cover edges; a few light marks. Inscription in ink to verso of a 'page' of this book. Light browning; small piece of surface paper damage to corner of page with inscription. All pages are still in tact - some wear to page edges. Still in very good condition for this book! [S].
