About this Item: STURGES, KATHARINE (illustrator). POTTER,BEATRIX. SISTER ANNE. Philadelphia: David McKay (1932). 8vo (5 3/4 x 7 3/4"), blue gilt pictorial cloth, 154p., gilt on cover bright, slightly dulled on spine, a Fine copy IN THE RARE PICTORIAL DUST WRAPPER (back strip of dw faded, square chip off of top of backstrip with light fraying, old mend at fold). 1st edition second issue with frontis correctly placed. Illustrated by KATHARINE STURGES with 13 full page black and whites which includes the frontis repeated at p. 136 but which is not listed in the illustration list. Linder explains that "after the Tale of Little Pig Robinson had been published in America, Potter promised Mr. McKay another story." (p.324-6). The story is loosely based on Perrault's Bluebeard. It was illustrated by Sturges because "Potter regarded the preparation of illustrations to be too much of a strain" (Linder p. 325).

About this Item: Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1932, 1932. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt, top edge yellow. With the dust jacket. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Spine faded, some spotting to edges of text block, contents toned. A very good copy in the jacket with some chips to spine ends and panels. Frontispiece and 12 illustrations by Katherine Sturges. First edition, first issue. With the frontispiece incorrectly published opposite p. 7, rather than than title page. A Fairy Caravan offshoot, this is Potter's version of the tale of Bluebeard. It was withdrawn from The Fairy Caravan due to its length, and Potter now offered it to McKay as a story on its own. Due to her age and poor eyesight, Potter was unwilling to undertake the illustrating of Sister Anne, but was very pleased by the pen-and-ink artwork prepared by Sturges, commenting "Do thank Katharine Sturges from me for interpreting just what I meant!" It was never formally published in the UK, though some unbound sheets were submitted for copyright purposes. It was the last of Potter's books to be published in her lifetime. Linder, p. 430; Quinby 31. Seller Inventory # 109193
