The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Chicago: M. A. Donohue and Company; red cloth boards with full sized, full coloured plate of Peter looking out from under the fence, coloured pictorial endpapers with a picture of all the members of the Peter Rabbit Series playing in the woods, half. Picture Book hardback.

A very large and wild looking Peter stares directly at the viewer from under the fence. This artist here made an attempt to copy, rather than simplify, the story and also seemed to be familiar with rabbits. The effect is of colored line drawings, and quite pleasing.

CONDITION: Very Good in Fair jacket with nice front panel; no names or other marks, very clean binding has been well protected except for missing areas of upper spine, so the cover plate is lovely; in a jacket with an inch gone on both ends, not affecting text and very rubbed on creases, the back had major tears above Peter's head, repaired recently on the outside with tape (not by us!).
