/Pauline Baynes, illustrations.

Country Tales.

London: Frederick Warne, 1987, 1st this format and thus illustrated, from Fairy Caravan (1929); pale blue shiny boards with tiny picture of a woman and lambs and a mouse, lovely wild garland surrounding; parchment paper endpapers, in jacket identical. Small hardback.

The other books in this series are simply miniatures of famous books with the original illustrations. This book and Wag-by-Wall however, are the work of the celebrated illustrator Pauline Baynes, painted in a unique and delicate style, wisely not attempting to copy Potter.
