Illustrated by Beatrix Potter. First Edition. Very Good. 24mo - over 5" - 5" tall FIRST EDITION Bound in the publishers original grey covered paper boards with silver title lettering to spine and front board. Paper onlaid colour illustration remains complete and intact and very well preserved. All pages are present and correct with no inscriptions and are tightly bound. The binding is remarkably tight given the books age.This is a very early impression of this book in the same format as the first printing. The binding looks identical. The copyright date of 1907 appears on the copyright page with no other dates printed. Minor signs of handling and light overall wear to the boards but a lovely copy nontheless. Unusually the spine remains strong with no missing pieces which is scarce for these particular little Beatrix Potter books. A very nice and presentable copy of a Beatrix Potter perennial favourite.
