THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT (LIMITED EDITION CASED SET)
Illustrated by Beatrix Potter
Published by Frederick Warne & Co.. 1993
Nearly fine condition. Special Limited edition boxed set, (limited to 750 copies); issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. This commemorative box contains facsimiles of the three stages in the publication of this title: the picture letter Beatrix Potter first wrote to Noel Moore in 1893, her own privately-printed volume of 1901 (the first printing), and the original deluxe edition published by Frederick Warne in 1902 (gold binding). A small stapled pamphlet on the history of publication is included, as is a gilt embossed tissue guard to protect the limited edition plate on the interior of the box. The box is dark blue cloth with a brass latch and has a gilt title to spine. A beautiful edition for the collector!
A super set still in the white card sleeve which has protected it (slight wear to the sleeve).
