POTTER, BEATRIX

THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT

Privately Printed, [1901]. The tale of Peter Rabbit was developed from a picture letter sent to Noel Moore on September 4th 1893. The manuscript was rejected by several publishers, so when Potter came to the conclusion that it might never be published, she had it privately printed in an edition of only 250 copies on December 16th, 1901. Few copies have survived in such attractive condition. Grey-green pictorial boards with flat spine - the first issue. Colour frontispiece and 41 black and white illustrations by the author. A Very Good copy housed in a black morocco solander box.

"PETER RABBIT AND FAMILY" ORIGINAL INK AND WATERCOLOUR DRAWING

1927. A Superb Original Beatrix Potter Watercolor Drawing of Mrs. Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, and Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail POTTER, Beatrix. "Peter Rabbit and family." [N.p.]: 1927. Original pen and ink and watercolor drawing. Signed and dated at lower right: "Beatrix Potter/1927." Image size: 5 1/4 x 4 3/16 inches (134 x 107 mm.). Matted, framed, and glazed. This charming watercolor depicts at left Mrs. Rabbit buttoning up Peter Rabbit s blue coat, as Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail walk off to the right toward the trees in the background. All are wearing the same clothes as shown in the similar drawing on p. 17 of the first edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit, which faces the page of text: "Now run along, and don t get into mischief. I am going out." There are variations in the cloth of Mrs. Rabbit s blue dress, the trees in the background, and the position of the rabbits. On the verso of the frame is the original label of The Casson Galleries, Boston, and a previous owner s ink presentation inscription, "Christmas 1927." In 1927, the National Trust undertook an urgent appeal for money to raise funds to purchase a strip of Lake Windermere s shore, Cockshott Point. Beatrix Potter wished to help raise money to ensure that the land was never developed, but was unable to persuade her mother to contribute, although her house overlooked the Point. It occurred to Beatrix Potter that she may be able to raise money herself by selling some of her pictures in America. "She sent fifty signed copies of drawings of Peter Rabbit to the Editor of the Horn Book Magazine, Miss Bertha Mahony. Miss Mahony sold the drawings on behalf of the National Trust at a guinea each, there were requests for more and the final sum raised was 」104, a substantial donation to the appeal" (Taylor, Whalley, Hobbs and Battrick, Beatrix Potter 1866-1943: The Artist and Her World, pp.193-194). The catalogue of the Victoria and Albert Museum collection lists four ink and watercolor drawings intended for the magazine, but not sent, three signed and dated August or September 1927, as well as twenty preliminary pencil and ink sketches (Beatrix Potter, The V&A Collection 1830-1845). It would appear highly likely that the present watercolor is one of those sent to America for Miss Mahony to sell on behalf of the National Trust.

CHANGING PICTURES

A Book of Transformation Pictures. Pub. Ernest Nister, nd (c.1894). 1st edn. Containing 6 full-page chromolithographed moveable pictures + numerous b&w text illus. throughout. pp. 16. Red cloth backed glazed boards with colour pictorial fr. cvr. grey & white patterned eps. 9 1/4 x 7 1/2".
(Lacks "tab" from one moveable - bottom bkstrip. bumped with sml. piece paper chipped from bottom hinge corners of cvrs. - sml. bump/tear bottom edge rear cvr. & rear cvr. light damp-mark - sl. wear top fr. corner & tip of bottom fr. corner cracked - eps. strengthened at hinges with insc. dd. 31st Dec. 1894 fr. free ep. - some thumbing & odd foxing contents & few sml. marginal tears) Apart from the sl. damage to corners, the pictorial cover is remarkably clean & fresh - free from the usual rubbing & scratching. scarce.
The only Beatrix Potter illustration is one of 3 featured on the cover, depicting a rabbit opening a door & finding a basket of carrots and turnips. The book is considered to have been published in 1894, although a copy has been recorded bearing an 1893 inscription.This publication followed shortly after the Peter Rabbit picture letter to Noel Moore dated 4th September 1893, but pre-dates by as much as 7 or 8 years the publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Linder sets out at length the 1894 correspondence between Nister & Beatrix Potter but it does not mention this book and nor does Linder who was presumably aware of it. Also apparently unknown to Quinby.

THE PIE AND THE PATTY-PAN

FIRST EDITION of The Pie And The Patty-Pan by Beatrix Potter. Published London, Frederick Warne & Co., 1905 (as stated on bottom of title page). This copy is the Rare De-luxe Edition. Bound in silk-like light blue cloth with front cover illustration & decoration in dark blue and gold.ハ Lettering on front cover & on spine is in dark blue.ハ The endpages are white, and have similar light silky pattern to them. The contents pages have all been edged in gold. There are 52 pages. There are 10 fullpage pictures in colour + some b&w illustrations to the text. Size approx 7 x 5 1/2 inches.
The overall condition of this book is very good. The gold on front cover is nice and has no rubbing. The edges are slightly dusty. Corner tips and spine ends are slightly rubbed, but with hardly any wear. Rear cover does have some marks (not sure if they can be removed). The back endpages have a split at the top (about 2 inches). There is a thin faint water-mark on the bottom edges of front & back endpages, and also partly on the foredges. On close inspection, the water-mark on the bottom edge of endpages, also appears on 4 of the coloured pictures, it is not bad, just in one place on the bottom margin (i have included an image of the worst affected page....which I think you will agree is not that bad). The book has been read, there is a bit of light fingering to pages, and pages are also just a little loose in places.
The common first edition is bound up in paper covered boards - this copy is the Rare De-luxe edition bound in cloth with lovely gold decorated cover.

Frederick Warne. 1906, FIRST EDITION, first issue, with 'London & New York' on rear cover, pages mounted on linen and folded concertina style, arranged in pairs with text on recto and illustration on facing verso, first page slightly creased at bottom outer corner, one page with short tear in top blank margin, paper cracked at one fold, ff.[28], 113x95mm., mounted within folding green cloth wallet with silver tab, slightly darkened, front with dark blue stamped lettering and decoration, picture of a rabbit onlaid in centre, publisher's device on rear, mottled lilac endpapers printed in white, some hinges splitting but firm, good . (Linder p.426: Quinby 12)

A nice copy of an inherently fragile book with the often missing tab present. Shops were reluctant to stock this and Miss Moppet, the only other book by Potter published in this form, because they are awkward for small hands to handle and easily damaged. Both were eventually reprinted in bookform in 1916. Bad Rabbit was written at the prompting of Beatrix Potter's niece, Louie, who told her aunt that 'Peter was much too good a rabbit, and she wanted a story about a really naughty one!' (Linder p.183).

THE TALE OF JEMIMA PUDDLE-DUCK

London: Frederick Warne & Co., 1908 .First edition (deluxe cloth binding). 12mo. AEG. Wine-brown cloth with gold stamping and decoration; color paste label on cover. Gold lettering on spine. This is the deluxe cloth binding edition of the book with script lettering on cover and spine; this copy has beenprofessionally recased (invisible) and is quite attractive. There is a curious sense about these deluxe bindings for Potter books. In this size, the more lavish presentation works since it is small enough to be discreet and consistent with her images. Thus, the end result is quite delightful and very attractive. Jemima was a real duck who lived on Potter's beloved Hill Top Farm and this book provides an accurate rendition of the farm and life on it at this time. She has reproduced the farm settings as well as the people who livedand worked on the farm with her while she was writing the book. What a wonderful way to preserve and recognize where you live and whatyou appreciate so much. It lives as a permanent monument and this Puddle-Duck is our tour-guide to Potter's life and farm setting. First Edition.

FAIRY CARAVAN

POTTER, BEATRIX

London and Philadelphia Copyright of theauthor 1929 First edition. One of 100 copies with the first nne leaves printed in Ambleside but this copy without the limitation page.Beatrix Potter's Privately Printed Ambleside Edition of "The Fairy Caravan" POTTER, Beatrix. The Fairy Caravan by Beatrix Heelis ("Beatirx Potter"). [Philadelphia and London]: Copyright of the Author, 1929. Beatrix Potter's privately printed Ambleside edition. One of 100 copies, with the first nine leaves printed at Ambleside and the remaining sections from the sheets of David McKay's Philadelphia edition. Large octavo. 225, [3, blank] pp. Pages [1]-18 are printed on laid paper watermarked "Abbey Mills/Greenfield" surmounted with a crown. Frontispiece and five colorplates, twenty-one full-page black and white illustrations (including the vignette of seven dogs on p. [5]), and forty-two black and white vignettes in the text. Original quarter dark green cloth over green boards. Front cover lettered in dark green. Spine extremities a little creased, minimal rubbing to board edges and corners, small stain on rear pastedown. Small bookseller?s ticket on front pastedown. An excellent copy of this extremely scarce Beatrix Potter item. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case. "It was intended that this book should be printed only in America, and would contain some of the writings about [Beatrix Potter's] farm animals in a fairy caravan setting, pieced together with fragments of her miscellaneous unpublished work..It is about a travelling circus known as Alexander and William's Circus, which was invisible to humans..Apart from the numerous pen-and-ink drawings for The Fairy Caravan, there were to be a number of coloured illustrations..[Potter's] next concern was to obtain English copyright. After making inquiries, she told Mr. McKay, "It is evident that the English copyright must be secured by me. I told you" in our backyard" that I am shy about publishing that stuff in London" my real wish and present intention is to have one hundred copies semi-privately printed by the Ambleside printer" a small local publisher..A few would have to be soldover the counter, and there are certain formalities about depositing copies for registration purposes." So she asked for one hundred sheets of paper to be sent over in order to have them bound privately. This was done by George Middleton, printers and publishers, Ambleside, Westmorland. In the privately bound copies of The Fairy Caravan, the first eighteen pages of the American edition, including the preface and dedication page, were discarded, and a new set of pages printed at Ambleside. An additional page was added on which weresketches of dogs she knew, with their names written underneath. On the title page, Beatrix Potter used her married name, Beatrix Heelis. The preface was omitted from the private edition because it hadbeen written specially for American readers" (Linder, pp. 292-294). Linder, p. 431. Quinby 29.

THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PETER RABBIT

Illustrated by Laura V. Schmeing. Pub. Ohio. Artcraft Paper Products, nd (c.1950).

Colour illus. thick card cvrs., titling on front & list of series rear. 8 x 5 7/8". (Some rubbing of hinges & top bkstrip. repr'd - sml. scratch rear cvr.) v. nice copy with the usual rubbing of bkstrip. scarce.
There were a series of pop-up books produced by the Artcraft Paper Products during the 1950s. Unfortunately the thin paper-coverings on the bkstrips were not really sufficient to cope with the strain of the opening & closing of the books & as a result these books are so often found with repaired or replaced bkstrips. The book tells the story of Peter Rabbit's home on an island off the coast of Maine. It would appear there are no farmers to steal from, so he takes the carrots from a local lighthouse keeper!. This copy lists 19 other titles in the series. Another copy examined had more titles listed which indicates that this is an earlier issue. Also the top line was omitted from the front cover of the other copy.

A VICTORIAN NATURALIST: BEATRIX POTTER'S DRAWINGS FROM THE ARMITT COLLECTION

Fredrick Warne 19930927. A Victorian Naturalist Beatrix Potter\'s Drawings from the Armitt Collection 27 September 1993 Hardback, 192 pages, Colour and B&w Illustrations Penguin Books Ltd London, UK ISBN 0723239908 Dimensions in millimetres: 250 x 199 x 19 Dimensions in inches: 9.84 x 7.83 x 0.75 Illustrator: Beatrix Potter Shortly after her marriage in 1913 Beatrix Potter became a member of the Armitt Library in Ambleside, Cumbria. This subscription library had been founded a year earlier by three sisters "to create a collection of books of scientific, literary and antiquarian value" that was intended eventually to become a small museum. Beatrix Potter strongly approved of the aims and ideals of the Armitt sisters, particularly their concern for the study of natural history and their active interest in safeguarding the Lake District countryside.

England's Lake District: Wordsworth called it "a blended holiness of earth and sky." Today this poetic rolling landscape receives 12 million visitors each year--and feels the strain.

Soviet Pollution: In pursuit of economic self-sufficiency, the Soviet empire left a foul legacy of dying forests, filthy waterways, and disfigured children across its vast territory. Chornobyl: At the site of the world's worst nuclear accident, two surviving reactors continue to produce electric power for an energy-poor--and fearful--Ukraine. Deadly Jellyfish of Australia: Camouflaged by murky waters, the delicate box jellyfish p
acks a lethal punch: Venom from its tentacles can kill a human in four excruciatingly painful minutes. Cover: The king of beasts guards his kill during an African night in Botswana's Chobe National Park. With Vol. 186 slipcase when purchased together with other 5 issues July-December 1994.

GEORGE VI & ELIZABETH

GEORGE VI & ELIZABETH : CHRISTMAS CARD 1944

(1895-1952, King of England) & ELIZABETH (1900-2002, Queen of Great Britain) Fine wartime christmas card addressed to Reverend Stone, (Dean of Windsor) signed by both. Under the printed message "with best wishes for Christmas and the New Year", opposite a real black and white photo of the King and Queen with their two daughters in Buckingham Palace, 6.1/4" x 5", on folded ivory card with the Royal Crest in gold embossed on the front, together with original envelope, n.p., Christmas 1944

cf. In April 1944 Beatrix's name was in The Times again. 'The Queen has bought a complete set of Beatrix Potter's "Peter Rabbit" books for children as a sequel to her recent visit to the headquarters of the Red Cross & St John Book Campaign, which the Times Book Club is organising nationally in aid of the Duke of Gloucester's Red Cross & St John Fund.' The countrywide salvage collection of paper for the war effort had resulted in more books being sent off to be pulped than were available for library issue or even for purchase, and a scheme had been set up to collect 'books of sufficient worth to be retained in circulation' which were then sold in aid of the Fund. The books were offered for sale, first to public and county librarians, and then to members of the general public. On her vist to Wigmore Street Queen Elizabeth had bought fifteen volmes from the shelves and then requested the Peter Rabbit books, only to be told that none had been donated. As luck would have it, shortly afterwards, a complete set of the little books, in the Peter Rabbit bookshelf with which they were sold at the time, was sent in from Henlye-on-Thames and dispatched at once to the Queen.

(LANE, MARGARET)

SERIES OF LETTERS

5 ALsS (all signed ``Margaret Huntingdon''), 9 1/2pp, 8vo, Dyke's Farm, Littledown, Andover, Hants., 3 November 1944 to 14 August 1945. All to Miss Margaret (``Daisy'') Hammond, the niece of Beatrix Potter's first governess, on various topics. The first letter reads as follows: (3 November 1944) ``Here is your letter, with my sincere thanks for having let me see it. I am not surprised that you treasure it, for apart from its very confidential nature, it is a wonderful letter to have had written to one. Mrs. Heelis's trust in you, & her affection, couldn't have been more completely expressed - and clearly your near presence is such a comfort & support to Mr. Heelis that everybody who knows him must be grateful to you. He looked a different man, this time, from the man he was last summer; so much more cheerful, & better in every way. I think you have worked wonders. You were both so kind to me during my few days in Sawrey that I wish I could think of an adequate way of thanking you. I do hope that if there is anything you want done in London any shopping, for instance, or other commission that I could perform - you would let me know. It would give me so much pleasure..'' Miss Hammond appears to have taken Lane up on her offer of some shopping as the next few letters concern Lane and her husband's efforts to track down some Coty bath oil for Hammond, for which she has sent a check (``I was much flattered by your trustfulness in sending an open cheque - & (so far) have resisted the temptation to fill it in for 1,000.''). In another letter (2 August 1945) we read: ``I hear rather disturbing reports of Mr. Heelis. I do hope they are not true - can you let me know how he is?. I hear that he is still in the nursing home, & not making the progress that he should. Do let me know.. Meanwhile, I hope I shall hear that you & Miss Mills are well & happy & having a peaceful summer..'' On 14 August Lane writes: ``Thank you very much for your letter, with its news of Mr. Heelis's death. With you, I feel that his death is not really sad, but a welcome escape from a very sad situation.. I'm very sorry, though, that I shan't see him again, & that he didn't live to see the finished book.. My husband and I are hoping to get up to the Lakes for a brief holiday.. I hope you will be able to show us Hill Top, & some of the portfolios of B.P.'s original paintings: being a painter himself, my husband would appreciate them so much.'' Included with these letters is a copy of the first edition of the ``finished book,'' Margaret Lane's The Tale of Beatrix Potter: A Biography (Illustrated, original cloth, dust jacket [worn, soiled, and a little torn], London: Frederick Warne & Co., Ltd., 1946) - inscribed by Lane on the front flyleaf: ``To Miss Hammond, with best wishes. Margaret Lane. June 1946.'' ALso included is a printed change-of-address card for ``The Earl & Countess of Huntingdon,'' addressed in Margaret Lane's hand to Miss Hammond and Miss Mills, and postmarked 7 January 1946. All in very good condition.

TWO LETTERS

2 ALsS (``Mrs. W. Heelis'' and ``H.B.H.''), 3pp, 8vo, Castle Cottage, Sawrey, both dated 26 June 1937, with the original envelopes (worn and soiled). The first letter is written to Ralph Cannon, trying to help with a job search: ``I hope you get the situation. It must be very hot and a bit smelly.. in summer, it is just too near the river; besides your great love of the Westmorland country, which I share.'' The second letter, written on Ralph Cannon's behalf, reads: ``I have great pleasure in recommending Ralph Cannon, whom I have known since he was a child , when his parents were in my service. Ralph was too young to work for me but I employed the elder boys to help their father who was my farm bailiff until he left through ill health. The young people were exceptionally promising all well brought up. I have never lost sight of the family. Ralph came back from Staffordshire, relinquishing a successful business for a reason that was very much to his credit, namely the strain upon his mother, who was left with none of the children within call.. I think Ralph a very capable worthy man...'' Worn and a little soiled; foxed, but good. Ralph and Betsy Cannon, the children of Joseph Cannon and his wife, were the dedicatees of Potter's The Tale of Jemima Puddle-duck, published in 1908, and where they made an appearance as well on p. 14.

POTTER, BEATRIX

Miniature Letter

c1907. Miniature manuscript letter (45x90mm) written by Beatrix Potter and sent to Lucie Carr, the dedicatee of "The Pie and the Patty Pan". Folded into self-envelope, addressed on the outside to "Mrs Duchess, Belle Green" and over printed "An answer will oblige". One edge is gilt, suggesting the Beatrix Potter made use of pre-printed notepaper to fashion these letters. The inside reads "My Dear Duchess, if you are in , will you come to tea this afternoon ? If you are out I will put this in the post and invite Cousin Tabitha Twitchit. There will be a red herring, and the patty pan are all locked up. Yr aff. friend Ribby" After the picture letters in which the author first created her immortal characters, she sent letters, purporting to be from the creatures themselves ( and they did often correspond in the tales) to the children who the recipients and dedicatees of the books.
