The first edition, dated to the title page, with Plate II endpapers in Quinby.

Beautifully illustrated in colour in Potter's typical style, with a colour frontispiece and twenty-six colour plates.
Collated, lacking page 79/80, however all plates are present.
In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. A little discolouration to the boards, heavier to the rear boards, with some minor marks to the boards. Repairs to the joints and to the head and tail of the spine, repairing small closed tears. Light bumping to the extremities. Hinges are starting but remain firm. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with a few occasional handling marks. Prior owner's stamp to the half-title. Very small patch of wear to page 52.
