1909 The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies
What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
The first edition, the first or second impression, which were indistinguishable from one another, with the notice board illustration to page 14, reading "Peter Rabbit & Mother - Florists - Gardens neatly razed. Borders devastated by the night or year".
A charming tale regarding the children of Benjamin Bunny and Flopsy, after they are captured by Mr. McGregor.
Beautifully illustrated in colour in Potter's typical style, with a colour frontispiece, and twenty-six colour plates.
In the original paper covered boards. Externally, lacking the backstrip. Minor marks to the boards. A small amount of loss of paper to the rear board. Very light bumping to the extremities. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean with a few light spots and handling marks. Plate to page 41 is torn with no loss, tear not affecting illustration.
