THE TALES OF BEATRIX POTTER

by Beatrix Potter

Following the success of our limited edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit last year we have reissued the next two Tales in collectible matching bindings.

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin
Not a good advertisement for red squirrels, Nutkin is excessively impertinent and eventually is taught a sharp lesson by Old Brown the owl.
£9.99 Hardback limited edition of 1,500

The Tailor of Gloucester
This was Beatrix Potter’s favourite among all her books and is based on a true story; the mice, in reality, were the kindly assistants of the tailor. Each book is hand numbered, with gilt edges, a ribbon marker and enchanting patterned endpapers.
£9.99 Hardback limited edition of 1,500

The Tale of Peter Rabbit
For those of you who missed the first edition we have now published matching un-numbered copies of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The first edition of this book was very different to the one we know now; handwritten with black-and-white line drawings and a colour frontispiece, it was produced primarily for Beatrix Potter’s friends and family. Hatchards was one of the few bookshops to sell it.
£9.99 Hardback
