Revised Edition. 446 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w and colour illustrations. "In this detailed and authoritative book, Leslie Linder not only tells the tale behind the 'Tales' - the history of how each book in the famous 'Peter Rabbit' series began to be written - he also reveals a wealth of Beatrix Potter's writing which is not published in any other form elsewhere. Beatrix Potter's letters are featured here too. The correspondence between Frederick Warne and their best-selling author provides a fascinating commentary on the stories she wrote, and an insight into her character. She was very particular about her writing, often revising the same story until it was to her satisfaction; several of these versions are quoted, including the privately printed edition of 'The Tailor of Gloucester'. There are unpublished 'Appley Dapply' rhymes, plays and Beatrix Potter's text for the painting books. Lesser known books, 'Sister Anne', a surprisingly gruesome tale about Bluebeard, and 'The Tale of the Faithful Dove', and two delightful versions of 'Wag-by-Wall' are discussed. She occasionally wrote articles for newspapers, and one year she even tried her hand at politics. Fourteen pictures letters are also reproduced, amongst them the 'Peter Rabbit' picture letter to Noel Moore, which started it all. This new edition of Leslie Linder's classic work has been thoroughly revised to take account of the latest information and publishing history of Beatrix Potter's writings. An important feature is the new and interesting selection of illustrations in colour and b&w, which includes several items that have never been published before." Minor soiling to edges of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, several tiny bumps on bottom edge of rear board, two page leaves with small crease at bottom corner. Dust jacket has light rubbing, light edge wear/wrinkling, small taped edge tear with creases, light browning at top edge of flaps. Codice libro della libreria 27704
