Here is a wonderful early copy of the classic Story of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. Published by the Hayes Lithographing Co (Buffalo, NY), “The Wonderland Series. Undated by circa 1908 based on the Publisher’s Weekly advertisement (see image). A rare little Peter; can’t find any other copies online. In illustrated paper-covered boards, about 28 pages, with the classic Potter illustrations, many in color.

Book is in very good condition. The cover is nice and bright, with some rubbing at edges and moderate wear to paper at spine ends. Interior is tight, with a 1911 inscription and some soiling here and there, but overall clean and a nice copy.
