Description

Here is a beautiful little copy of the classic Peter Rabbit, illustrated by Wizard of Oz illustrator John R. Neill, with original dust jacket over blue cloth binding. Copyright 1908 by Reilly & Britton, this is a circa 1922 (last title listed in rear advertisement is Kabumpo in Oz) Reilly & Lee printing. One of the Children’s Red Books series, it includes the Dick Wittington and his Cat story as well. Contains lavish color endpapers, a color title page and frontispiece, and color illustrations on many of the 58 pages.

Book is in very good condition. The cover pastedown is clean and bright, and cloth is in good shape, but there is some discoloration on back cover near spine as shown. Inside, endpapers and pages are nice and clean w/o tears or writing, although ownership page is filled in. Jacket is good, basically complete but with some edge tears and small chips as shown. In a mylar-type jacket for protection. Tough to find with in the jacket in any condition, and one of the most beloved titles in the series.
