About this Item

unpaginated "When Marion Merrill the young artist who has designed and retold this new edition of Beatrix Potter's greatly loved PETER RABBIT, was a very small child, her aunt read PETER RABBIT to her. The tale of the audacious rabbit became such a favourite in the Merrill family that the obliging aunt put it into verse and composed a melody for it. So on request she could either read, narrate, or sing the story that her young niece loved "best of all'." An UNCOMMON title that is clean and tight with all moveables and pop-ups intact. As published, the spiral does not run the enitire length of the spine, and there is some separation to the boards below and above the run of the spiral. INSCRIBED - "Greetings to Bunny from Jay Protas(y) - who did all color illustrations in this book" I cannot verify Jay as the illustrator. Also on title page (of interest) M. A. Werblow Sole Agent for Merrill Novelty Books. good, spiral bound boards (hardcover) w/chipped dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 046879
