The Tale of Peter Rabbit. A New Printing from the original line-blocks made for the first Private Edition of 1901. Introduced by Maurice Sendak.
Kingston, New York: Battledore, 1995. Small 8vo, 26 pages of text in printed wrappers, 34 original prints within printed folders, all enclosed in a cloth clamshell box. New. Limited to 250 copies signed by Maurice Sendak and Iain Bain (the printer). This evocative series of prints from the original blocks is as they were originally intended to be seen by Potter even though most of us are more familiar with the color-printed versions from later editions. In their simplicity they are both classic and strangely contemporary.
