        The Tale of Benjamin Bunny

      London: Frederick Warne and Co, 1904. London: Frederick Warne and Co,, 1904. Sextodecimo. Original grey paper-covered boards, printed in dark green, illustration mounted on front board, pictorial endpapers. Frontispiece and 26 colour illustrations by Beatrix Potter. Spine gently rolled and lightly tanned, superficial tear to lower half of rear joint, one inner hinge cracked but still holding firm, occasional minor mark to contents. A bright copy in excellent condition. First edition, first impression. Potter's introduction of Peter Rabbit's cousin Benjamin, the fourth of her books to be published. While Potter "was still working on the proofs and final drawings for The Tailor of Gloucester in the summer of 1903, the publishers asked her about another book. She responded to Norman Warne, 'I had been a little hoping too that something might be said about another book, but I did not know that I was the right person to make the suggestion!'" (Grinstein, 81). Potter intentionally shied away from what she regarded as the complexity of Tailor and Squirrel Nutkin when crafting this tale. She "prepared the text with great care, having tried it out on various children she knew" (Linder, 145). Her lovely backgrounds depict the garden at Fawe Park near Keswick, where she spent the summer of 1903. Ultimately, Benjamin Bunny - whose title character shared the name of Potter's own pet rabbit - "may be understood as an epilogue to The Tale of Peter Rabbit. In it, Potter undoes a number of the anxiety elements present in the first story as well as in some in the story of Squirrel Nutkin. In this way she brings about a satisfactory resolution of the two stories, almost as if she were now finishing them with a fairy tale ending" (Grinstein, 81-83). First edition, first issue, with "muffatees" (as opposed to "muffetees" in second issue onward) and "we" in Roman type (as opposed to italics in second issue onward) on page 15. Issued in both grey and tan paper boards, no priority.

Dücker (1841-1916) fort. 1888-1890 folgte ein Würzburg-Aufenthalt.

Zwischen 1915 und 1939 unternahm er zahlreiche kleinere Reisen nach Kronberg. 1898 war er Mitbegründer der Berliner Sezession, deren Ausstellungen er regelmäßig beschickte. 1919 wurde er Mitglied der Preußischen Akademie. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er eng mit Max Liebermann (1847-1935) zusammen und wird zum Kreis um L. Corinth (1858-1935) gezählt. Philipp Franck, der eine grundlegende Reform des Zeichenunterrichts in Preußen durchsetzte, verfaßte hierzu zwei Handbücher für den Zeichen- und Kunstunterricht.

It connected Kumming in Yunnan with Haiphone in Vietnam (the nearest seaport to Kumming) a journey which took 28 days prior to the completion of this extraordinary project.
