        Collection of Christmas cards.

      1896-1905. Two mats with multiple openings,4ff. A collection of ten color Christmas cards designed by Georgie Gaskin for Laurence W. Hodson and his family. The printed versions of the cards are accompanied by a hand-colored rough illustration of three children at play that went unused. This collection also contains an original drawing and two proofs, including one that is hand-colored, of one of the cards depicting Santa Claus, heavily laden with sacks of toys, bestowing gifts upon two of the Hodsons' children. The drawing is initialed and dated 1896. The color printed cards are displayed in two mats with five openings each. They feature delicate vining borders intertwined with banners that extend the Christmas greeting for that year. The subjects of the cards include the Hodson children at play and nativity scenes, and one contains a calendar for the year 1905. Georgie Gaskin and her husband, Arthu were heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. Though Arthur Gaskin illustrated books, including The Shepheard's Calendar by the Kelmscott Press, the couple was more well known for their elegant handmade jewelry. Georgie designed the jewelry, which often featured elaborate flowering vines, a characteristic that can readily be seen in these Christmas card designs. The original drawing has a few spots of discoloration, not affecting the image; otherwise, the items in this collection are in fine condition.

Spine darkened with a couple of spots, some fading to boards, small repaired split to top of upper joint, some foxing most noteably to first and last few leaves. First edition of Simon's first book. Andre Simon was a wine connoisseur, historian, importer and author.

Shortly after arriving Simon embarked upon his first book The History of the Champagne Trade in England. "Simon's English prose style: [is] unmistakably charming, stately and faintly whimsical at once."(High Johnson, Oxford Wine Companion). This was to be the first of over 100 books and pamphlets penned by Simon on wine and food. This copy is inscribed by Simon on the front-free endpaper. "With the author's compliments Andre L Simon 11.12.08." A final line of the inscription below this has been inked out. Also with the ownership name of wine merchant R Denny above the inscription.

        A Staff Officer's Scrap-Book During the Russo-Japanese War.

      8vo. 2 volumes. Bound in full tree-calf by T. Hunt of Wellington College, decorative gilt border with the Wellington College crest to the upper board, spine in 6 compartments with five raised bands and red leather label, gilt decorations, marbled edges and endpapers; photographic frontispiece to each volume, numerous illustrations, maps and sketches; fine; provenance: with the bookplates of General Sir Richard Edward Worsley pasted to each ffep. First edition. General Sir Ian Hamilton (1853 - 1947) is best remembered for commanding the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force during the Battle of Gallipoli, a disastrous campaign that resulted in him being relieved of his command. The notes for this book were taken between 1904 and 1905 when Hamilton served as the military attaché of the Indian Army serving with the Japanese during the Russo-Japanese War. A Staff Officer's Scrap-Book gained wide acclaim, cited by Britannica as "a book which by reason of the interest of its subject, the charm of the author's style, and the combination of war experience and of imagination which inspired his judgments and criticisms, at once took rank in Europe as a modern military classic."

        Chess in Icelandic Literature with Historical Notes on other Table-Games

      Florence: The Florentine Typographical Society, 1905. ix+400 pages with frontispiece, one illustration and diagrams and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 3/4") bound in original brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Betts: 6-33) First edition.Also published in New York, Stechart, 1915. Includes an account of chess in Iceland (chapters: Polar chess, Chess in the sagas, The story of Frithiof) whence it came from England in the 12th century, and it developed peculiarities in rule and nomenclature which existed until the 19th century. Only part (about on-seventh) of the book concerns chess, the remainder ("Stray notes") deals with the Europeans history of a group of other games: draughts, fox and geese, tables, merelles, or the morris game, etc. Fiske was born on November 11, 1831 in Ellisburg, New York. He attended Cazenovia Seminary, New York and Hamilton college in Clinton, New York. During his sophomore year, he left Hamilton to study Scandinavian languages in Europe, supporting himself as a correspondent for the New York Tribune. He spent his last two years in the Uppsala University in Sweden, also supporting himself by teaching English. In 1852, he returned to the U.S. and took a job as a librarian at the Astor Library in N.Y. During his stay at Astor Library, Fiske began his personal library containing a collection of Icelandic books which would become the largest in America as well as other topics such as Persian texts and philological works. Fiske, an avid chess player, was approached by Hardman Phillips Montgomery, a former postmaster of Philadelphia, about staging a contest between the three best chess players in the U. S. Fiske liked the idea, but not known for thinking small and quite aware of the importance of the London International Tournament in 1851, he proposed instead a National Tournament at which players from all over the country could meet and test themselves, but also at which the leading chess players could establish an organization to promote and encourage chess in America as well as establish standard rules of play. And so through Fiske the 1st American Chess Congress was conceived. Through the Congress, he met and became a close friend to the chess prodigy, Paul Morphy. Afterwards he wrote what most chess scholars consider one of the finest tournament books, the Book of the American Chess Congress. For the next few years, he edited the American Chess Monthly, with Paul Morphy listed as nominal co-editor. When Fiske failed to receive an expected promotion at the Astor Library in 1859, he resigned and took a position as secretary of the American Geographical Society where he remained until 1861 when he was attached to the American Legation to Vienna, serving under John Lothrop Motley. Returning to the U.S. in 1864, he was made editor of the Syracuse Daily Journal until 1866, followed by that of the Hartford Courant. In 1868 Fiske traveled to Egypt and Palestine, acting as a correspondent for several newspapers and upon his return in January of 1869 accepted the position as Professor of Northern European Languages and as Head Librarian for the new Cornell University. Fiske held these positions until his resignation in 1883. In 1879 Fiske visited Iceland for his first and only time. He edited the first Icelandic Chess Magazine in 1901 (published in Venice) and donated thousands of chess books to the Icelandic libraries. In 1905 Fiske's famous book, Chess in Iceland and in Icelandic Literature was published posthumously.

        Papeles de Nueva España

      Madrid and Mexico City: Establecimiento tipografia and Vargas Rea, 1905?-1948. 37 volumes. 6 volumes bound in red cloth with original wrappers bound in, the other volumes bound in wrappers. Various sizes from Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 7") to octavo (8" x 6") From the library of George M Foster. Handbook of Middle American Indians, volume 13. 1st editionModern scholarship continues to be deeply indebted to the labors of Francisco del Paso y Troncoso, less for any extended completed studies or synthesis than for a lifetime of collecting historical materials of the greatest importance to continuing investigation. His activities in Europe during the 23 years he spent searching out, copying and preparing for publication a vast store of prime documentary materials for the pre-Conquest and colonial history of Mexico have been abundantly documented. Paso y Troncoso saw his prime mission as twofold. First, he proposed to gather and publish as complete a corpus of Sahagun documents as possible. His interest in the great Franciscan had stemmed from the days when Paso y Troncoso as a young man had helped Joaquin Garcia Icazbalceta prepare the latter's Bibliografia mexicana del siglo XVI. Second, he expected to copy documentary source materials related to colonial Mexico, an elaborate group of varied papers which he generically called "Papeles de Nueva Espana." In a letter from Madrid, Paso y Troncoso outlined to the Secretary of Public Instruction his views and plans for the "Papeles de Nueva Espana". He mentioned that for various reasons the material had he had compiled for publication under that general title should be divided into series, each according to the class of data it contained. Each series would begin with a volume 1, and subsequent volumes would include similar documents, rather than being only a single series with diverse materials. Various circumstances frustrated Paso y Troncoso's dream of putting numerous volumes of several series each of the PNE into print. He published four relatively complete volumes, and two partial volumes, of Series 2. "Geography and Statistics." Complete were volumes 1, 4, 5, 6 and partially complete were volumes 3 and 7 (all included in these volumes). At Paso y Troncoso's death various works were in the printing houses of Spain. Most of these volumes seem to have been lost or dispersed. Only volume 1 of series was published, Salazar's Cronica de Nueva Espana (lacking in these volumes, but offered separately by the Hispanic Society). Several later hands have dipped into the mass of material Paso y Troncoso compiled for PNE and have utilized his transcripts or copies for publication. Series 1, "Bibliographies," was respectably issued in four volumes under the general title Indices de documentos de Nueva Espana existentes en el Archivo de Indias de Sevilla, 1928-1933 lacking in these volumes. The unpublished portions of Series 2, volume 2 "Geography and Statistics," have appeared under the imprint of Luis Vargas Rea included in these volumes. Vargas Rea in his supplement to Series 2, volume 3, in 7 parts included in these volumes did not complete the reports on the archdiocese of Mexico. From 1944 through 1946, Vargas Rea published most of the hitherto unpublished materials Paso y Troncoso had compiled for volume 7, Relationes geograficas from Michoacan. Six of the eight parts are included in these volumes. In 1948 Volume 9 of PNE, Series 2, appeared under the Vargas Rea imprint in seven small volumes included in these volumes It reproduced what Paso y Troncoso had considered to be the second part of the Memoriales of Bishop Alonso Mota y Escobar, a portion dealing with Nueva Galicia from a manuscript he had found in the British Museum. The whole of the Vargas Rea publications were numbered limited edition prints usually not exceeding 150 and often not more than 100 copies. Thus making the entire printing of Paso y Troncoso vary scarce.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:George Foster's stamp on front wrappers, edge wear, some soiling else a very good set of a rare piece of Colonial Mexican history.

Light toning associated with aging of original protective lacquer coating. Overall very good, bright and clean condition. A visually stunning and detailed bird's eye view of the Spokane area, published by J.W. Graham & Co., a paper and stationery supply store. In 1898 the main commercial area of Spokane had suffered a devastating fire; along with loss of life, there had been hundreds of thousands of dollars of property damage to Spokane, including the total loss of the Graham store, then located in the Great Eastern block (built in 1890 at a cost of $250,000). A mere 7 years later J.W. Graham & Co. trumpeted the resurgence of the Inland Empire, and their business, in this huge bird's eye view image. The legend along the lower edge identifies 74 sites, including two J.W. Graham locations one of which is a warehouse; there is an inset at the upper left edge of the military post Fort Wright....

        Serat Menak [ The Book of Menak]....

      1905. 276 pages of Javanese manuscript written in the hanacaraka script in a lined journal, double card covers have separated on the lower cover and a few unrelated printed leaves in Dutch (including a form in Dutch authorising someone to collect wood!) bound in presumably to give the covers strength are now visible. Even browning, some occasional stains in the margins, insect damage at lower corner last two leaves not affecting text, one leaf written upside down, first leaf creased, binding skewed and worn but still sound. A very nice manuscript copy of an important Javanese work. 35 x 20.5cm. This manuscript is of The Javanese Menak which are romances inspired by stories of Persian origin based on the adventures of Amir Hamzah or Amir Ambyah, the uncle of the prophet Muhammad. The MS is written in a clear hand in Javanese hanacaraka script.Some initial leaves give a list of the contents of the book as well as a history of its provenance which states that this is a book of Menak, written by Sumantri in Blora, bought by Mas Martosudirjo, head teacher in Blora, 1905 and signed by Martosudirjo.The preliminary leaves are followed by the manscript of the story itself which is in macapat verse beginning in Durma metre. A small notation in the top left corner of p.1 of the MS seems to indicate that the writing of the manuscript was begun on May 12th, 1905 and completed on September 12th 1905.

        Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques & Discoveries.

      Glasgow: Maclehose, 1903-1905. Twelve volumes, octavo, illustrated throughout with maps (many folding), proof impressions of the plates; essentially an excellent set in the original quarter parchment gilt over blue cloth boards, top edges gilt others uncut. A fine set of the famous Maclehose edition of Hakluyt. This handsome production reprints the second and best edition of Hakluyt's magnum opus, a classic of travel literature, the first English collection of voyages, and one of the gems of Elizabethan letters. Hakluyt himself was 'the first lecturer on modern geography and one of the leading spirits of Elizabethan maritime expansion' (PMM). The work is devoted to American discoveries and the British colonisation of America, and although published a few years before the Dutch voyage of the Duyfken to the west coast of Cape York in 1605, it is significant that by the time of the revised second edition, Hakluyt was able to include the first tentative forays of the English into the South Seas, whether round Cape Horn or through the Straits of Magellan. As a result, Hakluyt's book represents the pinnacle of Elizabethan geography, but is also among the earliest published works on British expansion into the Pacific.The final part, originally published in 1600, includes most of the New World material, not only cataloguing many of the early American discoveries, but also representing the cusp of early voyages into the Pacific, notably in the section entitled "A Catalogue of divers English voyages, some intended and some performed to the Streights of Magellan, the South Sea... to the headland of California, and to the Northwest... ". Printed here are not only reports of the voyages of Drake and several of his compatriots, there is an early account of the important 1586 voyage of Thomas Cavendish, and discussions of major voyages which were destined for the South Seas but failed to round Cape Horn, including those of Edward Fenton (intended for China), Robert Withrington, and the failed 1591 second voyage of Cavendish.The Maclehose edition is considered the finest modern edition of Hakluyt. It was published as the first twelve numbers of the "Extra Series" of the Hakluyt Society. This is the deluxe issue, from an edition of 100 copies, without the limitation leaf (apparently so issued).

Hosie, His Majesty's Consul-General at Chengtu, on a Journey to the Eastern Frontier of Thibet. Folding colour map. 87pp. Disbound, each report separate. Quarto. Very good copies. These five reports by (Sir) Alexander Hosie (1853-1925) of the British Consular Service in China record journeys he made in Western China in the early 1880s and again in the early 1900s. They were all considered valuable by the British Ministers to China of the day, and were printed for the information of both Houses of the British Parliament.The earlier reports are mainly on travel in the western provinces, then not as well-explored or well-known as they had become by the time of his later journeys, and one was specifically concerned with investigating insect white wax, a valuable local export commodity and securing specimens of the trees from which it was taken, as requested by the Director of Kew Gardens. Hosie's accounts create a vivid picture of people and places, officials and soldiers, trade routes and burden bearers, products and scenery, mountains and rivers, and we can form a view of the man himself, and of his humanity. They were all made at first hand, for in his three years in West China, Hosie is credited with having travelled 5,000 miles, mainly on foot and horseback. (P.D. Coates - The China Consuls (Hong Kong, OUP, 1988), p. 313.) The record of the journey to the Tibetan frontier in mid 1904 took place when a British force crossed into Southern Tibet, overcame opposition, and occupied the capital Lhasa. In fact, Hosie was on the Chinese frontier at that very time, and was not permitted to cross into Tibetan territory. Always a shrewd observer, Hosie was also an accomplished writer who could entertain as well as inform. His account of this journey is one of his best.The other 1904 publication is devoted to a detailed description of the products of Western China, listed under vegetable, animal and mineral heads, and ends with his opinion that, however desirable, promotion of the export trade by any seem-ingly possible river route was in fact impractical.Along with Hosie's reports on other travels conducted in the 1890s when he had twice been British Consul at Newchang in Manchuria, and the account of his later travels to check the location and extent of cultivation of the opium poppy in the early 1910s, the reports on China's western provinces were also used in the four books which he published on these subjects between 1890 and 1922: namely, Three Years in Western China .. (editions in 1890 and 1897); Manchuria: Its People, Resources and History (1904); On the Trail of the Opium Poppy . , two vols, 1914); and Szechuan: Its Products, Industries and Resources, 1922).These books notwithstanding, the official publications, which contain the original accounts and are well produced (the last two with large folding maps) have an abiding charm and long-term value of their own.

        Autograph letter on a postal card to composer and conductor Curt Schindler, signed "Dr. Rich. Strauss."

      Dated Marquartstein, Oberbaiern, July 2, 1905. In ink. In German (with translation). Strauss has received a printed copy of Oscar Wilde's play, Salome, from America. He urges Schindler to reassure a certain Dr. M. about some unfounded rumors from London, and asks him how much more a copyist, Rabbeis, has to write. "I have just received a very handsome printed copy of the French S[alome] from America... The London rumors are baseless; calm Dr. M!" Somewhat worn and creased; two small tears to edges. Less than two weeks before he penned this letter, Strauss had completed the full score of his opera, Salome, which he had adapted from Hedwig Lachmann's German translation of Oscar Wilde's eponymous play. (Indeed, his inquiries about [R.?] "Rabbeis," whose name appears on one of Arnold Schoenberg's lists of available copyists, may refer to the copying of orchestral scores or parts of the opera). As the present letter indicates, Strauss was very keen to obtain Wilde's original - if idiosyncratic - French text, from which he hoped to construct his own French-language version of the opera. With the help of Romain Rolland, he succeeded and, although his plans to stage it at the Opéra Comique in Paris never materialized, it was favorably received at the Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels on March 25, 1907; the highly successful premiere of the original German version had, of course, already taken place at the Dresden Hofoper on December 9, 1905. Kurt Schindler (1882-1935) was an American composer, conductor, and folksong collector of German birth.

Strand, Ejnar Hertzsprung, 1873-1967, Publ. Astron. Soc. Pacific 80 (1968) pp.51-56. - FIRST EDITION and presentation copy of the very rare offprint with "Überreicht vom Verfasser" printed on front wrapper upper right. In 1905 Hertzsprung published the article "Zur Strahlung der Sterne", unfortunately in the - astronomical and academically - obscure journal "Zeitschrift für Wissenschaftliche Photographie, Photophysik und Photochemie" in which he positioned his observations and the results in tables, not in figures and diagrams. In his paper Zur Strahlung der Sterne (on the radiation of stars), "Hertzsprung showed, ?rst, that stars with very sharp absorption lines in Antonia Maury's classi?cation system were more luminous than others - a discovery that became the foundation of the method of stellar parallax - and, second, that stars could be classi?ed in two series, the main sequence (in modern parlance) and the high-luminosity giant stars when plotted in a diagram of intrinsic luminosity vs. temperature. Because of the appearance of these results in a photography journal, it had little impact in the astronomical community, and it was not until the same relationship had been discovered by Henry Norris Russell, several years later, that Hertzsprung's discoveries were recognized. The diagram became known as the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram." (K. van Berkel et al., The History of Science in the Netherlands, 1999, p.460). Hertzsprung's work on the radiation of stars was reprinted in Oswalds Klassiker der exakten Wissenschaften, Vol. 255. Very Good.

      - Farbholzschnitt, auf dünnem Japan, signiert und als &#132;Originalholzschnitt, Handdruck." bezeichnet. Darstellungsgröße 28:20,5 cm, Blattgröße 36:25,5 cm. Helene Mass war Schülerin von Walter Leistikow in Berlin. Er dürfte ihr den Farbholzschnitt nahe gebracht haben. Vermutlich begann ihre Beschäftigung mit dieser graphischen Technik um oder nach 1905. Ihre Blätter sind stets sehr koloristisch aufgefaßt und zeichnen sich durch satte Farbgebungen aus. Es sind Darstellungen von Landschaften und Gärten, meist aus beengtem Blickwinkel gesehen. Häufig geht ein Ölgemälde voraus bzw. besteht eine enge Verwandtschaft zwischen der Malerei und der Graphik. (Vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Daniel Studer, Faszination Farbholzschnitt.

Helene Mass war Mitglied der Berliner Sezession, an deren Ausstellungen sie von Beginn an beteiligt war. 1919-20 besuchte sie einen Vorkurs bei Johannes Itten (1888-1977) am Bauhaus in Weimar.

        224 Original Watercolour Paintings, Rendering Scenes from Travels to Egypt, the West Indies, Australia, Europe and More.

      1905. Watercolour views from around the world, 1905-1949, made by May Joscelyne who was connected to the family of Jasper Moon of Llanymynech. Each painting on a separate leaf of art paper, oone hundred and ninety-nine of which measure approximately 25 x 17 cm, and twenty-five being slightly smaller at approximately 17 x 12 cm (or in between the two sizes). Several are captioned and dated in manuscript by the artist to verso. Occasional tears to margins, otherwise in very good condition, lovely nostalgic views of the world in watercolour. From the estate sale of wealthy shipper Jasper Moon (1881-1975), of White Rock House, situated in hills half a mile from the village of Llanymynech which straddles the English and Welsh border. Jasper Moon's daughter Ursula (born 1912) married Peter Harry Joscelyne (died 1958), May Joscelyne therefore possibly being his mother or an aunt. Peter's father was Dr. F.P. Joscelyne of Cornwall, England, District Surgeon & Beaufort Estates Medical Officer. Little is known of the female artist May Joscelyne, apart from her connection to the Moon family, and that she died in 2012 at the notable age of 104. In the same year, the White Rock House and estate at Llanymynech was sold, including the present archive of her watercolours. May's art work reveals that she enjoyed the privileged available to the upper class, such as extensive around the world. The highlight of the lot are the paintings made in Egypt and the Sudan in 1923. At least 17 photographs are identified as being from Egypt; there may be more. These includes paintings of the Pyramids and Sphynx of Giza, White Nile scenes, views of Assouan (Aswan), the city of Cairo and its striking mosque minarets, a view of Luxor from the Nile with a felucca in the foreground, and the Red Sea. One image of three small pyramid tombs is captioned "Kassala Desert" which is in the Sudan, possibly depicting the Pyramids at Jebel Barkal in the Sudan. Travelling to the extremities of the African continent, in Morocco she paints the Koutoubia Mosque minaret tower of Marrakesh, in South Africa, Table Mountain, the vast plains and Iron Mountain [Yzerberg] in the Zoutspanberg district of Transavaal, White River, and Hermanus Island off of Cape Town. Seven or more paintings capture Hawaii's splendour back in 1937. Tranquil views include Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach, Cooper Island of the Palmyra Atoll, and Honolulu Harbour. Spectacular beaches of the West Indies are well represented as she memorializes her voyage to Montego Bay in Jamaica, to Haiti, and in Martinique 1935. A rocky coastal view is captioned 'Old Panama.' Vivid colours and tropical flora are accentuated in the exquisite gardens of the Matava Hotel in Fiji, visiting there in 1949. A voyage to Australia and New Zealand was made in 1939, as seen by the artistic views of the coastline between Brisbane and Sydney, and New Zealand's spectacular lakes Lake Rotorua, Wakatipu, and Wanaka (also known as Lake Pembroke). Not far away, May also visited Kuta Beach in Bali, which is depicted in at least two of her works. The farthest voyage made was to America. A soft-hued sunset painting is captioned 'Saint Lawrence River, Quebec.' Continental sojourns took the artist to Ronda and Malaga in Spain, along the coast of Portugal affording an island view off of Cascais, to Sorrento in Italy, to France where she paints the enchanting river valley scenes of Castéra-Bouzet in 1913 as well as the Palais des Papes in Avignon and views of Dieppe, and finally up to the famous North Sea coast of Noordwijk aan Zee in The Netherlands. (The earliest views in the lot are from Europe.) With posh retreats, English gardens and more beaches to explore at home in the UK, we find views of some of the Lochs of Scotland, Kilconquhar Castle in Fife, Wales Dolgelly, Harlech, Newquay, Pembroke, Windermere Lake in Cumbria, Ullswater, and Holywell. Perhaps the most charming European scene is that of a beach lined with carts known as a bathing machines. [Around the 1750s the four-wheeled carts came into use, normally rolled out to sea by a horse. Swimwear hadn't yet been invented yet and privacy was of utmost importance, for women most certainly. Equipped with a door on each side, and a roof-top flag to notify the driver that bathing was complete, the bathing machines remained in active use on English beaches until the 1890s, when they began to be parked on the beach and used as stationary changing rooms. When legal segregation of bathing areas in Britain ended in 1901 and swimwear became acceptable, the carts became stationery beach changing rooms. Most of them had disappeared altogether in the United Kingdom by 1914, and by the 1920s, they were almost entirely extinct, except for those used by the elderly.].

        The Pie and the Patty-Pan.

      London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1905 - Quarto. Original blue boards, lettered in white on spine and front cover, front cover illustration in colour, lavender endpapers. Bookseller's price to verso head of front free endpaper, ink inscription on front free endpaper recto. Spine sunned, light staining; a very good copy. Colour frontispiece, 9 coloured plates, black and white illustrations in the text, all by the author. First edition, first impression. This was the last book Norman Warne worked on with Potter, and his proposal of marriage was sent during its creation. Potter completed the project alone; it was published two months after Warne's untimely death. It was the first of Potter's works to be published in a larger format. The illustrated endpapers, introduced the previous year, were forgotten for this work, Potter writing "I conclude there is no time to get an end-paper [sic] design done - unless Mr. Stokoe has already designed one - I do not mind one way or another" (Linder p. 172); the book appeared with plain or lavender endpapers. The later edition published in a smaller format, to match Potter's other works, was renamed The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan. Linder p. 172. [Attributes: First Edition]
