The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
London: Frederick Warne and Co.,, [1902]. Sextodecimo. Original grey paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front board white, grey leaf-patterned endpapers. Frontispiece and 30 colour illustrations by the author. Pages nice and clean, expertly re-cased using matching paper at the joints, minor nick to tip of spine, a very good copy. First trade edition, second or third impression (the green boards were introduced after the first impression; in all other respects the three impressions are indistinguishable). With the original leaf-pattern endpapers and with "wept big tears" on p. 51 (the text reads "cried big tears" in the privately printed edition; "wept big tears" in the first three impressions of the trade edition; and "shed big tears" from the fourth impression onwards).
