THE TALE OF PIGLING BLAND
1913. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 1913. Original grey-green boards with cover pictorial onlay. First Edition of the author's nineteenth book, her second title (after THE TALE OF MR. TOD) to appear in the "New Series" that was unfortunately issued in a binding every bit as fragile as the earlier titles. ~THE TALE OF PIGLING BLAND was most probably in Beatrix Potter's mind as early as 1910... This story about Pigling Bland has an element of truth in it, for on November 17th 1909, in one of Beatrix Potter's letters... she wrote 'The two biggest little pigs have been sold, which takes away from the completeness of the family group. But they have fetched a good price, and their appetites were fearful -- five meals a day and not satisfied.' [Linder]~This is a handsome, fine copy, with essentially no wear, no soil, and no ownership inscriptions. Linder p. 429; Quinby 22.
