Order Nr. 65107

First edition, first printing. Spine slightly sunned, else a near fine copy. Published as a companion to the 1987/88 exhibition at the Tate Gallery in London and The Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, this is the most comprehensive exploration of the art of Beatrix Potter ever published. The influences of contemporary artists including her own family, her flowering as an artist and as the author of the Peter Rabbit books, and her later life as farmer and conservationist, are shown through more than 450 color and black and white reproductions of her work, many published for the first time in this book.
