Listing Detail Tabs

"The Tale of Peter Rabbit" was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tale.

This edition, with reoriginated illustrations and type, marked the 2002 centenary of the first publication by Frederick Warne in 1902. Taking the first edition as a guide, the aim was to follow faithfully Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefitting from advances in modern printing and design techniques. The colours and detail of the watercolours are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it was also possible to disguise the damage that affected the artwork over the years.

The text is reset in a period typeface of the right weight to harmonise with the delicacy of the pictures.

Most notably this edition restored six extra illustrations. Four of these pages were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers. The other two pages had never been used before, Beatrix Potter having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format.

2002 Edition - Uncorrected Proof.

Written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943). Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous little books. A particular source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
