A Portfolio of Art Prints with an introduction by Maurice Sendak. Considered one of the greatest literary works for children, The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first privately published in 1901 in a limited edition of 250 copies and again three months later in 1902 (limited to 200 copies). Now, after nearly a century, thirty-four of the original line blocks used have been located and properly identified; they are separately re-printed for the third time only -- on fine mould-made deckle-edged 100% cotton acid free paper in a special limited edition of 250 numbered sets, each print individually certified with a stamp on its reverse attesting to its limitation. Production and design has been organized by Iain Bain — noted printing and wood engraving soecialist — working alongside Ælecto Historical Editions, who have re-struck original Audubon plates for the New York Historical Society and more recently were employed to create a definitive facsimile of William the Conqueror’s Domesday Book for the British Government. Renowned and celebrated author/artist Maurice Sendak has written an original appreciation for this series of prints, which has been letterpress printed as an accompanying booklet and signed by him on the numbered colophon leaf. The project has been coordinated by antiquarian children’s books authority Justin G. Schiller, with kind permission of Frederick Warne & Co. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Kingston NY: Battledore Ltd, 1995, 1995. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Comprising Thirty-four separate prints (using all of the surviving blocks) from the original 1901 Beatrix Potter designs, now re-struck in brown ink on mould-made deckle-edged 100% cotton acid free paper, actual printing limited to 275 numbered sets (250 numbered 1-250 + xxv 'hors commerce'), each print individually certified with a stamp on its reverse by Alecto Historical Editions. Square 16mo, accompanied by a separate booklet with an original essay written by Maurice Sendak in appreciation of these images and signed by him. Letterpress-printed (23pp + colophon), hand-sewn printed wrappers; the whole boxed together in gray cloth folding case, the front blocked with the same image on the front cover as that used on the privately printed first edition. Also signed by historical block specialist Iain Bain who supervised and designed this project. SPECIAL COPY: one of 'xxv' hors commerce, of which this is copy # 'vi' which includes an original pencil sketch by Maurice Sendak of his own interpretation of Peter Rabbit wearing its jacket; the drawing measures 1-3/8 inches (3.5 cm) height and is under the artist's signature (verso title) on the colophon page. Also with an additional print from another Beatrix Potter line-block: "Come dance a jig, to my Granny's pig", this design probably from the 1890s illustrating a nursery rhyme, and perhaps also intended as a design for a Christmas Card. Measuring 6-1/2 x 9 inches, the print comes in its own printed folder with separate descriptive commentary by Anne Stevenson Hobbs; only 125 copies were printed as a bonus to the first 100 pre-publication subscribers to the Peter Rabbit Art Prints portfolio (+ xxv copies 'hors commerce'). Signed by Author(s). Nº de ref. de la librería ABB070
