    Description

    The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter (F. Warne & Co.). We believe this undated book to be one of the earliest editions, though not the first edition, of this children's classic. It has brown paper-covered boards with a color pastedown picture of Peter on the cover. The endpapers feature twelve individual animal portraits. The book is in Good condition. It has loose hinges, and there's a child's handwriting (with the date 1917) on the front endpaper. From the collection of Chris Bell.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
