The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
Published 1908, New York by Hurst & Company. By Selden W. Anderson.
c. 100 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout in color. 

Early American pirate edition of this classic story from Beatrix Potter.

Publisher's cloth binding, chromolithographed pictorial paste down.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.

Binding gently age worn, color paste-down to cover slightly rubbed/ worn away, text block a bit shaken with some rear pages protruding slightly from text block, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, book remains overall attractive as an object.

Paper is gently toned, internally still quite clean, tight, sound internally. Seems nicer overall than typical for cloth juveniles of this era.

Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detail showing how this book survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books, maps and printed ephemera of all types and genres. Flaws seen and/ or described have been taken into account.
