First edition, first printing. Signed by the author to lower front of the title page, “Hand coloured by Grace F. Hawes”. Each page features a delightful bunny illustration followed by a verse. A very scarce title with only one showing on OCLC at the Cotsen Library of Princeton. The Cotsen Library notes that, “The illustrations, reversed, inverted and freely rendered are taken from the Tale of Peter Rabbit.”

Slender Folio. Pictorial printed boards. Hand coloured illustrations by the author. Extremities lightly rubbed, corners and tail of spine lightly worn, boards lightly soiled, front hinge weak. A very good copy.
