First edition, first printing, of this charming novelty presentation. “The diminutive 1946 rabbit-fur-bound edition had proven difficult to store (moths got into Harper’s warehouse, destroying a large quantity of the first printing)” (Marcus 33) and later editions had imitation fur or none at all. Margaret Wise Brown was to a degree obsessed with fur, even having some of her personal books covered in rabbit fur.

Miniature format (82 54 mm). Original boards covered in rabbit fur, in the original illustrated box with die-cut window exposing the bear’s tummy. colour illustrations by Garth Williams Just a touch of fur loss to top edge, in the original pictorial box which is lightly toned and with light wear to corners. An excellent copy.
