Notes

First edition, first issue, with "London & New York" on the rear cover. Shops were reluctant to stock this and Miss Moppet, the only other book by Potter published in this form, because they are awkward for small hands to handle and easily damaged. Both were eventually reprinted in book form in 1916. A Fierce Bad Rabbit was written at the prompting of Beatrix Potter's niece, Louie, who told her aunt that "Peter was much too good a rabbit, and she wanted a story about a really naughty one!"
