First edition; the first two impressions are identical. The Tale of Pigling Bland is the nineteenth book by Beatrix Potter, and was the last book written before her marriage to William Heelis. With her marriage and the outbreak of the First World War, Beatrix's focus increasingly turned from the Peter Rabbit series to farming. Her failing eyesight and farming duties made more onerous by the onset of war meant that she would not produce another book until 1917.
