Notes

First trade edition, deluxe issue binding. Only this work and The Tailor of Gloucester were issued in the present patterned cloth, provided by Beatrix Potter's grandfather's calico printing factory in Manchester, at her request. The art fabric binding, which Potter referred to as "a flowered lavender chintz, very pretty" has vellum labels used for the title and author's name, as it was impracticable to print directly onto the fabric. The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin was first printed privately in 1902, with the trade edition appearing in August 1903.
