Notes

First edition, one of two indistinguishable printings of July and October 1909. The notice-board that appears in the illustration on p. 14 reads "Peter Rabbit & Mother - Florists - Gardens neatly razed. Borders devastated by the night or year"; this was replaced from the third impression onwards to avoid difficulty for foreign translators. The trade issue was bound in both brown and green paper-backed boards, without primacy.
