The Early Edition Complete set of 23, 4 x 5.5 inch

The texture and color of these old editions are just stunning, not smooth and shiny like the newer editions, each of these books look like the front image has been cut out carefully and attached by hand..almost embossed look...they are really special!

This is a very early edition of the Complete Hardcover set of Beatrix Potter books 1 - 23 I have done a lot of research and find it difficult to date this set but they were printed before the publishers of F. Warne & Co. started listing the edition inside the cover (more recent editions say New Color Reproductions and list a date on the inside cover of 1987). This edition would be somewhere between 1930 when the last book was written and 1987 when the new reproductions were done.

Beautiful color illustrations, original covers - all complete!

condition is very good...some discoloration of the covers - some books have part of the inside flap cut out (looks like someone was removing the price?) This is not on the books but the inside flap of the cover only!

The books inside are almost perfect, great bindings and no writing or coloring inside!

The front cover of the hardcover books are a rainbow of colors with fabulous illustrations as shown in photo # 1 and include rich orange, pale blue, pale yellow and green as well as many in a natural buff color...simply stunning!! The hardcover illustrations are embossed on these very special books, quite dimensional (see photo # 3 for a close up view)...later editions have a smooth cover and image.
