New York: Frederick Warne & Co., n.d. (1910). Early US Edition. Hardcover. Good. Item #17140
1910. 85pp. 4 by 5-3/4 inches. Wine maroon boards with hexagonal colored paste-on on front board. Lettered in white. First American edition variant: the address for Warne is given as 36 East 22d St. Earlier than Quinby's 18A. The earliest edition in Quinby is listed as published between 1913 and 1918. This copy must have been printed in 1910 as Warne was at the 36 East 22d St. address only through 1910. This endpapers in this issue are the same as those of the English first edition, cf. Quinby #18, Plate X , rather than Plate XII as called for in #18A except they are reversed with Peter Rabbit on the front free endpaper instead of on the pastedown. Spine totally perished; boards worn at edges; else a good copy and with no attempt at restoration; protected in a custom clamshell box.
