I’m sure we all recognize the name Peter Rabbit but how many of you have seen an edition like this? These two books are part of the Wee Books series of classic stories in hard-bound covers that measure just 4 3/8 by 5 ¾ inches in size. I’m sure this will make for some fun bed-time reading for future generations.
This is in amazing shape considering the 1935 date on it. Pretty incredible for someone who thinks Dr. Seuss is vintage. Even more interesting is that this book was not written by Beatrix Potter, the inventor of Peter Rabbit. Apparently, the original publisher in England, failed to register their copyright in the USA and unauthorized versions began to appear. They tried to get the rights to the troublesome little bunny back but by then, he had escaped from Mr. McGregor’s garden and was off on his own.
