On September 4th, 1893 Beatrix Potter wrote a picture letter to five-year old Noel Moore which 'My dear Noel, I don't know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits whose names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter.' Eight years later, in 1901 Beatrix Potter privately published an illustrated story called The Tale of Peter Rabbit, which was based on this letter. It was taken up by a commercial publisher within a year and became a bestseller. The Tale of Peter Rabbit and the twenty-two books that followed in the series are among the most successful children's books in the world. All Beatrix Potter's twenty-three tales and verses are brought together in this volume. The texts are complete and unabridged and all the original illustrations, both colour and black and white, are included. All the reproductions have been made using the most modern electronic scanning methods from entirely new transparencies of Beatrix Potter's original illustrations, so that their delicate detail can be seen to the finest advantage. This classic, complete collection invites you to follow the adventures of Peter Rabbit and all his friends and enter the magic world of Beatrix Potter, which remains as vivid and appealing as when it began - with a picture letter to a small boy at the turn of the century.
