Description:
London: William Heinemann; New York: George H. Doran Company. 1922. First edition, first printing, American issue. First edition, first printing, American issue. Publisher's original pictorial paper-covered boards in dustwrapper. Illustrated with four full page and three double page richly coloured lithographs by William Nicholson. A superb, very near fine copy, the binding square and firm, without paper loss and with a little bumping at the lower edge. The contents are spotlessly clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the near fine, very lightly rubbed and dusty dustwrapper that has a couple of tiny nicks at the folds without loss. Both the book and the dustwrapper are entirely without repair or restoration. Housed in a bespoke quarter morocco solander case. This copy is the earliest state of the American issue, the printed paper covered boards a slightly different shade and a few millimetres taller than the UK issue. Correctly dated 1922 and… Read more

Description:
New York & London: George H. Doran & Heinemann, 1922. First edition. Fine in very good plus jacket.. First printing, American issue, of the beloved children's classic, the only printing with the dazzling original color lithographs by Nicholson. This book captures the wistful attachment to our childhood toys through the story of a stuffed rabbit that hopes the love of its owner can make it real. It is one of the great collaborations in modern children's books, with the lithographs and the text equally invoking bittersweet affection: "You were Real to the Boy [...] because he loved you." Later printings did not use lithography to produce Nicholson's drawings, making the first printing especially distinctive in the quality of its lustrous illustrations. This is a remarkable copy of "one of the first modern picture books, a perfect combination of story and pictures" (Mahony). Scarce, and even moreso in the unrestored original dust jacket. 9.5'' x 7''. Original pictorial paper boards. Original pictorial… Read more

Description:
New York: George H. Doran, 1922. First Edition; American issue. Publisher’s illustrated paper-covered boards; only very slight wear; fine in a lightly soiled dust jacket. Printed and, apparently, entirely produced by Heinemann in London, the American issue (likely done in a small number) differs from its English counterpart in adding Doran to the title page imprint, and using a slightly different shade of paper for the binding. The jacket of the London edition was used, printing the Heinemann logo at the foot of the spine, with no indication of its American publisher, nor a dollar-denominated price. The London-born author spent much of her childhood in the United States, moved back to London, returning to America in 1921. In a custom quarter-morocco clamshell box.
