  • Show me the Bunny. Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit. The 3 First Editions

    Show me the Bunny. Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit. The 3 First Editions

    I have been asked in the past, although not often, Why are there 3 first editions of Peter Rabbit? How can that be? The answer is that there aren't really.

There are three different books that are all referred to as First Edition, although qualified with the necessary publishing details as well, so we have ...

  • Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - Louisa May Alcott

    Collecting Rare Books and First Editions - Louisa May Alcott

    Louisa May Alcott (1832) is best remembered for her novels Little Women (1868), Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886), a trilogy set in Concord, Massachusetts, in the late 19th century.
