The Story of Miss Moppet - Beatrix Potter

1906 - Frederick Warne & Co., London & New York - First Edition First Printing
‘At the beginning of 1906 Beatrix Potter was also planning some stories for very young children. Each story contained fourteen pictures and fourteen pages of simple text, mounted on a long strip of linen, and folded concertina-wise into a wallet with a tuck-in flap.’ Only two titles were published in this format.

This is a rare example of one of those stories, stunning when unfolded to it's full length of eight feet (2.492 metres), and housed in a custom clamshell case of green morocco over cloth, spine titled in gilt, interior lined with black felt.

As a result of the delicateness of this format, they only produced two small print runs, so complete and unrestored copies are scarce.

The Cricket in Times Square - George Selden, Garth Williams (illustrator)

1960 - Ariel Books, New York - First Edition
‘Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought he'd seen it all. But he's never met a cricket before, which really isn't surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in the very heart of New York City―the Times Square subway station. Chester Cricket never intended to leave his Connecticut meadow. He'd be there still if he hadn't followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someone's picnic basket.’

First edition of this beautifully illustrated children’s book, in the scarce first printing dust jacket, recipient of both the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1963 and prestigious Newbery Honour in 1961.
