The Roly-Poly Pudding - Beatrix Potter

1908 - Frederick Warne and Co., London - First Edition, First Printing
A superb and thus scarce example of this first edition of Roly-Poly Pudding in which Beatrix Potter expresses her love of the quaint old farmhouse at Hill Top, Sawry, which she has taken as the setting for the story, and despite the infestations of rats she had to deal with whilst renovating this farmhouse, she dedicates the book to her former pet – ‘In remembrance of “SAMMY” The intelligent pink-eyed Representative of a Persecuted (but Irrepressible) Race!

The illustrations are based upon the actual rooms at Hill Top, which can still be visited today [2015] as Potter arranged for the property to be run by the National Trust and rooms to be kept just as they were during her lifetime.
