Description

Leslie Linder records that 2000 copies from the first 8000 were issued in "green cloth, light green cloth or olive-green cloth". A gilt decorated cloth cover was introduced in October 1904. The yellow cloth variant is therefore unrecorded by Linder (and also not present in the V&A Collection). It would appear to be the rarest of the different deluxe issues of Peter Rabbit.
