Containing eight full colour plates and many other wood-cuts, this is the third peek-a-boo book from ChloŽ Preston. Written by her aunt, identified only as Z.H. on the title page, the illustrations for this book were undertaken in collaboration with George Howard-Vyse. Vyse was responsible for all of the rabbit illustrations and Preston for the rest. The contrast in artistic styles makes this an interesting edition. 20x23 cm. Illustrated end papers. Previous owner's names [x2] on ffep. Relatively hard to find and priced to reflect the condition. Boards are marked and edges worn with a damaged and partial backstrip. Internally, all eight plates are present although there is damage to the white border of three plates [stain, chip, closed tear]. There is a small edge stain to several pages and some brown spotting. 8vo - over 7ĺ" - 9ĺ" tall.
