POTTER, BEATRIX. The Tale of Peter Rabbit. London: Frederick Warne and Co., n.d. . Title vignette and 27 color illustrations, including frontispiece. 12mo, original dark brown paper boards, upper cover with inset color pictorial label, color pictorial endpapers (Linder 2 & 3 [used twice]); contents cracked between pages 30/31, otherwise very good. Seventh printing, issued in September, 1904. Linder, p. 422; V & A 1634.
There is a discrepancy in Linder's dating of the second and third endpaper designs. On p. 413 and Fig. 3 he gives the September, 1904 date as the introduction of design 3, but on p. 422 he gives April, 1904 as the date for the 7th printing using endpaper designs 2 & 3.
