Original green cloth. Front cover lettered in gilt within a gilt single rule border. Spine lettered in gilt, in the original cream-coloured dust jacket printed in dark green.Background; this is the first edition of a story written in 1907 for the Warne children, and rediscovered by Fruing Warne in 1918. He had expressed a preference for this title over Beatrix Potter's own preference Tale of Jenny Crow. Beatrix jibbed at the rather 'namby pamby' pigeons, since they left little scope for pictorial variety- 'it is too much pigeon over and over'- and she had never been good at birds. Potter could not be convinced to provide illustrations for this work and Warne at the time were not keen on using another illustrator that she recommended, and as a result this book was not published until this un-illustrated posthumous 1955 edition.Bibliography; Linder, A history of the writings of Beatrix Potter; pp1236-8 and 1715 and Taylor, Whalley, Hobbs, Battrick, The artist and her world, p168Provenance; sent in for sale by a member of the Warne family.
