BEATRIX POTTER FIRST EDITION FIRST ISSUE CONCERTINA STYLE. THE STORY OF A FIERCE BAD RABBIT. Warne & Co, 1906. First edition, First issue. Folding wallet style panorama, green wallet with writing in dark green and onlay of the rabbit to the upper flap. Mottled lavender endpapers. This is a nice example of this fragile production. The book is clean and bright, with a few small creases. Covers are very good, a little rubbed/marked. The story is told on a folding panorama, which alternates text and illustration. There are a total of 14 colour plates. Illustrated by the author. First Edition, First Issue (with "London & New York" on rear cover). Only 10,000 copies of the first printing. "At the beginning of 1906 when working on "The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher", Beatrix Potter was also planning some stories for very young children. Each story contained fourteen pictures and fourteen pages of simple text. The pictures and text were arranged in pairs and were in panoramic form Three stories were written in this form: "The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit", "The Story of Miss Moppet", and "The Sly Old Cat"; but only the first two were published" (Linder, p. 183). Linder, p. 426; Quinby 11. Extremely rare and highly collectable, a must for any Beatrix Potter collector. I shall also be selling a concertina style copy of "The Story of Miss Moppet"
