Hello again everyone!!
In continuation of my Peter Cottontail posts, here's my 1941 copy of The Adventures of Peter Cottontail by Thornton W. Burgess. This edition was published by Grosset & Dunlop of New York and, as you can see, it's a nice crisp copy with no writing or torn pages. This was first published in 1914 by Little, Brown and Company of Boston. I have a 1932 copy of this as well. Just can't remember which trunk I have it stored in. When I find it, I'll post it.
That's Unc' Billy Possum pictured in the 4th photo.
Thornton W. Burgess wrote more than 15,000 stories in his lifetime. He and Howard R. Garis (famous for the Uncle Wiggily books) are two of my absolute favorite children;s book authors. I have many books from each of these authors in my collection.
Hope you enjoy see my Peter Cottontail book and thanks for stopping in!!
