LETTERS TO CHILDREN FROM BEATRIX POTTER., Taylor, Judy, collected and introduced by.  (Beatrix Potter.)
61 Taylor, Judy, collected and introduced by. (Beatrix Potter.) LETTERS TO CHILDREN FROM BEATRIX POTTER.
London Frederick Warne 1992 0723237778 / 9780723237778 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Good+ Beatrix Potter. 
240 pp, small 4to (10 1/8" H). "The chief recipients (of her letters) were the family of her former governess, Annie Moore. Beatrix wrote them long, lively 'picture letters', copiously illustrated with witty drawings and full of funny anecdotes about her pets and her holidays. As she became established as an author she continued to write to young relatives, members of her publisher's family and the enthusiastic fans who loved her books. Sometimes these letters take the form of a supposed correspondence between different animal characters from the Peter Rabbit stories, all written in miniature with their own tiny envelopes. It is a measure of the delight with which Beatrix Potter's letters were received and treasured that so many of them have survived to this day. The picture letters and miniature letters (in this book) are shown in facsimile and (it) is illustrated with photographs and Beatrix Potter's own drawings. Judy Taylor has introduced each section with an account of the children who received the letters, many of whose stories have never been told before. The result is an intriguing and attractive book that reveals much new information about Beatrix Potter and above all demonstrates her unfailing power to beguile children and adults alike." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, a few tiny dents on bottom edge of boards, some areas of faint discoloration at bottom of boards. Dust jacket has some edge wrinkling, light edge wear, one small taped tear at top edge, light dampness stains at inside bottom edge, light rub marks.

WRESTLING WITH A PENCIL:  THE LIFE OF A FREELANCE ARTIST., Thelwell, Norman.
62 Thelwell, Norman. WRESTLING WITH A PENCIL: THE LIFE OF A FREELANCE ARTIST.
London Methuen 1986 0413593207 / 9780413593207 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Norman Thelwell. 
192 pp, 9 7/8" H. Pictorial endpapers, beautifully and profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "For over twenty-five years Norman Thelwell's cartoons, drawings and landscape paintings have delighted millions of people all over the world. His drawings of sporting pursuits, of human beings at play and of many other countryside subjects are the product of a unique comic genius; the term 'Thelwell pony' has passed into the English language. Now Norman Thelwell has written an account of his life from early childhood to the present. For the first time he opens up his experiences as an artist and humorist, in an informal, accessible and entertaining way. He describes his early love of drawing, the development of his skills in the war, his training at art school, his career as a teacher and a newspaper cartoonist and his subsequent life as a freelance artist. He discusses his work for 'Punch', the development of his ideas, his techniques, the making of his books and his other projects. (This) is also a personal story: of his childhood in Birkenhead; his experiences as a soldier in Britain and India during and after the war; his family; his home life in Hampshire; the people he has met; the houses he has restored. This mixture of personal and professional reminiscence is rich in anecdote and makes a lively and often amusing story. It is accompanied by a wide range of colour and black -and -white illustrations. In addition to the cartoons for which he is famous there are selections from his work as a serious landscape painter and samples from a lifetime of sketchbooks." Tiny white mark on rear board, very minor edge wear. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear, light wrinkling at top of spine and flaps, very minor rubbing, 1" line indentation on spine.

63 Tuttle, Lisa. CATWITCH.
Limpsfield Paper Tiger 1983 0905895843 / 9780905895840 First British Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Una Woodruff. 
80 pp, 11 3/8" H. Beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout. "Jules (a tabby kitten) is adopted by Eva Eden, a glamorous witch who was once a film star, and taught to read, write and spell - the magical kind - for Eva needs his help in the search for Alicorn, a fabulous something that will make dreams come true, although nobody knows exactly what it is. Unfortunately, Alexander Wylie, a particularly unpleasant wizard, is also after Alicorn, but while Eva only wants to return to the silver screen, his purpose is much more sinister. How Jules accidentally summons faeries through the television set and journeys to their realm, how he helps to rescue a kidnapped faery Prince, and how our resourceful feline hero finally thwarts Wylie's evil schemes will enthrall and entertain children of all ages." Slight twist to spine, a very tiny piece of glue residue on front board. Dust jacket has minor soft wrinkle at top edge of rear panel, very minor wear to laminate at top/bottom of spine.

THE RHINEGOLD & THE VALKYRIE., Wagner, Richard.  Translated by Margaret Armour.
64 Wagner, Richard. Translated by Margaret Armour. THE RHINEGOLD & THE VALKYRIE.
London William Heinemann 1920 New Impression. Hard Cover Good+ Good- Arthur Rackham. 
160 pp, 10" H. Taupe-coloured cloth with black lettering/decoration on spine and front board, black publisher's emblem on rear board. Pictorial endpapers, b&w vignettes, 34 colour plates, tipped in on heavy stock with borders, tissue covers bearing captions (collated). This book contains the first two parts of 'The Ring of the Niblung': 'The Rhinegold: Prelude' and 'The Valkyrie: First Day of the Trilogy'. 'Siegfried: Second Day of the Trilogy' and 'The Twilight of the Gods: Third Day of theTrilogy' are not included. This English translation of Richard Wagner's epic opera is enhanced by Arthur Rackham's beautiful, detailed illustrations, which bring to life the gods, goddesses, giants, dwarves and other inhabitants of the drama. The plates are all clean and bright, although one has four tiny flecks of skim from the facing tissue at the top (probably as a result of the tipping-in process), one has a very small crease at the bottom left-hand corner and another has a very tiny piece of edge wear. The card stock has darkened, as seems common with this production, affecting the adjacent pages (see photograph). Some pages have light wrinkling (no creases) - mainly at corners. Moderate browning to edges of text block. Wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Two margin tears (not affecting text or illustrations) have been repaired with archival tape. Dust jacket has very small chips at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, browning and some very light scuffs on spine, some light browning on panels, three water stains on spine - the largest and darkest at the bottom, light edge wear/wrinkling, small light stain on rear panel
