Description: Beatrix Potter: The Picture Letters brings together for the first time twenty-two letters, including the famous Peter Rabbit letter, from important American private holdings as well as from three major institutional collections: the Morgan, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the Cotsen Children's Library at Princeton University. The letters will be supplemented and enhanced with more than eighty related items, including Potter's privately-printed "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" and other printed books, original artwork, manuscripts, and early children's toys and games inspired by Potter's stories.
