Beatrix Potter's Letters by Beatrix Potter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Beatrix Potter achieved considerable prominence as a children's book author in her own lifetime, but she always shunned publicity. However, she was a prolific letter-writer. Judy Taylor, author of the biography "Beatrix Potter: Artist, Storyteller and Countrywoman", here presents a collection that reveals the observant, energetic, affectionate and humorous personality that Potter kept hidden from the public. There are picture-letters written to entertain child friends, juxtaposed with serious accounts of botanical research. The publishing process of her children's books is discussed in the correspondence with her editor, Norman Warne, to whom she eventually became engaged. Her life, from 1866 to 1943, covers a period of immense social change. Judy Taylor's selection of letters, linked by annotations, gives an overview of the development of the early 20th century as well as the life story of a remarkable woman.
