The book was shipped quickly and was in good condition. I had never received a reply to an initial email, however, inquiring about the book.

100 or so years old
It's hard to believe that this wonderful tale is over a hundred years old. And still as enjoyable as ever...
"Once upon a time there were four little rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-Tail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree..."
And so it begins, primarily about Peter and the harrowing adventure he has with a farmer. Peter of course, is unharmed, but hopefully a wiser rabbit is he...
Charming and delightful, with simply lovely illustartions.
