Buchbeschreibung Frederick Warne (Publishers) Limited, London, 1979 reprint of 1978 first edition, 1979. Cloth, 8vo, 26 cm, 216 pp, ills (some in colour). From the blurb: "In this enchanting new book, illustrated in colour and black and white with many drawings which have never been reproduced before, and a number of recently discovered photographs by Beatrix's father, Margaret Lane, author of the best-selling biography, The Tale of Beatrix Potter, considerably extends the biographical background of Beatrix Potter's 'magic years', from early childhood to her marriage, during which the genius of the author-artist developed and flowered. There are fascinating glimpses of the secluded life that the young Beatrix lived in a Victorian family in Kensington, with a father whose only real interest was photography, and a mother whose life revolved around her daily drive in a carriage to pay calls. The development of Beatrix's artistic gifts, her intense study of botany and zoology, and the invention of a secret cipher to record her private thoughts and daily happenings in a vast journal - these are some of the lonely exercises which finally led to the writing and illustration of tales for children which are now internationally acclaimed. Margaret Lane traces the genesis of the stories, which developed from illustrated letters written by Beatrix Potter to her ex- governess's children; and she reveals, in illuminating detail, the relationship of the stories to scenes and episodes in Beatrix's life. In an epilogue she records the transformation of the lonely, diffident young woman who created a magic world in her imagination into the strong-willed, highly practical farmer she became in middle age after her marriage."

Buchbeschreibung Fontana, London, first paperback edition, 1980, 1980. Laminated illustrated wrappers , 8vo, 26 cm, 216 pp, ills (some in colour). A biography of Beatrix Potter with much material about her works. 'More than thirty years ago Margaret Lane wrote The Tale of Beatrix Potter [in Fontana], which ranks high among the biographies of our century. Now the great archive of Beatrix Potter's drawings, letters and diaries (more than 200,000 words in code) has drawn her back to her favourite theme, which is also one of mine. This is a biography with a difference . . the emphasis this time is on the evolution of Beatrix Potter's art and its translation into some of the greatest books for children.' A.J. P.
