Beatrix Potter was a very private person, yet, luckily for us, she was a prolific letter writer. Her life covers a period of immense social change. The restricted existence of a dutiful Victorian daughter, the background against which she first wrote the story of Peter Rabbit, was very different from that of war-time England where she continued to pioneer countryside conservation until her death.

  • Enjoyed learning about an interesting life. Complicated woman and the product of her times and culture.

  • Excellent condition

  • Very happy with purchase.

  • If you love the little books and want to know something about the person who wrote them, this is an excellent choice. For someone with such a soft spot for tiny, helpless animals (bunnies, mice, squirrels and such) she could be quite a fierce rabbit in dealing with other human beings. It would seem that she had been so repressed and constrained during her long early life (47 years) as the dutiful unmarried daughter to parents with perhaps an inflated idea of their social status and its requirements, that once she had a glimpse of blue sky over her head (at Hill Top Farm) there was no holding her back. She is unfailingly polite in her correspondence, but there is no mistaking the strength of her opinions, and she does not mean for them to be mistaken.

    A great many of the 400 letters printed here relate to the publication of her books, addressed to the three Warne brothers, Norman, Harold, and Fruing. Norman, to whom she was briefly engaged before his untimely death, was obviously a sympathetic soul, sensitive to the needs of a creative spirit. Harold, on the other hand, she sometimes found she had to scold, even while her books were bringing in a substantial percentage of the firm's income. After her books began selling briskly, she felt he sometimes misunderstood or overreacted to her concerns, and, even worse, didn't keep her informed about sales or even send out her royalty checks on time. By then she was buying more and more land and improving her properties and needed to know what she could spend and when. As her 30-year literary/artistic career gradually wound down and her conservationist/farmer career took over her life, her priorities changed, but she remained the self-motivated and uncompromising person she had always been.

    Perhaps my favorite tidbit selected from her vast display of wisdom is this, from a letter to Harold Warne, July 14, 1912: "If it were not impertinent to lecture ones publisher -- you are a great deal too much afraid of the public for whom I have never cared one tuppenny-button. I am sure that it is that attitude of mind which has enabled me to keep up the series. Most people, after one success, are so cringingly afraid of doing less well that they rub all the edge off their subsequent work."

    Later, after Harold has left the firm, having been found guilty of embezzlement (she was correct in thinking something was amiss!), she remains loyal, for Norman's sake, despite financial losses to herself, but still has difficulty making Fruing, now the head, finally understand that her eyes are no longer strong enough for painting. She has done all she can for her paper animals; it is the live ones on her farm (1,100 sheep!) that need her most now.

    To an unnamed correspondent (March 17, 1940) seeking to delve into the arcana of her bibliographic history: "To be candid, this minute study of first editions seems very silly when applied to recent picture books. Its a pity you have not some more useful pursuit or hobby to employ your time. I am sorry I cannot give any further attention to the matter."

    I recently read Tolkien's letters, and one can't help noticing how much they had in common, as private people who resisted becoming celebrities, as aspiring writers who doubted they could ever find an audience, or even a publisher, and as successful authors expending almost as much effort protecting and defending their published works as had been required for their creation.

  • I have never read a book like this before. The letters cover most of her life from about age 5 on to her death in 1943. I felt as though I had happened on a box of correspondence that I found difficult to put down. Sort of like reading some one else's diary. Much was mundane and business like but there were occasional glimpses into her spirit. She loved the lakes area and through her determination, much of it is preserved today for the pure pleasure of the British population. I knew her for Peter Rabbit. I admire her for her later determination to preserve the land for the people.
