I have for sale this fantastic Pauline Baynes lot containing all the original illustrations for two of the three stories from Country Tales by Beatrix Potter. Pauline was well known for her J.R.R Tolkien and C.S Lewis illustrations but she also illustrated many other books including this one. Published by F.Warne and Co in 1987 the book contained three stories: Little Mouse; Daisy and Double & Habbitrot. The illustrations for the later 2 stories are for sale here. Daisy and Double 8 colour illustrations - recounts the adventures of two mischievous twin lambs Habbitrot 12 colour illustrations - story of a mysterious old women, spinning in the wood. All of the picture are 90 x 110mm, no damage. None are signed but all include Pauline's narrative in pencil under each one. I have had some mounted/framed in oak frames and using museum glass but left the others as shown. The fine detail is absolutely stunning and the pictures really don't do them justice but if anyone wants any more photos please let me know. Also included is a copy of the book in which all the art has appeared. So overall a lovely collection of 20 original illustrations by one of the best illustrators in recent times. For the Baynes/Tolkien/Lewis or Potter fan these are a real treasure. For the purpose of postage I will remove from the frames and post between thick card to avoid breakage unless anyone wished to collect of course. I will also include the original purchase receipt from a very well know auction house. Any overpaid postage will be refunded once dispatched. Any questions please do ask.Please see my other Tolkien items
