5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful and collectable,
This is a real escape into Beatrix's world, written in her style of conversation and beautiful facsimile style reproductions of ephemera and letters bringing her creations to life. Best of all is the facsimile of the private first edition of Peter Rabbit at the back, a rare publication to have I think. Adults love it as well as children.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP KIDDIES AUTHOR REVEALS HER PERSONAL SIDE,
This review is from: Beatrix Potter's Journal (Hardcover)
The name Beatrix Potter is as synonymous today as it was one hundred years ago but what of the Beatrix Potter the woman, what of her life in her early womanhood, it is all here in this brilliant journal of the best part of her life from 1881 to 1896, her grandmamma's vivid recollections of her childhood, her dislike of Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone her vivid descriptions of the landscapes in Scotland and the lake District, all written in a code of which only she knew about, it is a truly wonderfully unique book, no other journal goes full-on in describing the political and social scene in this era as this one and I salute the late Leslie linder and Glen Cavaliero for making this document available to the general public, if there were an option to rate higher than five stars I would rate it 10 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatrix Potter A Journal,
As described it was a used book. It has been a delight to spend time reading it and helped me to come up with new ideas for making a book about my family. Thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars fab,
Ordered this book for my niece having already got one for myself that I'd found in a book shop - loved is soooooooo much I couldn't resist. I was worried about the condition as it said they were used - but when it arrived it was actually in much better condition that the one I had purchased in the shop at 50% more!! I love this book - the illustrations are amazing and the little extras like post cards and the secret pocket at the back with the peter rabit book in it - it's an amazing book - actually I think its my very very best Christmas present purchase so far this year.

Absolutely brilliant book. The journal took ten years to translate from her shorthand.lovely to look at and own.with original photos of the part portrayed in the film with Rene Zelewegger.
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 'collectors' item,
I bought this as a gift for my mother, life long Beatrix Potter fan with love of Peter Rabbit, the book itself is interesting and appealing to look at. The additional Peter Rabbit copy was what sealed the deal.
great as a gift to make someone feel special although the pop up features can make it feel more like a children's book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wow,
What a beautiful book. I bought this book to put away for my Great Niece for when she is older, it is really for children who are a little older and who would take care of such a stunning book.
