    Details

    Around this beautiful, genuine cherry wood box, is a cream card band embossed in gold to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter. Within this Luxurious set, cushioned by the red velvet lining, are reprinted facsimile editions of the Times newspaper from Beatrix Potter’s birthday, 28th July 1866, plus a facsimile of the page from the 30th July 1866 showing the announcement of her birth. The Royal Mint, earlier this year produced the first and only coin to celebrate Peter Rabbit. Only a small number of these 50p coins have ever been minted and their sale was strictly regulated. One of these beautiful coins has been included within this gift set, presented in a modern Perspex block, ideal for displaying the colour design, which reflects the watercolour style Potter's original illustrations. Alongside these pieces of history is your own personalised version of her original letter to Noel Moore, the 5-year-old son of Beatrix’s former governess. This letter will be presented it its own personalised envelope as if it has been addressed to you by Beatrix Potter herself. This letter is the first known mention of her most famous character, Peter Rabbit, and is the basis of her first published story. Also included within this set is a limited edition 150th anniversary version of Beatrix Potter’s Private Printed Edition Book, of which only 250 have been published. The certificate of authenticity included within this set will confirm which of the 250 limited edition books you have received, making this a rare and remarkable gift.
