Description:
NY: Simon & Schuster, 1940. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. 12mo, (4 1/8" wide x 5 3/8), pictorial boards, Very good in publisher's box (worn). A now classic book, illustrated in color. Every other page offers a different activity for the youngest child to enjoy and TOUCH (7 in all). It was partly an experiment in using interactive elements in a book, which was unusual at the time. This is the very rare first issue of this iconic title, with a ball that was designed to squeak when the child pressed it. Because it malfunctioned most of the time, it was replaced with a box of real buttons. The mirror in the first issue was also later replaced with scented flowers. This is one of the rarest of all modern picture books, especially in the first issue with the original ball and mirror pages and in the original box. (Actual mirror not present.) See Bader p.238- 9. Housed in a custom-made slipcase. $20,000.

Description:
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1940. Fine. First edition, first issue, of one of the rarest and best-selling children's books of all time, a fine copy. An interactive story encourages children to "pat the bunny," "feel Daddy's scratchy face," "play peek-a-boo," and more, with seven activities in all. Later issues replace the frequently faulty ball with a button box, and the mirror with scratch-and-sniff flowers. An exceptionally scarce book, especially in such excellent condition and in the original box. 5.25'' x 4''. Original pink pictorial paper boards decorated with blue flower framing pattern, spine and front board lettered in black, large white bunny on front board. In original pink pictorial paper box of similar design. Illustrated with interactive materials, such as white bunny "fur," face-covering cloth, and a squeaky ball (inoperative as typically found). [16] pages, plus printed endpapers. Expert repair to joints of box, some tanning and edgewear to box only. Book pristine, with no toning to… Read More

Description:
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1940. First edition, first issue. Small quarto, original pictorial stiff paper boards, original box. First issue, with the squeaking ball; because the ball's squeaker frequently failed, it was later replaced by perfumed flowers for the reader to smell. In excellent condition with the queaking ball, which no longer squeaks. Rubbing to publisher's box, lacking one (of four) flaps. Dorothy Kunhardt created Pat the Bunny for her 3-year-old daughter, Edith. It was partly an experiment in using interactive elements in a book, which was unusual at the time"Pat the Bunny came out, took off and goes on, a novelty that children never tire of... Here is a fat box-shaped book for babies and very small youngsters, pink as tooth-paste, with a trick at every turn. Paul and Judy can pat the bunny: now 'you' pat the bunny, and here he is, pure cotton wool. 'You' can play peekaboo, look in a mirror, feel Daddy's scratchy face, read Judy's book, and actually put your finger through Mummy's… Read More
