HET VERHAAL VAN DE KLEINE LANGOORTJES (The Tale Of The Flopsy Bunnies). Verteld En Geillustreerd Door BEATRIX POTTER. London: Frederick Warne & Co., Ltd. "The Tale Of The Flopsy Bunnies" was first translated into Dutch in 1946. This copy has a 1946 first edition DUST JACKET with code "251.246" on the inside front flap of the dust jacket (see enlargement 5). The copyright page code is "127.1147" (see enlargement 6). In very fine condition with slightly worn original pictorial dust jacket. See Linder, page 435. Prior to 1946 only two of Beatrix Potter's stories were translated from English into Dutch (Peter Rabbit & Jemima Puddle-Duck). In 1946 Frederick Warne published five new Potter titles with Dutch translations. In addition to the "Flopsy Bunnies" they were: Benjamin Knabbel (Benjamin Bunny); Twee Stoute Muisjes (Two Bad Mice); Jeremias de Hengelaar (Jeremy Fisher); and, Tom Het Poesje (Tom Kitten). These were now available along with a previously translated edition of "Peter Rabbit". A scarce early Dutch edition and rare with a first edition dust jacket.
