COVER TITLE: TWO LITTLE RABBITS. THE SAD STORY OF WHITETAIL. TITLE PAGE: THE SAD STORY OF WHITETAIL. DRAWN & WRITTEN BY G.A.E.DALRYMPLE. Edinburgh: Edmonston & Douglas, 1872. 16mo. Glazed paper covered boards. Rebound and rebacked. Yellow endpapers. Seven full page lithographed black and white illustrations and title page vignette by the author. There are two additional engraved vignettes - one signed with the initials MW. A SCARCE (probably privately printed) Scottish imprint. Not in Osborne. A moral tale with sad consequences for a disobedient rabbit - it pre-dates Beatrix Potter's "Tale of Peter Rabbit" having the same message but Potter's has a happier ending! A very good copy. FIRST (and probably only) EDITION.
