First edition, first printing. Original pictorial boards, in dustwrapper. Illustrated by the author in colour throughout. A very good copy, the fragile binding square and firm, with some cracking and chipping at the spine tips and light wear to the board edges and corners. The contents are entirely complete and clean throughout, without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the good original dustwrapper which has moderate chipping and tears to the edges with some associated creasing.
Though best known for her illustrations for Enid Blyton's books, Eileen Soper also wrote and illustrated her own; 'Happy Rabbit' is her first. The project was completed in 1945 but due to wartime paper shortages publication was delayed until 1947. A wonderful and finely illustrated tale of a pair of betrothed rabbits. Scarce.
