I wanted to see the tales in their original format. This is a compliation in an eleven inch sqaure book. The description here says the illustrations are digitally re-mastered original artwork, which I assumed was Beatrix Potter's art work, but the books says it is illustrated by Charles Santore. A beautiful book but not what I was looking for.
