Did you know that Beatrix Potter privately printed the first edition of The Tale Of Peter Rabbit? When Beatrix first wrote The Tale Of Peter Rabbit, she sent the manuscript to six publishers, and received six rejections.  In 1941, a whole print-run of The Tale Of Peter Rabbit was lost in the bombing of London.
