Peter Rabbit by Harrison Cady & Thornton Burgess (1110-) 1st apearance 1912, 1st Sunday August 15, 1920 - Peter Rabbit was originally created in a single illustrated text column called Bedtime stories in similar fashion to Uncle Wiggily.   Created by Thornton Burgess, the column was a daily short fable which usually had an added moral.    Peter Rabbit would consistently get into some mischief that he had to resolve before the end of the day.  The sunday strip was developed by the illustrator of those dailly text columns,   Harrison Cady.   In the Sundays, the formula did not change although the illustration got a little more elaborate.  The style of illustratrion was classic children story style.  The characters tended to be somewhat rotund and thereby comical.  The strip lasted for over 30 years never waivering from the mischief/resolution formula.   The market for Peter Rabbit is moderately good.  Offered as both halfs and fulls, collectors look for nice color fulls.    The market for the rarer daily columns is much stronger and are very hard to keep in stock.
