"Discoveries and Delights in the Details of a Life"
It is a special pleasure to return to the Cotsen Children's Library today and this
gathering of the Beatrix Potter Society. Nearly 3 years to the day I was invited
to this same podium to celebrate the publication of the Cotsen catalogue. I could
scarcely have imagined how important it would be to my own research, and how much
I would rely upon it. So to all those who made that reference work possible, Anne
Hobbs, Ivy Trent, Judy Taylor Hough, and the Cotsen staff, again my deep appreciation.
