About This Item

Hodder & Stoughton, 1911. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. 8vo. 267pp, title/frontis + 11pp full page plates by F. D. Bedford. Green boards with gilt decoration and lettering to spine & front board. Pictorial First Issue dustwrapper with 2.5" wide dustwrapper flaps (later issues have a similar wrapper but with 1-1.5" front and rear flaps). Housed in a bespoke mid green quarter Morocco clamshell box with gilt titles and raised bands. A near fine copy with bright & fresh boards & very light wear indeed. Usual foxing to edges & sporadically within text. Neat ink owner inscription dated 1911 to endpaper. The very good dustwrapper has nicking at the tip of spine & couple of very small chips to foot. Much brighter spine than usual. A Rare copy. Peter Pan introduced in 'The Little White Bird', expanded into a childrens story in 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens' & then enlarged and novelised in the version that we know today in 'Peter and Wendy'.

Synopsis

Peter and Wendy (1911) is the title of James M. Barrie's novelization of his most famous play, Peter Pan: or, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904). Inspired by Barrie's friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family, both the play and the novel tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous young boy who can fly, and his adventures on the island of Neverland with Wendy Darling and her brothers. The novel follows the play closely, though its final chapter is an addition to the original work. Peter and Wendy was first published in 1911 by Hodder & Stoughton in the United Kingdom and Charles Scribner's Sons in the United States. In 1929, Barrie gave the copyright to the works featuring Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), Britain's leading children's hospital.
