About This Item

Grosset & Dunlap, 1949 Grosset & Dunlap, 1949 217 pp. A Thrushwood Book. No date stated but there is no mention of the Disney "Peter Pan," but as "Peter and Wendy" was one of Barrie's's original titles, I'm guessing that the book appeared before the movies's release in 1953. Text is clean, tight, unmarked, yellowed. Dust jacket is clean and bright with some edgewear. A somewhat uncommon title. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.

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.
