About This Item

The First UK printing published by Hodder and Stoughton, London in 1939. The BOOK is in exceptional near Fine condition. Original cream cloth lettered in dark blue. Free from inscriptions. Light pushing at the spine tips. Very slight age related markings. The WRAPPER is neatly price-clipped and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light age related markings and a little fading to the spine lettering. Mild edge-wear with a few small closed tears and a little creasing in places. The wrapper artwork looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. Illustrated with 12 mounted colour plates, 17 black & white illustrations and illustrated end-papers by Edmund Blampied. All 12 printed tissue guards for the colour plates are present. This edition, originally titled just 'Peter & Wendy', contains the original text. In May 1938, Blampied was elected to the 'Royal Society of British Artists'. Later that year he was asked to prepare some new illustrations for a lavish edition of 'Peter Pan', the rights to which had been bequeathed by J. M. Barrie to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. This request resulted in the publication of one of the finest illustrated editions of this book. Scarce in such exceptional condition. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

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.
