The Little White Bird

by Barrie, J.M

Condition: See description


London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1902. Hardback. A very good copy in black cloth lettered in gilt on the spine. Top edge gilt. Neat ownership inscription on front free end-paper. Some end-paper foxing. Pp.viii,312. Tissue-guarded frontispiece entitled "The Child's Map of Kensington Gardens." A book for children including the first appearance of Peter Pan. Photographs available on request.. First Edition.

The Little White Bird is a series of short episodes, narratives and day-to-day accounts of J M Barrie's life in London. The tone oscillates from whimsical to social comedy to darkly aggressive. Part of the book's continuing popularity was due to the couple of softer chapters telling the story of Peter Pan, later to become the hero of Barrie's most famous work.
