About This Item

London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1911. A first edition, first printing published by Hodder and Stoughton in 1911. A very good (or better) book with some wear and fraying to the edges. Some very light spotting to the page edges. Some off-setting to the endpapers. Hinges NOT cracking and some wear to the corners. Faint inscription to the front pastedown. A pleasing copy.

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.
