First edition, US issue, the American and British editions having been issued simultaneously. The first appearance as a novel of J.M. Barrie's beloved story of Peter Pan, which first appeared as a play on the London stage in 1904. Wendy and her brothers John and Michael are transported to Neverland by Peter Pan where they have their famous adventures with Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, and the dastardly pirate Captain Hook.
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.
