Rare in dustwrapper

BARRIE, J. M

Peter and Wendy, Hodder & Stoughton 1911

8vo. 267pp, title/frontis + 11pp full page plates by F. D. Bedford. Green boards with gilt decoration and lettering to spine & front board. Pictorial First Issue dustwrapper. A near fine copy with bright & fresh boards & very light wear indeed. Some light foxing to edges & sporadically within text. Neat ink owner inscription dated 1911. The very good dustwrapper has a few nicks at tip of spine & tiny chips to foot. Much brighter spine than usual. Peter Pan introduced in 'The Little White Bird', expanded into a childrens story in 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens' & then enlarged and novelised in the version that we know and love today in 'Peter and Wendy'.
