BARRIE, J.M. / RACKHAM, Arthur

SIGNED BY BARRIE

RACKHAM, Arthur Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

Hodder & Stoughton, 1914.

Early Octavo edition with Rackham illustrations. Original dark olive green cloth covers with lovely gilt decoration to the front upper and gilt lettering to the spine. Signed by the author on the title page, "Your sincerely J.M.Barrie". Endpapers depicting a map of Kensington Gardens. Sixteen colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham, under captioned tissue guards. A very good copy, some oxidisation to the gilt on the spine and crease to the upper board.

J.M. Barrie's famous contribution to children's literature was first published as a Christmas gift book with colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham. Both the tale and the illustrations were an immediate hit with the critics and public.
A contemporary review of the book published in "The World" reads, "Mr Barrie has done what no one else has done since the inventor of "Alice", he has invented a new legend, a modern folk story which comprehends all the innermost secrets of the modern child, be he four or forty."
Copies of Peter Pan signed by Barrie are uncommon.
