Peter and Wendy

BARRIE, J.M.

BARRIE, J.M. Peter and Wendy

Hodder and Stoughton, 1911.

First edition. 8vo. Publisher's green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration. Pictorial title page and frontispiece, plus eleven black and white illustrations by F. D. Bedford. A very good copy indeed, slight spotting to page edges and a small spot of foxing to lower edge of plate mount at p.64.

The character of Peter Pan is first encountered in 1902 as part of The Little White Bird, a novel for adults. The popularity of this small section prompted Barrie to develop it as a children's story (Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, published in 1906) and adapt it as a play (Peter Pan, which opened in 1904). The continued success of the play led Barrie to expand the story further as a novel (Peter and Wendy, 1911), which is the version best known today. This story tells the popular version of the tale featuring Wendy Darling and Nana the dog. The final chapter of this novel entitled, "When Wendy Grew Up", sees Peter visiting a grown up Wendy, a part of the story which had not appeared in the play or earlier versions of the story.
