J. M. Barrie originally created Peter Pan - a boy who never grows up - in the novel The Little White Bird, published in 1902. The character reappeared in a stage play in 1904. Following the success of the play, portions of the novel were extracted, illustrated by Arthur Rackham, and published in 1906 as PETER PAN IN KENSINGTON GARDENS. This new miniature edition preserves the famous Rackham illustrations:
The book is bound in mustard-colored buckram, and wrapped in a dust jacket featuring Rackham illustrations on the covers, plus small photographs of the author and the illustrator on the end-flaps. The end-papers also feature a Rackham illustration, following the style of the original 1906 edition.
The book consists of 140 pages, and has overall dimensions of 76 x 76 x 12 mm (3 x 3 x 1/2 inches). This, the largest format allowed for a miniature book, allows the wonderful illustrations to be presented as large as possible.
This edition of PETER PAN IN KENSINGTON GARDENS is limited to 15 copies, price $35 each plus $5 shipping and handling. SOLD OUT
