PETER PAN AND WENDY

(London: Hodder & Stoughton, ca. 1979).

A PRISTINE AND BEAUTIFULLY PRESERVED COPY. A charming edition of the Peter Pan story. The illustrations are in a style somewhat typical of the English illustration for children's books during the first decades of the 1900's. In addition to the color plates, many illustrations are scattered throughout the text, sometimes whimsically so.
This is an exceptional copy in that it retains its silk marker, something that rarely happens with a children's book as decorative as this. Item #32162

First Edition in this format, limited and in the publisher's best binding. Twelve tipped-in color plates and 19 illustrations throughout the text by Mabel Lucie Attwell. 4to, publisher’s full black morocco blocked and lettered in gilt, green and brown on the covers and the spine, moire silk endleaves, all edges gilt. 185 pp. A pristine copy, as mint, in remarkably fine condition.
