Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by J.M. Barrie is for sale. This is the early edition of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens circa 1910 with 24 colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham.
The original green binding has to the front board an embossed gilt decoration of Peter Pan sitting on a toad stool playing the pan pipes. The spine has lettering in gilt. The back board is plain as required.
There are 125 numbered pages with a double page map of Kensington Gardens to the endpapers to the front endpapers and rear endpapers at the back of the book.
The binding is in Very Good condition with only very minor wear to the top and bottom of the spine. Otherwise the front board, spine and back board are very clean, attractive and fresh in feel.
The 24 Arthur Rackham colour illustrations are all present, with their captioned tissue guards and are in Fine condition. The pages have foxing and the plate and tissue guard opposite page 72 is loosely inserted with the tissue guard still attached to the colour plate.
