Author Name    Barrie, J.M.

Title   PETER PAN IN KENSINGTON GARDENS.

Binding   Hard Cover

Book Condition   Good

Publisher   London Hodder and Stoughton

Illustrator   Arthur Rackham.

Seller ID   29690

126 pp, 8 1/4" H. Red cloth with gilt lettering on spine, gilt illustration (Peter sitting on mushrooms playing pipes) and blindstamped decoration on front board. No date, but Xmas inscription dated 1926 on half title page. 16 tipped in colour plates (including frontispiece) with captioned tissue guards. All the plates are in clean, bright condition - wonderful examples of Arthur Rackham's fantastically imaginative portrayals of fairies, children, birds, gnarly trees, etc. This version of the tale is quite different from the play and later Disney adaptations - no Tinkerbelle, Captain Hook or Wendy, it focuses on Peter Pan's life in London's famous Kensington Gardens and his interactions with the fairies and birds that live there. A slight separation between a few page gatherings but pages are holding firmly, faint toning to margins of pages and tissues, very slight crl to top corner of pages, a few scattered tiny faint foxing marks throughtout pages, very small tear with crease at top of page 17 - archivally taped, colored plate opposite page 32 has been re-tipped in at top edge and is slightly mis-aligned to page - was originally tipped in at edge nearest hinge leaving faint location mark, areas of very light browning on endpapers, slight fading to spine color - a little more at bottom 1/2" of spine, light wear/wrinkling at top bottom of spine with a few tiny tears, three very small light liquid marks on rear board, book is lightly cocked.
