This sale is for an original 1916FIRST EDITION,THUS of "PETER PAN" as edited and arranged by Frederick Orville Perkins from the famous play by J. M. Barrie.
YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
It is beautifully illustrated with 17 FULL-PAGEPLATES, includinga beatiful COLOR FRONTISPIECE, by ALICE B. WOODWARD.
PETER PAN, TINKER BELL, WENDY and CAPTAIN HOOKare all in this book, which became the basis for Walt Disney's Famous animated film and many other movies such as "Hook."
Before there was DISNEY'S Peter Pan, there was the original play and novel, "PETER AND WENDY," about a mischievous boy who flies and supernaturally refuses to grow up.
Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang the "Lost Boys," featuring fantastical elements including interaction with magical fairies, pirates and mermaids, and from time to time meeting ordinary children from the world outside sharing his adventures with the young girl, Wendy Darling and her brothers.
Barrie never described Peter's appearance in detail, leaving much of it to the imagination of the reader and the interpretation of anyone adapting the character. Barrie mentions that Peter Pan still had all of his first teeth. He describes him as a beautiful boy with a beautiful smile, "clad in skeleton leaves and the juices that flow from trees."
Peter is mainly an exaggerated stereotype of a boastful and careless boy.He has a nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude and is fearlessly cocky when it comes to putting himself in danger.
Peter has an effect on the whole of Neverland and its inhabitants when he is there.
Barrie states that the island wakes up when he returns from his trip to London. The chapter "The Mermaid Lagoon" touches on the fact that there is almost nothing that Peter cannot do.
He is a skilled swordsman, rivaling even Captain Hook whose hand he cut off in a duel. He has remarkably keen vision and hearing. He is skilled in mimicry, copying the voice of Hook and the tick tock of the Crocodile.
One of the best entrances to the inner world of childhood fantasy has always been through a study of stories that have proved, over the years, to be long-term favorites with the young.
In cases where children seem genuinely gripped by a story, demanding to hear it over and over again or re-enacting it afterward in their imagination or with their friends. One can only assume that, to be able to work up this level of interest in the first place, such a story must be expressing something of major importance to the child. This story has appealed to both young and "young at heart" for almost 100 years.
The17 FULL-PAGE ILLUSTRATIONS!!!are tipped in plates done byAlice B. Woodward.They are just darling!
Each and every illustration bears testimony to the earnest desire of the publishers to spare no effort or expense necessary to the production of a book which should prove in every way satisfactory to those interested in the subject treated.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Barrie created Peter Pan in stories he told to the sons of his friend Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, with whom he had forged a special relationship. Mrs. Llewelyn Davies' death from cancer came within a few years after the death of her husband. Barrie was named as co-guardian of the boys and unofficially adopted them. The character's name of PETER PAN comes from two sources: Peter Llewelyn Davies, one of the boys, and Pan, the mischievous Greek god of the woodlands. It has also been suggested that the inspiration for the character was Barrie's elder brother David, whose death in a skating accident at the age of thirteen deeply affected their mother. The death was "a catastrophe beyond belief, and one from which she never fully recovered." If Margaret Ogilvy (Barrie's motherand the heroine of his 1896 novel of that title) drew a measure of comfort from the notion that David, in dying a boy, would remain a boy for ever, Barrie drew inspiration. We think of Barrie as one of the chief explorers of childhood. Yet the childhood that gripped him most tightly was not his own but that of other people; it is almost as if his own did not exist. The souls around him were like books, ripe for perusal, and he preferred their opening chapters. Barrie is also credited with the creation of the name "Wendy," which was non-existent in either Britain or America before he gave it to the heroine of Peter Pan. He was made a baronet in 1913.
