Product description

Peter and Wendy
J M Barrie
Monochrome illustrations by F D Bedford
Hodder and Stoughton, nd; circa 1911. Believed to be First edition.
Hardback; 145 X 205 mm; dark green boards with gold titles on spine and gold pictorial spine and front cover; viii & 267 pages. No dust jacket.
The book is in fair condition, to be expected due to age and usage. It is slightly cocked.
The covers are worn and scuffed with bumping to the spine (and chipping) and corners. There is a circa 5 cm tear from the top of the spine where it joins the front cover, and a circa 1 cm tear at the bottom of the spine where it joins the back cover. The gold titles and pictorials are rubbed and faded though still clearly legible. The edges of the leaves are tanned and foxed.
The binding is generally sound but there is cracking between the front paste-down and front free endpapers. The illustrations at pages 64/65, 112/113, and 128/129 are loose though still partially attached. The binding is slightly cracked at pages 112/113 and 128/129.
On the front free endpaper is the remains of a pasted in bookplate that has been only partially removed. The endpapers are tanned and foxed, and there is foxing throughout the book. Two blank leaves may have been removed from the end of the book, and there is no title page. There are small pencil marks on pages viii and 192. A small piece is missing from the corner of page 17/18 but the text is complete. There is minor chipping to the top edges of the leaves at various places, and a small tear at page 257/258.
The story of Peter and Wendy, Peter Pan, by J M Barrie (1860 – 1937) is well known. Francis Donkin Bedford (1864 – 1954) was a British artist and illustrator. He strongly influenced the visual identity of Peter Pan and the other characters of J M Barrie's story. In the late 1890s and early 1900s, Bedford illustrated his first books including A Book of Nursery Rhymes (1897), The Books of Shops (1899), Four and Twenty Toilers (1900), and The Visit to London (1902). He exhibited paintings at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and at other galleries. In 1901, he was elected to the Art Workers' Guild, an organization which counted Walter Crane and Arthur Rackham among its past masters.
This book will appeal not only to the collector but also to those interested in the work of F D Bedford.
