The book: Attractive and Rare in such a wonderful binding! First Illustrated Edition by Gwynedd Hudson of Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up or Peter and Wendy -- J. M. Barrie's most famous work, in the form of a 1904 play and a 1911 novel. Both versions tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous little boy who can fly, and his adventures on the island of Neverland with Wendy Darling and her brothers, the fairy Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, the Indian princess Tiger Lily, and the pirate Captain Hook. The play and novel were inspired by Barrie's friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family. Barrie continued to revise the play for years after its debut; the novel reflects one version of the story.
The author: Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, OM (9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan.
The illustrator: Gwynedd Hudson (1909-1935) studied art at the Brighton School of Art. She was a figure painter, illustrator, and poster artist. She exhibited at the Royal Academy around 1912. She is best known for her editions of Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy and Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
