1910 Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens
What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
This work is adorned with illustrations by Arthur Rackham. During the ‘Golden Age’ of British book illustration Rackham was one of its leading artists. Stylistically, Rackham’s illustrations reflected pen and India ink drawings. He used expressive line paired with a subtle use of watercolour to create his beautiful images. Below are several examples of Rackham’s works from our ever-expanding library. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens is one of the four major literary works featuring Barrie's widely known character Peter Pan. Much of this work is taken from Barrie's earlier novel, The Little White Bird. The Little White Bird was a novel for adult readers, whereas this work was published as a children's book. An uncommon edition, being the second issue of the trade edition. With a boy gilt stamped to the front board, playing pipes, and the illustrations listed. Printed map of Kensington Gardens to the endpapers. In this work Peter is a seven day old infant who escapes his window and flies to Kensington Gardens. This work follows Peter's adventures in the gardens.
