London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1920. Please see my description. Peter Pan In Kensington Gardens By J M Barrie Hodder & Stoughton - London, c1920 First Edition thus **Amazing Condition + Rare Original DJ Included** **Very Scarce & Collectable** I am delighted to offer for auction one of a number of very scarce First Editions to be listed over the coming weeks.

Sharp corners and spine tips etc, it really is that good. Internally it is hard to believe the book has been read more than a couple of times and there are NO inscriptions or graffiti at all. Immaculate pages, illustrations with tissue guards etc etc again just stunning. The original mapped endpapers show a hint of offsetting where the jacket folds … [Click Below for Full Description]
