A rare short play by J M Barrie written over the course of one night in 1912 whilst he was suffering from bronchitis. One of the themes is the censership of plays which was a hot topic in the early twentieth century. Roger Lancelyn Green writes in his preface, "[the play] is of considerable interest both as far as Barrie's career is concerned and in the history of the anti-censorship crusade. It is now printed for the first time, in an edition limited to twenty-five numbered and signed copies". Condition: The book is in very good condition, with clean pages and secure binding. The slipcase is a little sun-faded to the edges and with a little surface wear but is in good order.. Signed. First, Limited Edition. Half-Leather in Slipcase. Very Good.
