First edition, first impression, in unusually nice condition. Peter and Wendy is an expanded adaptation into novel form of the story first made popular in the 1904 stage play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. It tells the familiar story of the stage version, with Peter as an older child flying off with Wendy and the other Darling children to battle Captain Hook and his pirates, but Barrie added a final chapter to the book in which Peter returns for Wendy years later, when she is grown with a child of her own. The text of the stage play itself was not published until 1928.
