Notes

Signed limited edition, number 381 of 500 numbered copies signed by the artist. Barrie asked Rackham to illustrate not the play Peter Pan (which remained unpublished until 1928) but make a new book from those chapters from The Little White Bird (1902) that had first introduced the character.
