Notes

First edition, first impression, of the play text. The play opened on 27 December 1904 to huge success, breaking all previous theatrical records. In response to this success Barrie sanctioned Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens in collaboration with Arthur Rackham, however the text of which was not based on the play but rather extracted, with minor revisions, from Barrie's book-within-a-book London story-collection for adults, The Little White Bird (1902). The play itself remained unpublished until this edition was issued as part of The Uniform Edition of the Plays of J. M. Barrie in 1928. This edition features a 29-page dedication "To the Five", in which Barrie relates how he created Peter Pan.
