Peter Pan: With the Original 1911 Illustrations (Hardcover)
"Peter Pan" is a classic tale enjoyed by children for more than 100 years, although these days, it is better known through various movie adaptions that have been made from it. And yet, as they say, the 'book is better than the movie.' Why? Because movie makers are notorious for making changes to the books they are based on, and these changes tend to take away from the magic the author poured into the original. It is unfortunately the case that with "Peter Pan," even the book has been adapted many times, too. Well, this is your chance to read the tale as it was originally written with its original illustrations, drinking in the magic that started it all. With even the cover being inspired by the original, this edition is about as close as you can get to capturing the original thrill of "Peter Pan."
"Peter Pan" was originally published in 1911 by J. M. Barrie with the title, "Peter and Wendy." This edition is carefully constructed from that original text. It also contains the original illustrations by F. D. Bedford.
