Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. From the Little White Bird. A New Edition.

London: Hodder and Stoughton, no date [1912]. [Children's illustrated] REVISED 'BEST' EDITION. Quarto (29 x 22cm), pp.[8]; 126 [2]. With 50 chromolithographic plates by Rackham, as well as further occasional wood engravings. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles and decoration to spine and upper board. Neat ink ownership to flyleaf. Very clean within, binding bright with a little sunning to spine, minor fraying to ends and a couple of little nicks/dents to same. Shows well. First published in 1906, Rackham's illustrations for Peter Pan were re-printed several times before this new 1912 edition was produced, with several new illustrations, including a new frontispiece. Considered the best edition of this title, being in a larger format with the plates now bound throughout the text in their proper order, rather than grouped together at the end; it also includes the first appearance of the new colour frontispiece.
