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

London: Hodder and Stoughton Limited, 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. Exquisitely bound in full native red oasis morocco, gilt, by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, with gilt character tools to gilt-panelled spine, twin morocco title labels, inner two-line rule in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A fine copy, inside and out. First published in 1906, Rackham's illustrations for Peter Pan were reprinted 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.
