Peter and Wendy

by Barrie, J M

Peter and Wendy (1911) is the title of James M. Barrie's novelization of his most famous play, Peter Pan: or, The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up (1904). Inspired by Barrie's friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family, both the play and the novel tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous young boy who can fly, and his adventures on the island of Neverland with Wendy Darling and her brothers. The novel follows the play closely, though its final chapter is an addition to the original work.Peter and Wendy was first published in 1911 by Hodder & Stoughton in the United Kingdom and Charles Scribner's Sons in the United States. In 1929, Barrie gave the copyright to the works featuring Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), Britain's leading children's hospital.

First Edition Identification

First UK editions of Peter and Wendy have no subsequent printings noted and contain 13 plates, including frontispiece and title page, illustrated by artist F. D. Bedford. First US editions can be identified by the Scribner colophon on the copyright page.

Other Collectible or Notable Editions

With Barrie's permission, the novel was abridged by May Byron in 1915. This version was later illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell in 1921.
