THE LARGEST AND THE MOST HIGHLY PRIZED EDITION OF PETER PAN IN KENSINGTON GARDENS COMPLETE WITH ITS ORIGINAL INCREDIBLY RARE ILLUSTRATED PRESENTATION BOX. 1ST EDITION THUS . 50 wonderful mounted colour plates, complete with captioned tissue guards. This circa 1912 edition is considered the best edition. This copy has illustrated end-papers, borders on the plate mounts and a gilt top edge. Original green/ gilt decorated cloth. All fifty mounted colour plates and captioned tissue guards are present, as called for, all the plates are in excellent condition. . . This is the large format, 11" x 9" 1912 Arthur Rackham edition and is considered the finest and most highly prized edition, with the fifty stunning mounted colour plates bound throughout the text, a new frontispiece, and with the beautiful additional black and white illustrations that were not present in the 1906 edition. The covers are very good and bright, some light coloured spot marks, more so on the spine, corners sharp, slightly cocked. Very tightly bound, some foxing, pages very bright, end-papers toned/browned, front paste-down top edge is a little rippled, tiny nick on the rear hinge, no inscriptions. The box has had some restoration, a new green covering, still has the original paste-on illustration. The by far most desireable Arthur Rackham Edition of Peter Pan. Made even more desirable with the extremely rare illustrated end-papers and gilt top edge, bordered plate mounts and the incredibly rare original unrecorded box. This edition is recorded in Riall, Hudson, and Latimore & haskell, but neither make any mention of the Presentation Box.
