J. M. Barrie and May Byron (illustrated by Mabel Lucie Attwell), "Peter Pan and Wendy, Retold for Little People" (1951) - vintage story book (SOLD)
"J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy. Retold by May Byron for little people with the approval of the author. Pictures by Mabel Lucie Attwell" (London, Hodder & Stoughton, 1951). Vintage hardback children's story book (blue-grey textured boards), 128pp plus seven gravure illustrations in dark blue or brown, measuring approximately 14.5 x 20.8 x 2cm (5.7 x 8.2 x 0.8in). Attwell's signature is visible on all but one of the gravure illustrations; there are also several line drawings.
No dustjacket; the cover is discoloured and marked with age wear including bumping to the edges and corners, whilst there is considerable discoloration and perhaps slight fading to the spine; the front endpaper bears an old pre-decimal price and date code in pencil; the pages are discoloured with varying degrees of foxing and other marks (the blue gravure illustrations have marked the pages facing them), some wear and bumping to edges and corners, some creasing, and slight loss to the bottom corners of two pages (not affecting the text or illustrations). The book nevertheless remains complete and fully readable.
