An extremely attractive edition of Rackham's illustrations for Peter Pan, first published in 1906. However this 'New' edition has the advantage of having the illustrations staggered throughout, as the story unfolds, rather than bound altogether at the rear, as well as the addition of a further seven black & white plates not featured in the original, a new colour frontispiece illustration of the eponymous Peter, dated 1912, as well as new typesetting and design for the pictorial title-page. Aesthetically, this edition is often preferred to the 1906 edition.
