Synopsis

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.

About Scarthin Books ABA, ILAB

Scarthin Books is based in a three-storey, 2000 sq.ft. shop overlooking the millpond which powered Arkwright's world's-first cotton mill in the hamlet of Scarthin in the village of Cromford, Derbyshire on the edge of England's first National Park, the Peak District. Our ABE list comprises only some of our more valuable, fragile or esoteric stock; our main business remains selling new, second-hand and antiquarian books and music over the counter to flesh-and-blood clients. We also house a home-cooking cafe, serving vegetarian (and some vegan and gluten-free) hot and cold dishes and refreshments. The cafe also hosts meetings of the Cafe Philosophique and Conversation Cafe and regular meetings of Amnesty International and Buddhist Meditation groups, as well as occasional book launches and other gigs. With nearly 100,000 titles in stock, we have since 1974 been evolving towards what a bookshop should really be like. You will feel very much at home here. Our hours are 9-6; 10-6 on Sundays (last cafe orders 5.15)and we close only on Christmas and Boxing Days. Our website www.scarthinbooks.com is also fun.
