VERY RARE INDEED. A signed copy of the first edition, 17th reprint, from December 1919. The signature is on the rear of the half title and it says, 'All good wishes from Daisy Ashford.' written in a very neat handwriting in ink. Undated signature. Hand marbled binding is abraded at the front base, but this copy is not too bad, and all the pages are still firmly bound. The frontispiece portrait of the nine year old author is in place beneath its tissue guard, and the useful preface by J. M. Barrie forms the opening section of the book. This book was a sensation when printed in 1919, as is indicated by the printing history which reveals this copy to be one of the 17th reprints in the first year of publication. The author was only nine when she wrote it, but it was not published until she was approaching 29. The signature is certainly genuine, but it is a mature signature. No nine year old could write in such a classic handwriting style. The binding is indeed original, but it is also rather shabby and obviously 'well read'. The great distinction of this copy is the signature of course. I bought this many years ago from the original owner of the book.Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0.
