J.M Barrie's Peter pan is a favourite book of mine , so as I was on one of my regular Charity Shops rumbles I found this an original 1935 print from when Mabel Lucie Atwell illustrated Peter Pan .
Atwell was born in Mile End, London, 4 June 1879

She illustrated children's classics such as Mother Goose (1910), Alice in Wonderland (1911), Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales(1914), The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley (1915), and Peter Pan and Wendy by J.M. Barrie. Attwell contributed illustrations to popular periodicals such as The Tatler, The Bystander, Graphic, and The Illustrated London News. She produced advertising illustrations for clients such as Vim (cleaning product), and illustrated greeting cards as well.
