Inv. #5449. Eight volumes. 3/4 Green leather over green cloth boards. Author's edition, with facsimile signature of J.M. Barrie. From the Introduction: "This is the only American edition of my works produced with my sanction, and I have special reasons for thanking Messrs. Scribner for its publication; they let it be seen, by this edition, what are my books, for I know not how many volumes purporting to be by me are in circulation in America which are no books of mine.... They consist of scraps collected and published without my knowledge, and I entirely disown them. I have written no books save those that appear in this edition." This was in 1896, and Barrie wrote more, including the story of Peter Pan. The set is complete as of the date of its publication. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
