Barrie's 1903 "Fairy" notes for Peter Pan
« on: September 14, 2019, 05:56:07 PM »
Transcribed and uploaded at last: Barrie's first 466 "Fairy" notes (believed lost for 60 years!) for the play that was to become Peter Pan. I've written a longish introduction, so I won't waffle on here, except to say that I believe them to be essential reading to anyone interested in the evolution of "that terrible masterpiece".

Pour yourself a glass of whatever, search for "fairy notes" in the database - and marvel!

Can you please tell me where I looked and only saw pages of uploaded writings on Barrie's note.
Not transcribed to be understandable (Barrie has been penmanship lol). If you can let me know or perhaps I could get an email version of the transcript and complete notes that would be great,

Thank you so very much,
J-H-M

The transcripts were uploaded a while back when the new website went up but Andrew Birkin decided to take them off as more work was needed on them. They will hopefully come out again in the near future, in some form or other, but we don't know when. The current pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works and some things had to be put back. Patience!
