Peter & Wendy illustrated by Edmund Blampied (1939)

I've now uploaded the illustrations from Edmund Blampied's edition of Peter & Wendy., another favourite.

Edmund Blampied (1886-1966) was an eminent artist from Jersey. He was noted for his etchings published at the height of the print boom in the 1920s , but was also a lithographer, caricaturist, book illustrator and artist in oils, watercolours and silhouettes.

The Blampied Edition of Peter and Wendy was published in 1939 by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and Scribners in the US. It is illustrated with both black line drawings and beautiful watercolours. The British edition is lavish, and features tipped in colour plates, unlike the US edition in which the colour illustrations are printed on the page (and is a smaller format). Although it is considered one of the finest illustrated editions, it has (surprisingly) never been reprinted.

Nice. What ghostly pictures! Love them! It's terrific to see the various interpretations of Peter Pan via paintings and drawings.
