The Barrie Exhibition at Yale University
« on: February 17, 2005, 06:39:43 PM »
To those like myself who can't get to the Beinecke's Barrie exhibition at Yale, Timothy Young's superb companion - "My Heart in Company: The Work of J M Barrie and the Birth of Peter Pan" - makes a welcome consolation. It has been exquisitely put together, with colour facsimiles of such gems as Barrie's poem to Michael (transcribed on p128 of my book), pages from the rehearsal script of Peter Pan, and a photograph - entirely new to me - of Barrie with his mother. The images - beautifully reproduced - are accompanied by sharp, incisive words that absolutely capture Barrie's spirit. The book costs $16.95 and is distributed by University Press of New England via their Customer Service Staff, 800-421-1561. The exhibition website - http://www.library.yale.edu/beinecke/brblevents/barrie.htm
also features the brilliant John Hassall's 1907 panoramas of Peter Pan. Having read Tim's book, I'm more delighted than ever that my collection has wound up at Beinecke.

Thanks for the information about the Yale exhibit!
I will order the catalogue and maybe will be able to order the prints some day.

I hope all is well with you.
