For fans of James M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, this is an entertaining, first edition book written by Kevin Telfer. The title of the book is: Peter Pan's First XI: The Extraordinary Story of J.M. Barrie's Cricket Team. The book was published in 2010 by Sceptre in Great Britain and is 336 pages long. The book measures 8.3" x 5.3" x 1.1". What makes this extra special is that the book has been autographed by its author on the title page. This is his original autograph, not a copy. Kevin signed it in May of 2010 in Kirriemuir, Scotland, during the 150th birthday celebration for James. M. Barrie.
To quote from the inside cover of the book:
"The creator of Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie was a hugely enthusiastic cricketer of very little talent. That didn't stop him from leading perhaps the most extraordinary and comical amateur cricket team ever to take the field. Some of the twentieth century's most famous writers including Arthur Conan Doyle, A.A. Milne, P.G. Wodehouse and Jerome K. Jerome turned out for Barrie's team the Allahakbarries.
The book weaves humour, history, literature, biography and,of course, cricket, into a fascinating story of this eccentric group of cricket players.
The book will come with a certificate of authenticity and a lifetime guarantee on its authenticity or a full refund would be made.
I hope you enjoy the book!
