This is a 14" x 18" autographed, matted display of famed Scottish author and dramatist, James M. Barrie, best known for his classic play and book, Peter Pan. The display consists of the following:
1. A one page 5.75" x 7.5" letter written in blue ink by James M. Barrie to Elizabeth on Hotel Royal Danielli,Venezia, letterhead. It is dated May 15. There is a pencil notation to the right of the date that says "1936." He signed it
"J.M B." The letter says,"Conceive me now in gondolas, and Frank in his element; and showing a knowledge of Venice that astonishes Miss Bergnar. The hotel is on the grand canal and the place astonishingly beautiful. We
shall be away a bit longer than I expected-ten days or so, as we don't got to Cortina til the end of the week. This is just to say that I hope you are getting better." The letter is in very good condition, with a central
horizontal and vertical fold, a few creases and wrinkles, and light scattered toning.
