The author and dramatist J. M. Barrie created this adventure story in 1901 for the Llewelyn Davies family. Barrie befriended the Llewelyn Davies family in the 1890s and his famous character Peter Pan was inspired by the children. Barrie published only two copies of the story – one copy, given to the boys’ parents, was misplaced on a train in 1901. The only other remaining copy is held at the Beinecke Library. An inscription by Barrie reads: “There was one other copy of this book only and it was lost in a railway train in 1901.”
