Rare JM Barrie Peter Pan book discovered in charity shop
A rare first edition of a Peter Pan book has been discovered in a Cheshire charity shop.
JM Barrie's Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was in a bin bag of books and bric-a-brac donated to the Oxfam Book Shop in Alderley Edge.
Manager Katie Robb said the find was "something extraordinary".
The 1906 limited first edition is illustrated with about 50 colour plates by illustrator Arthur Rackham, who also signed the book.
It will be auctioned at the Alderley Edge Community Book Festival over the weekend and could fetch up to £800.
