The Story of J. M. B. - Denis Mackail

Peter Davies, 1941, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. DJ heavily tanned at the spine, edgeworn with numerous sort tears. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted, spotting to start and finish. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned else.

Portraiture frontispiece. From the cover: “This is the authorised biography of one of the most distinguished figures in recent literature — but read it as a story and it will be found as enthralling as the best of modern fiction. The story of J.M.B. is one of loves and friendships, of splendid success and heartbreaking failure, above all, of the fascinating game of living. Denis Mackail has successfully presented a portrait of Barrie which misses no aspect of his charming, original and ever elusive personality.”
