Its success, following its 1904 premiere, assured Barrie a permanent place in popular culture and spawned an avalanche of novelties that eventually overshadowed most of Barries other works, including his insightful later plays and essays. The story of Barrie and the Llewelyn Davies family has also entered the realm of legend, having been explored in books, plays, and the recent motion picture Finding Neverland.The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University holds a collection of manuscripts and books documenting Barries life and has put a selection of them on display to mark Peter Pans 100th anniversary.

This accompanying catalogue features images and descriptions of objects from the exhibition, forming a timeline that traces the development of Barries work in connection with his life. Timothy Youngs prefatory essay discusses the ongoing impact of this enigmatic genius.
