Full story with illustration photosHe was the boy who never aged and now a 100-year-old book about intrepid adventurer Peter Pan seems to share the same trait after it was plucked from a charity shop bin bag in almost mint condition.
The beautifully illustrated first edition of JM Barrie's Peter Pan In Kensington Gardens, was discovered by staff as they rifled through a bin bag full of books and bric-a-brac donated to an Oxfam store in Alderly Edge in Cheshire.
Published in 1906, the novel, which is set prior to the author's most famous work originally called Peter Pan and Wendy, features around 50 detailed illustrations.
