About This Item

London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1928. Four volumes. Gilt decorated cloth, t.e.g. Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. First trade editions of the constituent volumes of Milne's durable chronicle of the adventures of Christopher Robin, with the circle widening to include Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, et al. The first volume is the second state, with page 'ix' numbered. It bears a small ink 1924 gift inscription in the upper corner of the free endsheet, has a bit of the usual offsetting to the endsheet gutters, and bears the tiny bookplate of Mary Elisabeth Hudson on the pastedown. It is otherwise very good and bright, in lightly worn and tanned dust jacket, with a few small nicks and faint spots. The second volume is fine and bright, in near fine dust jacket with a couple finger smudges on the front panel, a trace of tanning and a few faint spots to the spine panel, and a short, closed tear at the top edge of the front panel. The third volume is fine and bright in very good dust jacket with trace of tanning to spine and edges, and a few faint spots to the spine. The final volume is fine and bright, in a near fine dust jacket with a few faint spots on the spine panel. Withal, while not a perfect set, this a very, very respectable one.
Multi-volume Set

On Sep 17 2017, a reader said:
I read these poems as a child; probably my first book of poems. I loved them then for the whimisical and magical feelings the poems inspire as well as the simple humour a child can well understand and adults still appreciate. The creative imaginations of A. A. Milne will always be cherished in my heart and literary appreciation.
