About This Item

London: Methuen, 1926. First edition. Near fine in near-fine jacket. Signed limited large paper copy, one of only 350 numbered copies signed by Milne and Shepard, of the first book of Pooh prose stories. In Milne's first book of children's verse, WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG (1924), the silly old bear appears in only a couple poems and does not yet have a name. After that book's smashing success, Milne was encouraged by his wife to write down some of the bedtime stories he made up for his son about his favorite toys. Here we get many of the best loved stories from the Hundred Acre Wood: Piglet meets a Heffalump, Eeyore has a birthday, and Pooh runs out of honey. This is a beautiful copy of the deluxe signed edition. 8.75'' x 7''. Original quarter blue cloth, light blue paper boards. In original blue printed dust jacket. Illustrated by Shepard in black and white throughout; folding map at rear. Printed on handmade paper. xvi, 158, [2] pages. Signed by Milne and Shepard on limitation page. Small bump and rub on lower corner, expected offsetting to endpapers, else beautiful. Jacket with toning to spine and some light soil and wear.
