Item Description: London: Methuen and Co., 1924, 1926, 1927, 1928. 8vo, x, 100 pp.; xi, 158 pp.; x, 103 pp.; and xi, 178 pp. In blue, green, red, and rose cloth, covers stamped and panelled in gilt, backstrips gilt lettered. Top edges gilt. Spine panels uniformly very slightly aged, endpapers and pastedowns with the expected minor offsetting from flaps. The dust-jacket flaps of When We Were Very Young have a small section at the top front and back neatly trimmed and the front panel bears an unobtrusive 2-inch tear without loss. An unsophisticated set that has been together since publication to the present day. Enclosed in a new cloth box. First editions, very rare first state of When We Were Very Young with blank end-papers and no IX in the preliminary pagination. One of the half dozen most famous childrenÕs books in the English language; complete sets in original condition as issued from the day of publication are as desirable as they are rare. MilneÕs tales and ShepardÕs immortal illustrations are iconic and referenced in every book about 20th-century childrenÕs books. C.R. Milne (Christopher Robin) did not live easily with his fame and retired to Dartmouth in Devon where he happily ran The Harbour Bookshop for many years. Likewise, Shepard grew to resent Òthat silly old bearÓ and felt that these illustrations overshadowed his other work. Bookseller Inventory # 104792

Dutton - most probably Elliot Beach Macrae, who was particularly close to the Milnes (and became godfather to Christopher's daughter). Bookseller Inventory # 55928

Item Description: Methuen & Co., Ltd, London, 1928. First edition. A complete set of the first, UK trade editions for all four "Pooh" books. "When We Were Very Young" is an about Fine copy with the spine gently cocked and slight offsetting to the end papers from the jacket. In a Very Good dust jacket that is toned on the spine, lightly soiled and with a few moderate chips and tears, the ones at the top of the spine professionally closed. "Winnie The Pooh" is a Fine copy of the book with the gilt top-edge just a bit dusty, otherwise lovely, in a Very Good + example of the dust jacket, toned on the spine and with a spot of soiling at the foot of the spine, but generally in excellent condition. "Now We Are Six" is a Near Fine copy of the book with the spine a bit faded and worn at the extremities, in a Very Good+ dust jacket with a few small chips at the spine ends and light overall toning. "The House at Pooh Corner" also just about Fine with the spine lightly faded, and minor dustiness to the top-edge, in an attractive, Near Fine dust jacket with a small hole on the front panel, near the spine, and the spine a bit toned, otherwise excellent. Also included is a rare Methuen advertisement for "The House at Pooh Corner" that states: "Ready in the Autumn, 1928." Advertisement is a single sheet, folded once, printed front and back. Also advertised are: "WWWVY" 169th Thousand, "WTP" 91st Thousand, and "NWAS"109th Thousand. Leaf in Near Fine condition, the only such example that we have encountered.A.A. Milne would write the Pooh stories after being inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his stuffed animals, one of which was a bear named "Winnie." Milne had written prolifically in other modes and genres, but the Pooh books would go on to outshine all his other works. Indeed, "Winnie The Pooh" has been listed on the New York Public Library's 100 greatest children's books of the century and the Ashdown Forest, where the stories take place, has become a tourist attraction as a result. "I think Pooh's secret is the kindness and generosity of spirit of the characters toward each other." (Jeanne Lamb, NY Public Library). Bookseller Inventory # 1123
