Description:

With an Original Pen and Ink Drawing of Pooh and Piglet in Characteristic PoseSHEPARD, Ernest H. Betsy and Joe. Written and illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1966. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title-page, "To Betty Hardiman / Novr. 1966 / Ernest H. Shepard" with a fine original black ink drawing of Winnie-the-Pooh holding Piglet's hand. Octavo (7 7/8 x 5 3/16 inches; 200 x 132 mm.). 78, [2] pp. Full-page frontispiece and fifty-four drawings by Shepard.Publisher's gray textured paper over boards, spine lettered in silver and metallic red. Original pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped). A fine copy.In the mid-sixties the copyright on all the Pooh characters was sold to the Disney Corporation and thus the merchandise which can now be purchased in various forms all over the world bears the Disney copyright as an imprint. "The first of Shepard's 'own' stories, Ben and Brock, was published in 1965. This was the story of a young boy, Ben, and his friend, Brock the badger?In 1966 the second of his own stories Betsy and Joe was published. Betsy is a squirrel and Joe is a tramp. This tells how they shared meals and adventures together. The tramp, as recorded in Shepard's book, was a dying breed when the book was written and therefore the pull on the child readers in the mid sixties was less meaningful. The drawings of the countryside and the portrayal of the villages and fields are a historic record of the time." (Arthur Chandler. The Man Who Drew Pooh, p. 154).Betsy and Joe was Shepard's last book [he was eighty-six years old and would live to be ninety-six].It is somewhat unusual, and fortuitous, that Shepard chose to embellish this little book with a charming image of his most famous characters caught in a characteristic pose, rather than a sketch from the book. Unfortunately we have been unable to identify Betty Hardiman, the recipient. Bookseller Inventory #
