We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Six Drawings by E. H. Shepard Illustrating Poems from When We Were Very Young by Milne, A. A..

Description:

Folio. (6)ff. Copy number one of twenty copies signed and numbered by the author, A. A. Milne, and the illustrator, E. H. Shepard, in pencil. When We Were Very Young was Milne's first collaboration with Shepard, and the first of the four Christopher Robin books. Each of Milne's poems is printed in calligraphic script and surrounded by a border of several vignettes by Shepard. The six poems selected are "Teddy Bear," featuring the first appearance of Milne's most famous character, Winnie-the-Pooh, "Happiness," "Hoppity," "Vespers," "Lines and Squares," and "The Kings Breakfast." The broadsides are printed on Japan paper, mounted on mat board, and protected with tissue guards. On the reverse of each is a small label bearing the title and publisher's information. The poems are elegantly presented and intended for framing, and as a result, it is likely that many of these sets were broken up. The mounted broadsides range in size from 12 3/4 by 9 3/4 inches to 20 by 15 3/4 inches. Loose in a gray portfolio. Title labels for the set are mounted to the inside flap and inside back panel of the portfolio, and a slip with additional labels for each of the drawings, intended to be adhered to the back board of a picture frame, is also tipped in on the inside back panel. Short, closed tear to margin of one mat, not affecting the broadside, boards soiled, else a fine set of these rare broadsides. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Methuen, London, 1925. Condition: Very Good. First edition. Folio. Large quarter cloth and papercovered boards portfolio with printed labels containing six loose prints, each of which is uniformly hand numbered as number 31 of 250 numbered copies. One of 250 copies of this suite of illustrations for the first Winnie-the-Pooh book. Soiling and wear to the portfolio, very good; the prints themselves are all pretty much fine, with the two largest prints with very light marginal wear; several of the original tissue guards have offset from their facing illustrations (likely the set remained undisturbed for many years). Very attractive and scarce. Seller Inventory # 308922
