About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG by Milne A. A . [Shepard, Ernest H., illus.].

Description:

First edition. Illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard throughout. 8vo, publisher s original dark blue cloth, lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt on the spine and upper cover. Now handsomely presented in a blue morocco backed solander case and chemise. x,100 pp. A very pleasing and handsome copy with very minimal evidence of age. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST VOLUME ISSUED IN ONE OF THE GREATEST SERIES IN TWENTIETH CENTURY CHILDREN S LITERATURE. The Pooh Stories of A.A. Milne stand out in the field of 20th century children s literature. Their popularity, with both the young and the old, has only grown as the years have passed. The themes of these stories, and the gentle kindness of the characters, are forever poignant and touching. If a day ever comes when these books seem old fashion or out-of-style, one could only have pity for that future world. It should also be noted that Ernest Shepard s illustrations for these titles are as outstanding -and as timeless - as the stories themselves. The books were originally published over the course of four years, beginning with WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG in 1924 and ending with HOUSE AT POOH CORNER in 1928. Bookseller Inventory #
