About this Item: E.P. Dutton & Company, New York, 1926. Signed limited first edition of this classic work, one of 200 copies of the large paper edition. Octavo, original half cloth, folding map at rear. lllustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. Signed by both A.A. Milne and Ernest H. Shepard. Additionally signed again by Ernest Shepard on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. An exceptional example. "Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh has been considered a classic of children's literature almost since its publication" (Cooper & Cooper). In 1925, A.A. Milne purchased "a Sussex farmhouse for use as a weekend and holiday alternative to the family's London home. [that would] provide the setting for the stories he now started to write about [his son] Christopher's toys. Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner [its companion volume, published 1928] are, on their own terms, more successful as works written for children than anything else produced during children's literature's Golden Age" (Carpenter). "Ernest H. Shepard's illustrations, modeled after the actual toys, show character and movement in simple line vignettes, which add so much to the books that most people consider them to be inseparable from the texts" (Silvey).

Winnie-the-Pooh is the second in Milne's series of children's books featuring the adventures of the teddy bear character Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Each telling an individual and complete story, the chapters of Winnie-the-Pooh can be read independently of one another. Milne created the story of Winnie the Pooh for his son Christopher Robin, who had a teddy bear named Edward Bear. In his introduction, Milne explains how Edward Bear became Winnie the Pooh, although he notes that "we can't remember whether Winnie is called after Pooh, or Pooh after Winnie." The name "Winnie" comes from a bear that the Milnes saw at the London Zoo, while the name "Pooh" is from a swan whom the fictional Christopher Robin encountered in When We Were Very Young (1924).

About this Item: Methuen & Co., Ltd 1924-1928, London, 1924. First editions of each work in Milne's wonderful Pooh quartet. Octavo, original cloth, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. Winnie the Pooh is signed by A.A. Milne on the title page. When We Were Very Young if a first edition, second issue as usual with page ix numbered.

Housed in a custom full morocco clamshell box with a morocco inlay of Winnie the Pooh to the front panel. Illustrated by Ernest Shepard. An exceptional set, most rare and desirable with Winnie the Pooh signed by Milne. "Although Alan Alexander Milne wrote novels, short stories, poetry and many plays for adults, in addition to his work as assistant editor for Punch from 1906 to 1914, it is his writings for children that have captured the hearts of millions of people worldwide and granted Milne everlasting fame" (Silvey, 461). Milne wrote most of these poems at the request of friend and fellow poet Rose Fyleman, who was planning a new children's magazine. "On a rain-blighted holiday in Wales, [Milne] escaped from the crowd of fellow guests to the summerhouse, and for 11 days wrote a set of children's verses, one each day. 'There on the other side of the lawn was a child with whom I had lived for three years [his son, Christopher Robin]. and here within me were unforgettable memories of my own childhood.' He added more verses when he got home, enough for a book, and allowed some to be published in advance in Punch" (Carpenter & Prichard, 351). Shepard, a Punch staff artist at the time, provided delightful line vignettes, resulting in "a wonderful marriage of verse and vision. His delicately precise and fresh drawings had an instant appeal" (DNB). Seller Inventory # 95227

About this Item: London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1929, 1929. Octavo. Original pink cloth, titles to spine and pictorial design to front cover gilt, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine bumped, partial tanning to half title and colophon, dust jacket nicked and chipped to corners. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Third edition. With an original pen and ink drawing on the title page by Shepard of Winnie-the-Pooh in full traditional Russian costume including a fur hat and playing a balalaika, signed beneath the image. Rare thus. Milne began planning his final Pooh book in 1927. Three years of intense publicity were taking their toll on the family, and Milne longed to return full-time to adult literature, telling his brother that "after one more Pooh book I must think of something else. In fact, it's time I tried a novel" (Thwaite p. 328). Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, "Tigger", and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author's most popular creations. Published on 11 October 1928, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness. "The Times Literary Supplement congratulated Milne on avoiding 'the temptation to repeat his successful formula mechanically', though it was 'sad to see the stories end'" (Thwaite p. 336).

About this Item: Methuen and Co, London, 1926. Signed limited first edition of this classic work, one of 350 copies of the large paper edition. Octavo, original half cloth, folding map at rear. lllustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. Signed by both A.A. Milne and Ernest H. Shepard. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. "Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh has been considered a classic of children's literature almost since its publication" (Cooper & Cooper). In 1925, A.A. Milne purchased "a Sussex farmhouse for use as a weekend and holiday alternative to the family's London home. [that would] provide the setting for the stories he now started to write about [his son] Christopher's toys. Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner [its companion volume, published 1928] are, on their own terms, more successful as works written for children than anything else produced during children's literature's Golden Age" (Carpenter). "Ernest H. Shepard's illustrations, modeled after the actual toys, show character and movement in simple line vignettes, which add so much to the books that most people consider them to be inseparable from the texts" (Silvey).

About this Item: Methuen, London, 1928. First editions. Complete set of first editions of the Pooh Books, all in original dust jackets, with WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG signed by Milne and Shepard. In 1933 Compton Mackenzie described the publication of the first Pooh Book, WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG as marking "an epoch as positively as any children's book has ever marked one. It is not extravagant to surmise that a distant posterity may find in that volume of children's verse a key with which to unlock the present more easily than with any contemporary novel, poem, or play" (quoted in Thwaite). The series is an evocative reflection of English childhood in the 1920s, yet transcends the time and place of its making for each new generation to discover - and fall for. As the first book in the series, WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG is the most difficult to find signed, making this an especially desirable set. 4 volumes, 7.5'' x 5'' each. Original blue, green, red and pink cloths. In original color printed dust jackets. Top edges gilt. WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG has page ix, not the very rare first state. Signed by Milne and Shepard on title page of WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG. Contemporary Methuen ad laid into SIX. Housed in beautiful blue goatskin box with in-laid Pooh design on front board. Books all fine, with only a bit of the typical offsetting in the gutter: Firm hinges, fresh cloth, clean text, no inscriptions. Jackets range fine (WINNIE-THE-POOH) to very good (HOUSE, with some small chips to spine ends not affecting text); WWVY and SIX solidly near fine with only a bit of shallow chipping and touch of toning to spine of SIX: else little soil or sunning. Overall fine in near-fine jackets. Seller Inventory # 39921
