WINNIE THE POOH.
MILNE. A. A. --- E. H. Shepard. Illustrates.
Published by Methuen and Co. London. 1926.
FIRST EDITION. Illustrated throughout with wonderful line drawings by E. H. Shepard. Brown offsetting mark to decorative map endpapers where the dustwrapper ends, otherwise a near fine, tight and bright copy in original green cloth, gilt stamped decorations of Christopher Robin and Pooh to front board. Top edge gilt. All the gilt, on the boards spine and top edge, is still very bright. The dark green cloth is fine and fresh. Pages look unread. A beautiful copy in original illustrated, better than very good dustwrapper which has uniform and fairly minor darkening all over but is still a bright, fresh example with just two tiny nicks to the top of the spine. Overall a near fine copy of the book in a very good dustwrapper. Uncommon in such nice condition.
