Winnie The Pooh

Methuen & Co London 1926

First edition / first impression

 

 An original copy and dust jacket with illustrations by E. H. Shepard.

 

Book condition: Bound in its original green cloth covers this is a very good example of the scarce second book in the Pooh series and the most sought after. Decorated in gilt to the covers the book presents very well with minimal signs of age or wear. There are a few light marks in places to the binding with a touch of wear to the extremities else clean tight and square with the gilt nice and bright. Internally excellent throughout with the correct first issue beige endpapers later printings would have green ones. Correct info to the copyright page to identify this is as the true first print showing the date of just 1926.Beautifully illustrated throughout by E H Shepard with numerous full/half page and line illustrations. All pages one the whole very clean with the odd thumb mark.

Dust jacket condition: The dust jacket is a very good original example from a later print. Although a little grubby it is generally complete with a little chipping to the spine tips and the odd corner. No nasty rips or tears with no missing pieces presenting well and certainly one of the harder original dust jackets to find.

All in all a charming title to find presenting very well and a good chance to add this must have classic to the collection.
