A magnificent exhibition binding and a very clean copy of this the first edition of the last book in Milne’s fabulous ‘Winnie-The-Pooh’ series.

'There are not so many books that, sitting reading them alone, you find yourself laughing aloud over. This is one of them.'

Herald Tribune, on the publication of Winnie-The-Pooh in 1926.

Milne’s (1882-1956) most popular works were the two sets of stories about the adventures of Christopher Robin and his toy animals - Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl, and Eeyore - as told in ‘Winnie-The-Pooh’ (1926) and this work ‘The House at Pooh Corner’ (1928). Ernest Shepard's illustrations added to the books' charm.
