THE POOH BOOKS, Including: When We Were Very Young; Winnie-the-Pooh; Now We Are Six; and The House at Pooh Corner
by Milne, A. A. [E. H. Shepard, illustrator]
London: Methuen & Co., Ltd, 1928. First editions. A complete set of the first, UK trade editions for all four "Pooh" books in a lovely state of preservation. "When We Were Very Young" is a Nearly Fine copy with the spine gently cocked and slight offsetting to the end papers. "Winnie The Pooh" is a Fine copy of the book. "Now We Are Six" is a Fine copy of the book with minor offsetting to the pages adjacent the half-titles (as always). "The House at Pooh Corner" is Nearly Fine with the spine very lightly faded and faint soiling to the cloth.A. A. Milne would write the Pooh stories after being inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his stuffed animals, one of which was a bear named "Winnie." Milne had written prolifically in other modes and genres, but the Pooh books would go on to outshine all his other works. Indeed, "Winnie The Pooh" has been listed on the New York Public Library's 100 greatest children's books of the century and the Ashdown Forest, where the stories take place, has become a tourist attraction as a result. "I think Pooh's secret is the kindness and generosity of spirit of the characters toward each other." (Jeanne Lamb, NY Public Library).
