Here we offer an early US edition of A. Milne's classic, Winnie the Pooh, published by E. Dutton and Company, New York, in 1927.
This is a stated 46th edition, the word "edition" here used as "printing" is usually used, so this is effectively the 46th print run, or 46th batch of about 1,000. The book comes with a professional-quality facsimile dust jacket of the first retail edition, printed with archival inks on acid-free bond. Shepard's now iconic drawings, these tales, originally written by a father for his son, featuring all the beloved Winnie the Pooh characters, delight children as well today as they did almost a century ago.Lightly worn boards please see pics. Foxed but uninscribed front endpapers bear a period bookplate. Very tight and square binding; very clean, bright, and crisp text with light foxing.
159 pages, approximately 7.5 x 5-inches. Dust jacket is sleeved in acid-free mylar and ready to slip into your collection. Comes with a very rare facsimile of the illustrated leaflet inserted into the original UK "Winnie the Pooh" book advertising Milne's works.
