It is tightly bound in the original dark green boards, with gold gilt detailing to the front and spine. There is some very slight bumping to the spine ends and board corners and a couple of small creases in the cloth on the spine. There is also a very small knock to the edge of the back board. Apart from these issues, the binding is in very smart, clean condition.
Inside there is an ownership plate affixed to the front free endpaper and the very occasional rub mark to a page edge, but otherwise the book is in excellent condition, the pages clean, bright and blemish-free. Inserted in the front of the book is a specimen page for Winnie the Pooh, which would have been produced to show an example of the typesetting for the book and to offer a sample of what was to come in the book itself. These are a very rare find and is a lovely item to compliment this beautiful first edition. This beautiful book is enclosed in a fascimile dust jacket, which is in perfect condition amnd compliments the book beautifully. In all, this book is an excellent example of the timeless childrens book, and would be the perfect addition to any first edition book collection.The item "Winnie the Pooh by A.
