[MILNE, A.A.] / SHEPARD, Ernest Howard

SHEPARD, Ernest Howard So He Sat Down on the Stone in the Middle of the Stream, and Sang Another Verse... An original drawing from The House at Pooh Corner.

1927.

196mm x 222mm. Original pen, ink and wash drawing of Winnie the Pooh sitting on a rock in the stream singing for the first edition of The House at Pooh Corner. Signed in the bottom right corner and with the artist's ownership inscription the reverse, "Ernest H. Shepard Shamley Green Guildford" Very good condition with some very faint foxing to the upper part of the sky.

A fine, large drawing featuring Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood from the opening scene of chapter four: "in which it is shown that Tiggers don't climb trees". Now much beloved and reproduced.
This is Shepard's original drawing for the book and his address to the reverse suggests it was completed in early 1927, as he moved from Shamley Green to Long Meadow later that year. The preparatory pencil rough for this drawing is now in the V&A.

LITERATURE: The House at Pooh Corner by A.A.Mine (Methuen, 1928) p.55.
