MILNE, A.A. When We Were Very Young

Methuen, 1924.

First edition, first issue. 8vo. Plain endpapers and page ix unnumbered. Original blue cloth with gilt lettering and gilt vignettes to upper cover, top edge gilt. Illustrated in line by E.H. Shepard. A bright, fine copy in uncommonly nice condition.

This book is the first in a series of four which introduces the characters of Pooh and Christopher Robin. The bear in the poem entitled "Teddy Bear" gives us the first glimpse of the bear who has gone on to become one of the most popular children's characters of all time. Christopher Robin appears in "Vespers", "Buckingham Palace" and various other poems. At the time of publication the writer and publishers had no idea of the huge success which awaited these characters. Their initial print run was only 4500 copies, these sold out on the first week and since then all of Milne and Shepard's "Pooh" books have been reprinted in very many different formats.
