MILNE, A.A.

ONE OF 20 INSCRIBED IN VERSE TO MILNE'S PUBLISHER

MILNE, A.A. Now We Are Six With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard

Methuen & Co., 1927.

First edition. Number 14 of 20 copies of a special deluxe, large paper edition, printed on japon and bound in vellum with yapp edges, signed by both Milne and Shepard. Lettered in gilt on the upper cover. Author's presentation copy, inscribed to his American publisher, John Macrae, signed and dated Jan. 1928. "A gallant Knight is John Macrae - / He takes me on his pillion, / And round and round the U.S.A. / He dashes on his headstrong way,/ Until there dawns the glorious day / When he can sheath his sword and say, / 'Well, Now We Are Six Million.'" Illustrated throughout by Ernest H. Shepard. A near fine copy, very slightly bowed.

The most luxurious and exclusive format in which Milne's Pooh books were issued. Naturally, scarce by dint of its small limitation, it is exceptionally rare as a presentation copy. We know of only one other, (no. 3 inscribed to Vincent Seligman).
