Now We Are Six

MILNE, A.A.

PRE-PUBLICATION DUMMY

MILNE, A.A. Now We Are Six

Methuen, 1927.

Pre-publication salesman's dummy. Original publisher's cloth, lettered and decorated gilt in the proof dustwrapper, which differs from the published version in that it is illustrated on the panels and spines but blank on the flaps. Plain endpapers (decorated in the published version). Illustrations throughout the printed section in black and white by E.H. Shepard. A fine copy in a good dustwrapper, rather worn and tanned with a small gouge from the rear panel.

This issue was printed at the proofing stage, prior to the main publication, for the purposes of showing the format to prospective stocking bookshops. The principal difference from the published issue is that it is printed only as far as p.23, the remainder of the pages being blank. Other more minor differences are this issue is bound with a blank before the half-title listing "Other Book by A.A.Milne" on the verso and the list of books on the vesro of the half title is longer; the dedication and introduction pages are blank DEDICATION and INTRODUCTION as place holder text and the contents page lists only the five poems printed follow by "and so on". These are Us Two, The Old Sailor, The Engineer, The Knight Whose Armour Didn't Squeak and Busy, which are interspersed with other poems in the published version, thus whilst the text and illustration is then same as the equivalent poems in the published version, they don't run in the same sequence.
