MILNE, A.A. The Christopher Robin Verses Being "When We Were Very Young" and "Now We Are Six" with a preface for parents by A.A. Milne.

Methuen, 1932.

First edition, first issue. 8vo. Blue cloth with gilt lettering and vignette. Top edge blue. This copy signed by E.H. Shepard on the title page. Twelve colour plates and many line drawings by E.H. Shepard. A very good copy indeed, light spotting to the pages edges.

It was always probable that, sooner or later, the two books of verse which I had written for and about children would come together within the covers of one volume... the invention of a title has proved too much for me. All I can think of is The Christopher Robin Verses. New colour illustrations by E.H. Shepard accompany Milne's now famous poems, Vespers, The King's Breakfast, Lines and Squares and many others.
