When We Were Very Young

MILNE, A.A.

They're Changing Guard at Buckingham Palace

MILNE, A.A. When We Were Very Young

Methuen, 1924.

First edition. Original blue cloth with gilt lettering and gilt vignettes to upper cover, top edge gilt. Pictorial endpapers. The collection of verses is illustrated throughout by E.H. Shepard. A very good copy, with light wear to the spine ends and corners and ownership inscription to front endpaper.

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 places. Methuen could have had no idea of the huge success which awaited these characters and a mere 4500 copies of the first edition were printed. These sold out on the first week and Milne and Shepard's "Pooh" books have remained in print, in very many different formats, ever since.
