This is a very rare, collectable 1st edition, 1st printing of WINNIE THE POOH - one of the classics of children's literature. Printed by Methuen & Co.
In Great Britian, and published in 1926, it is a TRUE 1ST EDITION, 1ST PRINTING, with only the one date "First Published in 1926" appearing in the book. There were 5,500 first editions, first printings of this book, with about 3,500 still in existence and this is one of them. The book is in excellent condition esp.Considering it is nearly 100 years old. I've not seen many examples of this rare book in better condition. I hope I look as good when I'm a centenarian!! All pages are present and the maps in the front & back look great. The spine is fully intact & tight and all the letters on the spine are clearly visible. The gold gilt at the top of the pages is still evident. There is no handwriting or inscriptions anywhere in the book.
The illustrations are all clean and untouched/not coloured-in. An exceptional authentic copy of A A Milne's iconic children's title with wonderful Ernest Shepard drawings inside. No offers please, as I know this 1st, 1st of WTP in excellent condition is definitely worth it.
This book is will definitely increase in value in the run-up to the 100th anniversary of the publication of Winnie-the-Pooh in November 2026. A wonderful gift for someone special and a collectors' item for the high-end collector of rare books.
