“This book was written in 1915, for the amusement
of my wife and myself at a time when life was not very amusing.”


The above words are those of Milne from the Preface to this volume, published originally in 1917 to a quiet reception indeed. It was, nonetheless, his favourite work, and the art of Charles Robinson – described by Catherine Porter in Collecting Books as “swirling lines circling innocent child faces” - is well-suited to these whimsical chapters. Warm gift inscription in fine pen from 1926 and a later previous owner name, both on the half-title, else a clean copy with bright vignette on front cloth-covered boards.

Hodder and Stoughton Limited, London; n.d. pp. [4] 5-269, illustrated endpapers; colour frontis, 27 line drawings, vignettes; beautiful motif in gilt and black over bright blue cloth-covered front boards; lacking the very scarce dustjacket .
