Winnie-the-Pooh, Now We Are Six, and The House at Pooh Corner
NY, Dutton, (1926, 1927, 1928). The American limited editions of the classic children's books. Winnie the Pooh was published in October 1926 and has never been out of print since. These limited editions, published just after the U.K. editions, were done in limitations of 200 numbered copies for the first two titles and 250 numbered copies for Pooh Corner. Each title is signed by the author and also by E.H. Shepard, the illustrious illustrator. Winnie-the-Pooh is fine in a fine dust jacket and near fine glassine dustwrapper and publisher's box, also near fine. Now We Are Six, pages uncut, is fine in an acetate dust jacket and near fine publisher's box. The House at Pooh Corner, pages uncut, is fine in a fine pictorial dust jacket and near fine publisher's box. The boxes are slightly dusty, with occasional slight abrasions, but overall solid and attractive. The books inside are preserved in near-immaculate condition: the glassine jacket on the first book is almost never intact and here is very near fine, over a fine paper jacket; the acetate jacket of the second volume is likewise seldom found in good condition and here is near fine, with the exception that is has over time shrunk slightly and the rear flap has cleanly separated (easily repaired at the discretion of the purchaser). Probably the nicest set extant of these modern classics. [#021245] SOLD
