The House At Pooh Corner

By Milne, A A




The House at Pooh Corner (1928) is the second volume of stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, written by A. A. Milne and illustrated by E. H. Shepard. It is notable for the introduction of the character Tigger, who went on to become a prominent figure in the Disney Winnie the Pooh franchise. The title comes from a story in which Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore. In another story the game of Poohsticks is invented.

MILNE, A. A.

London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1928. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Quarto. Original blue cloth-backed white boards, printed paper label to front board, edges untrimmed, partly unopened. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Light partial tanning to free endpapers. An exceptionally bright copy in a faintly dust-soiled jacket with slightly darkened spine panel. Signed limited edition, number 60 of 350 large paper copies printed on handmade paper and signed by both the author and artist. Milne began planning his final Pooh book in 1927. Three years of intense publicity were taking their toll on the family, and Milne longed to return full-time to adult literature, telling his brother that "after one more Pooh book I must think of something else. In fact, it's time I tried a novel" (Thwaite p. 328). Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, "Tigger", and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author's most popular creations. Published on 11 October 1928 in an edition of 75,000 regular trade copies, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness. "The Times Literary Supplement congratulated Milne on avoiding 'the temptation to repeat his successful formula mechanically', though it was 'sad to see the stories end'" (Thwaite p. 336); but the stories have never ended for the millions of children who continue to wander the Hundred Acre Wood, where "a little boy and his bear will always be playing".

A book in which we learn the derivation of the game of Poohsticks; it is shown that Tiggers don't climb trees; and ultimately we leave Pooh and Christopher Robin in an enchanted place. Or perhaps it's the other way around. A lovely copy. .
