Find copies of The House At Pooh Corner

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.

The House At Pooh Corner

MILNE, A.A

London, London, Methuen & Co.,, 1928. With Decorations by Ernest H. Sheppard Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in full pink morocco, titles and pictorial centre tool to spine gilt, raised bands, rule to boards gilt, multiple decorative blocks to boards gilt, twin rule to turn-ins, gilt edges. Illustrated by E. H. Shepard. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. The little bear described by Christopher Milne in his autobiography as his "inseparable companion" has also become the inseparable companion of generations of children, often remaining the object of that faith late into adulthood. First appearing in 1924, along with his troop of animal friends, in When We Were Very Young, Winnie-the-Pooh was immortalised in Milne's two volumes of poetry and two story books. The illustrations by E. H. Shepard are probably as much loved as Milne's words - the combination of their talents making the books' appeal so remarkably enduring.

London: Methuen. 1928. First. First edition. Decorations by E.H. Shepard. Offsetting from the jacket flaps else fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny nicks at the crown, and a little subtle tanning to the spine. 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. .

The House at Pooh Corner

MILNE, A. A

London: Methuen, (1928). First edition. With illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard. The final installment of the Christopher Robin books introduces the character Tigger to the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood. Although his characters are now beloved by children worldwide, Milne didn’t intend his stories about Pooh to be for children. Instead, they were meant to entertain the child within us all. Milne was a noted playwright who made a point to write whatever he pleased, never wanting to be tied down by his success. Spine slightly faded, very light rubbing to lower corners, else a fine copy in the original peach cloth, with pictorial gilt stamping. T.e.g. Dust wrapper shows minor toning to spine and staining to spine head from older tape repair to verso, affecting the titling. A near fine example of a beloved children’s favorite.
