The House At Pooh Corner

by A. A. Milne

Condition: Very Good+/Very Good


Published by Methuen & co. London in 1928. 8vo. This smart first edition is in Very Good+ condition. Bound in the original salmon pink boards with gold gilt detailing, there is some slight fading to the edges and spine, which also has a small lean to it. There is also some minor bumping to the edges and spine ends and a 3mm mark to the top front edge. Inside, there is some toning to the free endpapers and some very slight age spotting and toning to the pages, but mostly restricted to the page rims, with the pages themselves in clean, bright condition and free from damage. Apart from these minor points, this is a very tidy and collectible copy of this beloved first edition and the pages are predominantly clean and bright.
The dust jacket is in Very Good condition. There is some bumping and chipping to the edges with only some slight loss at the spine ends and board corners. There is some rubbing to the spine and panels and minor water stain and soiling to the rear panel. Other than this, the jacket retains its original colour and is in quite smart condition, a rare find for a much loved children's book such as this and, as such very collectible. It is now housed in a plastic cover to protect it from any further damage.
Over all, this is a lovely, smart first edition of this timeless classic by the ever-popular author, A. A. Milne and will be a book to treasure by generations for years to come. This copy is in very collectible condition and would be an excellent to any rare book collection. Please see photos for further details, as the issues listed are minor and barely detract from this lovely first edition.

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.
