Published by Methuen, London; 1925. This extremely rare copy of the King's Breakfast by the ever-popular author of Winnie the Pooh is in Very Good condition, smartly bound in original boards, with green binding and protected in a plastic sleeve for protection.The book is part of a limited edition print run of just 100 copies, making it incredibly rare and hard to come by, with only a couple of copies currently available online for sale. It is numbered 56 of 100, and is signed by A. A. Milne, E. H. Shepard, and the music composer, H. Fraser-Simon.
There is a very small amount of bumping and chipping to the edges and a red mark to the front board. There is some rubbing and some small loss to the boards on the rear cover. The title label is affixed to the front board and shows some slight toning. These are very minor points and the binding is very smart and tidy condition. Inside, the pages are clean and bright and in excellent condition. There is just some minor toning to the pages, particularly the title page, and some slight chipping to the edges corresponding to that of the boards, but these are the only issues to note at all.
This beautiful book is incredibly collectible and would be the perfect accompaniement to any Milne and Winnie the Pooh book collection. Copies such as this are very hard to come by, particularly in such good condittion, and something to treasure for a lifetime.
