About This Item

London: Methuen and Co., 1927 Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. First edition, first printing. Publisher's red cloth, with an illustration of Christopher Robin to the front board in gilt, illustration of Pooh and Piglet to the rear board in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, pictorial pale pink endpapers with illustrations of Christopher Robin and Pooh in blue, pale green dust jacket lettered and decorated with illustrations in blue. An extremely bright copy with a touch of wear to the extremities, tear to middle rear endpaper, former owner bookplate to front pastedown; in a near fine dust jacket with only the slightest wear at the corners and very mild toning to the spine. A very attractive copy in an exceptional example of the dust jacket. Now We are Six is a collection of thirty-five children's poems and verses that comprises the third of four volumes in The Pooh Books, Milne's series of children's books featuring the adventures of the teddy bear character Winnie the Pooh and his friends of the Hundred Acre Wood. Like the rest of the books in the series, Milne wrote Now We are Six for Anne Darlington, the daughter of family friends whom both families hoped would marry Milne's son Christopher Robin; while the first Pooh book When We Were Very Young was dedicated to Christopher Robin, Now We Are Six is dedicated to Darlington. As Milne alludes in his introduction, "We have been writing this book for three years. We began it when we were very young and now we are six." Although only a few of the poems feature him, Winnie the Pooh frequently appears in Shepard's decorations. As Milne explains, Pooh "thought it was a different book; and he hopes you won't mind, but he walked through it one day, looking for his friend Piglet, and sat down on some of the pages by mistake.". First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

Synopsis

More entertaining verses and delightful pictures in the style of When We Were Very Young . "Gay verses about all manner of things, which with their original rhythm dance their way into memory."-- Four to Fourteen, 1927
