Dark green cloth, gilt titles to spine, gilt border and vignette to front cover. Pictorial endpapers. Top edge gilt. Absolutely delightful b/w illustrations of Pooh Bear and friends. A children's classic. Very lightest of bumping to spine and a couple of corners. Foxing to endpapers, outer page edges and a few to contents. One hinge pulled. A little browning to endpapers. Front endpaper has a light vertical crease to one side. A few very light margin marks. Pictorial wrapper has become a little faded with some light grubby marks, very slightly edge-chipped. Wrapper also has just under 0.75" vertical tear to top of spine and then a horizontal tear after that under the title. Rear of wrapper has 0.75" closed tears to all 4 corners and a 0.25" tear to base. Some light edge-creasing - sounds much worse than it actually looks - this is still a beautiful copy with a very nice scarce wrapper! [S]

Book summary

Happy 80th birthday, Pooh! The Bear of Very Little Brain and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood have delighted generations of readers since Winnie-the-Pooh was first published in 1926. This deluxe anniversary edition of Winnie-the-Pooh is the perfect way to celebrate the enduring popularity of A. A. Milne's classic work. The interior features the unabridged text and Ernest H. Shepard's charming illustrations in full color on cream-colored stock. The specially designed jacket sports gold ink and a die-cut window that reveals the full-color art on the case cover. It is an impressive package for new fans and collectors both. Three cheers for Pooh!
