    A. A. Milne. When We Were Very Young. London: Methuen & Co., [1924]. First edition, second state of the contents leaf with the pagination (ix) present. Octavo (7.375 x 5 inches; 186 x 126 mm.). x, [2, fly-title (verso blank)], 99, [1] pages; in-text illustrations by Ernest Shepard. Publisher's blue cloth, boards stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others rough-trimmed; plain endpapers. In the original dust jacket. Spine very gently leaning; spine ends rubbed; backstrip just a shade dulled; mild bubbling to the cloth around the edges of the rear board; corners with just a touch of wear. Text with some sporadic faint marginal soiling; a few leaves with some very soft creasing; free endpapers somewhat discolored along the hinge, front free endpaper with a touch of soiling; over-opened at between the first and second gatherings. Dust jacket front flap slightly soiled (matching that of the front free endpaper); only a hint of rubbing. A very good, or better, copy in a nearly fine dust jacket. A stunning example.
