    Description

    A[lan] A[lexander] Milne. The House at Pooh Corner ... With Decorations by Ernest Shepard. London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., [1928].

    First trade edition. "Crown" octavo. xi, [1, blank], 178, [2] pages. With intertextual illustrations by Shepard.

    Publisher's deluxe binding of full limp red morocco, in the scarce original publisher's box of gray card stock with paper labels printed in blue. (A short tear to box's top cover side flap and some rubbing to extremities, but overall a remarkable survival, almost never found with the book.) Double-fillet borders rolled in gilt, gilt floral stamps at corners, pictorial centerpiece on front board (Christopher Robbin and Eeyore) stamped in gilt, smooth spine elaborately lettered and tooled in gilt, pictorial salmon endpapers, all edges gilt. Some very subtle rubbing to binding, else a very good copy.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
