    "We might go in your umbrella," said Pooh...

    E. H. Shepard. Original Ink on Paper Illustration of Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. No place, no date. Signed in ink, "Ernest H. Shepard." Illustration measures 6.5 x 5.25 inches; 163 x 132 mm (sight). Framed and matted under glass to overall size of 12.875 x 11.75 inches; 326 x 297 mm. Signature clean and clear, sheet and illustration bright and unblemished. Fine. Not examined out of frame.

    A similar illustration may be found on p. 141 of the first edition of Winnie-the-Pooh (with the positions of Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh switched). A charming illustration of a memorable scene in which the two companions valiantly "set sail forthwith in a south-westerly direction, revolving gracefully," to rescue their dear friend Piglet. From the Pat McInally Collection of Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin
