Published by Methuen, London in 1927. This is a lovely copy of the children's classic by A. A. Milne, beautifully illustrated by E. H. Shepherd. This lovely book is in its original red cloth boards with beautiful gold guilt detailing. There is some minor rubbing to the top and bottom of the spine and to the corners of the boards. Inside there is a birthday inscription to the front free endpaper (as so often these books were given as sixth birthday presents). There is one very small bump/dent to the front board and the spine is not quite as bright as it once was, but otherwise the book is in lovely condition, with clean bright pages and is in very good to near fine condition. The book comes in its original light blue dust jacket, which is in very good condition. There is just some minor rubbing to the extremities, correlating to that of the boards, and some minor loss and chipping to the corner and spine ends. There is one small tear to the lower edge of the front cover and some light discolouration to the spine. In all, this is a lovely copy of this children's classic and would be a worthwhile addition to any collection.
