Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, “Tigger”, and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author’s most popular creations.
First edition of the second Winnie-The-Pooh book with the classic combination of writer, A. A. Milne (1882-1956) and artist, Ernest H. Shepard (1879-1976). They had earlier collaborated in contributions to Punch magazine and in Milne’s verse collection, ‘When We were Very Young’ (1924).
