A beautiful copy of the deluxe signed edition of Milne's classic tale. A.A. Milne had no idea when he turned his little boy Robin’s favourite toy into a children’s character, that he would become one of the most well-loved and recognised children’s characters in the world. This, the first volume of stories featuring Winnie-the-Pooh, describes the adventures in the forest of Christophe Robin's teddy bear & his companions of the nursery, the old grey donkey Ee-yore, Kanga and Baby Roo, Owl & Rabbit. Delightfully illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard, with a map of Hundred Acer Wood folded in at rear.
