MILNE, A. A. ~ Now we are Six... with decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. London: Methuen & Co Ltd, 1927].
8vo, pp. x, , 103, . Illustrations. Publisher’s deluxe olive green leather, gilt, pink pictorial endpapers, gilt edges. Without box or glassine wrapper. Spine and corners minimally rubbed, one or two very light scratches, but an uncommonly good copy.
First edition, deluxe leather issue, signed by Milne on the title-page. Signed copies of any deluxe issues of the Pooh books are most uncommon, particularly so in such neat and presentable condition as this. They are ironically much rarer than the signed limited editions. Provenance: from an English family collection, purchased before 1970.
