Milne, A.A.
When We Were Very Young. Methuen & Co., 1925. 8vo, org. publisher's limp calf gilt, a.e.g., pictorial endpapers, red silk marker (detached and loosely inserted). Tenth ed, second deluxe.
Milne's first foray into children's writing, charmingly illustrated by Shephard, was so popular the first printing sold out in a day. Unlike his later books the deluxe edition was produced later in the run, first for the 7th ed and again for the 10th.

Not Sold
Estimated at £150 - £250


 

. A little wear to binding, mainly head and foot of spine, endpapers foxed, text block cracked between pp. 64-5 but still tight, clean inside. An attractive copy.
