111.     [CHILDREN’S LITERATURE]. MILNE, A[lan] A[lexander]. Winnie-the-Pooh. By A.A. Milne with Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. [New York]: E.P. Dutton & Company, 1926. [2, limitation notice], [i-vi] vii-ix [1, blank], [4], 158 [1, vignette], [3, blank] pp., printed on vellum paper, illustrated throughout with 125 sketches by Ernest H. Shepard. 8vo (22.9 x 18.2 cm), original lavender cloth over pink paper-covered boards, pictorial pink paper spine label, both covers with illustrations, pink laid paper endpapers; top and fore-edge trimmed, bottom edge uncut; in original pink pictorial dust jacket; laid in publisher’s matching box covered with pink pictorial paper. Book: Very fine, lower spinal extremity slightly bumped and minor browning to endpapers, otherwise excellent and fresh. Dust jacket: Minor wrinkle at foot of spine (no loss or split), short minor crease at top of front panel, one light spot on rear panel. Publisher’s box: Moderately rubbed and with some small loss of paper at corners, one corner of box lid with clean split (no loss). Glassine wrapper not present. Overall a fine copy of an archetypical children’s book in very desirable state.

     First American edition, large paper copy, limited edition (#140 of 200 copies, signed by author and illustrator in ink). The work came out in England earlier the same year (including two limited editions), has never been out of print, and has been considered a classic of children’s literature since its publication. Shepard’s iconic illustrations perfectly complement Milne’s words.
