Large square 8vo. Original blue buckram-backed cream boards, with onlaid paper lettering label to upper cover, top edges rough, others uncut and unopened, preserved in original letterpress dustwrapper; pp. [vi]- xi + 178, printed on fine handmade paper; with illustrations throughout in line by Shepard including some full-page; both externally and internally fine bar slight foxing and dusting to top edges, without inscription, and unread; protected by an attractive example of the dustwrapper with some overall dusting and rubbing, mild soiling to spine and fore-edges, nicking and a short, almost closed, tear to head of spine (20mm), and another (12mm) to bottom edge of upper panel; remarkably scarce by virtue of the tiny limitation alone.
First edition de luxe, printed as a large paper copy on the finest stock, limited to only 350 numbered copies and signed in ink by both A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard. A rare, and superior, edition of this perennial children's favourite. Tigger makes his first appearance in this book, which is the sequel to Winnie-The-Pooh, published two years earlier.
