MILNE, A.A. (author). E.H. SHEPARD (illustrator). When We Were Very Young. London; Methuen & Co. Ltd. 1927.

8vo. Original deep blue cloth panelled and prettily decorated in gilt with vignettes to both boards, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers; pp. [vi], vii-x + [ii] + 99 + [i]; with line drawings throughout by Shepard; externally near fine, and bright, internally clean and sound, without inscription, and the usual offset-toning to first and final pages.
Early edition, issued just three years after the first edition and produced in precisely the same format. The first edition reputedly sold out on the day of publication. This took Methuen completely by surprise and propelled them into issuing five editions before the end of that year.
