[MILNE]. MILNEI, A.A. (author). Alexandro LEONARDO [Alexander LEONARD] (translator). Winnie Ille Pu. Brasiliae, In Urbe Sancti Pauli [Brasil, Sao Paulo]. 1958.
Small 8vo. Original cream card covers lettered in black, with small vignette of Christopher Robin and Pooh in sepia to upper panel; pp. [ii], 3-100; vestiges of a light vertical crease to upper cover, slight surface dusting and minor rubbing; a very nice copy of a scarce and vulnerable item with light external dusting and rubbing, and cracking to upper hinge (with evidence of neat reglueing); scarce in commerce.
First Latin edition of this classic, surprisingly published in Brasil in a tiny edition of only 100 copies. The standard edition, published in England, followed two years later. Just 10 copies listed on WorldCat (Univ. Minnesota; Univ. Texas, Arlington; Univ. Texas, Harry Ransom; Univ. Washington; Univ. Oxford; B.L.; B.L. ref; Danish Union Cat.; Royal Danish Lib., and Univ. Goettingen).
