First edition, first printing of A.A. Milne's beloved classic children's book, ''Winnie-the-Pooh'', complete in its original dust jacket and signed by the equally famous Pooh illustrator, Ernest H. Shepard. London: Methuan and Co., 1926. Shepard signs the title page, ''Ernest H. Shepard'' in black fountain pen.

Beautifully illustrated throughout with full page drawings by Shepard, this is the first book that Milne wrote with Christopher Robin, Pooh, and the gang as the singular focus of the story. With all first printing points present: ''First Published in 1926'' on copyright page; green cloth boards stamped with Christopher Robin and Pooh in gilt on front; endpapers illustrated with maps of ''100 Aker Wood''; yellow jacket with ''7/6 net'' price on spine; ''117th thousand'' printed on rear panel of jacket.

A very well-preserved copy with only slight cocking to spine, toning to endpapers, and slight separation starting on page 33. Overall in very good plus condition. Jacket is almost equally well preserved, with faint dampstaining and light chipping; very good condition. Book is consigned by the great-grandchild of the recipient, A. McArthur Morison, who lived near the area of 100 Acre Wood in East Sussex and knew Shepard as a result.
