At The Beginning Of This Month,

many books became, 

copywrite free, and by sheer happenstance I came across this book that I mentioned in the post, 

a scarce, signed first Tauchnitz edition of A A Milne's classic children's novel 'Winnie-The-Pooh' signed by both Milne and E H Shepard on the title page, Shepard's signature is dated 1933, 

it is a first edition, in the publishers' original binding, published: Leipzig Bernhard Tauchnitz, size: 6.5" by 4.5", the book is a collection of ten children's stories featuring famous characters and tales such as when Winnie gets stuck in Rabbit's door, Piglet meeting a Heffalump, and Pooh meeting some bees,

the condition is described as: being in the publisher's original paper wraps. externally, in an excellent condition, minor shelf-wear to the extremities, repairs to the head of the spine, internally, firmly bound, pages are very bright, occasional light spots to pages, and why is condition so important? Well it is £7,500.00 for other scarce/rare books have bimble over to Rooke Books.
