Rare first printing, the deluxe issue in full gilt-stamped goatskin and original box, of the second book of short stories about Christopher Robin's forest friends.
THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER
In this collection, we learn that the "house" of the title is Eeyore's, which is (re)built by Piglet and Pooh; that Tigger does not like honey; and that while young Christopher Robin must go off to boarding school, the enchanted place of Pooh and his friends will always be waiting for him. The last of the four books in the Pooh series. This is a gorgeous copy with no significant flaws.
