Notes

First edition, first impression, the scarce extra-deluxe issue in the publisher's morocco binding, in bright and attractive condition. This binding was produced in very small numbers following the success of the deluxe calf editions.
Milne began planning this, his final Pooh book, in 1927. It was the first work to feature "Tigger", who would become one of the author's most popular creations. Published on 11 October 1928, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness. "The Times Literary Supplement congratulated Milne on avoiding 'the temptation to repeat his successful formula mechanically', though it was 'sad to see the stories end'" (Thwaite p. 336).
