It made $3750 (£2735) in a PBA Galleries (20/15% buyer’s premium) of San Francisco sale of January 21.

Bound by Zaehnsdorf in full morocco gilt in different colours, this special set of Winnie The Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six was limited to 300 examples – not 490 as mistakenly stated on the limitation page of some copies.

Each volume bears the signature of Milne’s son, Christopher, who was the model for Christopher Robin and of course, a book dealer in later life.
