Bright and unmarked. In the original box with original printed paste on labels on top box top and one edge, as issued. Box top, label soiled. Sm. 8vo. xi, 178 pp. In October 1928, "The House at Pooh Corner" was published in both London and New York, to unanimously rapturous reviews. Everyone had been told that it was to be the last book about Christopher Robin and his friends in the Enchanted Forest. From Milne's point of view, it seemed a good idea to finish on a high note, before anyone had a chance to weary of the characters. There was also the growing need to protect the real Christopher Robin, if possible, from the relentless glare of publicity.A review of "The House at Pooh Corner" in Punch remarked wistfully" :It is too bad Christopher Robin has to grow up." The warning bell had sounded. ( Book Magazine Collector, Sept. 1995, p. 10). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

C'est un grand réconfort pour moi de savoir que, loin de Paris, mon effort est suivi avec sympathie par des esprits que j'estime. Vous trouverez ci joint les quelques photographies demandées. Ne manquez pas de récrire à moi, si je puis être en quoique ce soit utile au Club. Et croyez, je vous prie, à mes sentiments les plus sympathiques, René Clair. P.S. 1.) Présentez encore une fois mes excuses à M. Spilliaert. J'ai beaucoup déploré que la fatigue de ma femme m'empêche d'aller chez lui. 2.) Si par hasard, M. Ensor était d'humeur facile un jour, pourriez-vous lui demander s'il voudrait me céder le charmant dessin qui me tentait (vous savez, avec ce petit parachute et les bonshommes accrochés) [ ] ". -Léon Spilliaert (1881-1946) was a Belgian painter and graphic artist; James Ensor (1860-1949) was a Belgian painter and printmaker. On stationery with printed address.
