        The House at Pooh Corner

      London: Methuen. 1928. First. First edition. Decorations by E.H. Shepard. Offsetting from the jacket flaps else fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny nicks at the crown, and a little subtle tanning to the spine. A book in which we learn the derivation of the game of Poohsticks; it is shown that Tiggers don't climb trees; and ultimately we leave Pooh and Christopher Robin in an enchanted place. Or perhaps it's the other way around. A lovely copy. .

Her first publication was as Lisa Hirtz: Il était une petite pie [There was a little magpie] (with 8 pochoirs by Joan Miró) in 1928. She was the editor of Le Phare de Neuilly, which frequently published articles relating to surrealism. In October 1927 Miro completed the gouaches, a part of which would be executed for the 8 plates of this book. Jeanne Bucher (1872-1946) completed the book in 1928. The artistic involvement of the editor was an integral part of the work of preserving the creation of the avant-garde. Lisa Hirtz published Une Petite Pie in Pierre Chareau's gallery, where she had opened her bookstore in 1925. Her interest in children's books was inspired by her grandson, Pierre. Eight gouaches were executed for the colored in plates which were created by Saudet. Edition is limited to 300 copies. Printed on Arches. Signed and dedicated by Lise Hirtz to Jane de Margerie.
