A Very Old Winnie the Pooh

A good friend who's studying at Cambridge visited us over the Christmas holidays for a little skiing and relaxation. Then, a couple weeks later, we received this with his thank you note.

I didn't know that Milne was a student at Cambridge.

As you can see, this was ONLY the 68th printing of the book. And only 3 years after its original publication.  Wow!

I wonder how many printings it's undergone since.

What an incredibly thoughtful gift ... worthy of a thank you ... and perhaps a thank you gift! Hmmm, what shall I send?

Wow, I'm so jealous! Winnie the Pooh is one of my favourite children's books. That looks to be a gorgeous copy. What a lovely heirloom that will be to cherish! :)

I agree, Katrina! I was overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and beauty of the gift.
