Product description

If I May - A. A. Milne (Methuen "Modern Masterpieces" series, 1927) - vintage book
 
A. A. Milne, "If I May" (Methuen "Modern Masterpieces" series: London, Methuen & Co. Ltd.; first published October 14th 1920, eighth edition 1927). Vintage hardback book (blue cloth boards with gilt title to spine and facsimile signature to front) with original dustwrapper, 184pp plus title and contents pages, measuring approximately 11.3 x 17.3 x 2.2cm (4.45 x 6.8 x 0.85in). A collection of essays reprinted "with such alterations and additions as seemed proper" from various newspapers and magazines, in which the author of "Winnie-the-Pooh" fame muses wittily upon such miscellaneous subjects as "The Case for the Artist", "Christmas Games", "Going Out to Dinner", "Children's Plays", "The Burlington Arcade" and "State Lotteries" (this last essay refers to Premium Bonds, which had been proposed at the time but which were not in fact introduced until 1956).
 
The dustjacket is discoloured (especially to the spine) and marked with age wear including scratches and indentations to the surface and bumping, creasing, tearing and slight loss to the edges and corners; the boards are discoloured and faded to a lesser extent (again, mainly to the spine) with some wear and bumping to edges and corners; there is some browning to the inside covers and endpapers, the front endpaper bearing an old pre-decimal price and code in pencil; the pages are discoloured with tanning to edges and occasional marks together with some creases and edge and corner wear (including some raggedness to some edges and corners which may date from publication); the binding is weak in places but remains intact.
