1961 Books for Boys and Girls by A. A. MILNE

Here are two of seven books in the series "Books for Boys and Girls" by A. A. Milne. Both are cloth cover, dated 1961 with illustrations by E. H. Shepard. I paid $1 each at a local swap meet for these charming, vintage books!

In 1961 Disney acquired the licensing rights to produce merchandise and motion pictures based on Winnie-the-Pooh.

Christopher Robin Milne's original bear, which inspired his father to create Winnie-the-Pooh, is currently on display at the Children's Center, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, New York Public Library.
