When We Were Very Young is a best-selling book of poetry by A. A. Milne.  This book is a first edition 85th printing.

Published two years before Winnie-the-Pooh, this is a delightful verse collection. These poems have been read and re-read for generations, a celebration of childhood, touching the hearts of children and their families for almost a hundred years. 

Ernest Shepard's whimsical illustrations perfectly match Milne's treasured poems.

When We Were Very Young is an excellent addition to your vintage Winnie-the-Pooh collection or home library.


When We Were Very Young is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears.
