INSCRIBED BY A.A. MILNE
MILNE, A.A. Michael & Mary. London: Chatto & Windus, 1930. Octavo, original brown cloth, uncut and mostly unopened, original dust jacket. $550.
First edition, inscribed on the title page, "A.A. Milne. (for Louis Grabosky)."
Until the success of the Pooh books starting in the mid-twenties, Milne was probably best known as a playwright. Michael and Mary, a light comedic drama about marriage, was produced in 1930 and turned into a movie two years later. Bookplates, including recipient's bookplate.
Book fine, original dust jacket with tape repairs to verso, tears to rear panel. A very good copy.
