“Winnie-the-Pooh’s Original Hundred Acre Wood – Unseen for 50 Years”

Of the many things I’m proud of as a Summit Sotheby’s International Realty agent, one is my affiliation with the storied auction house of Sotheby’s. Their auction items are fascinating, from fine furniture to vintage cars to antique manuscripts and drawings. In next month’s English Literature, History, Science, Children’s Books and Illustrations auction, among other amazing offerings they are presenting a carefully curated collection of illustrations for the world of Winnie the Pooh:

Winnie-the-Pooh’s Original Hundred Acre Wood – Unseen for 50 Years

As the setting for the cherished adventures of Christopher Robin and his friends Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore, the Hundred Acre Wood is possibly the most famous map in children’s literature.

On 10 July, Sotheby’s will offer for sale an original sketch of this memorable backdrop to A.A. Milne’s classic creation, after it has remained unseen for almost half a century.  Drawn by illustrator E.H. Shepard, the sketch encompasses unforgettable locations from the “Pooh Trap for Heffalumps” to the famous spot “where the Woozle wasn’t”.
