This is an original drawing of the final book illustration of Pooh and Piglet in the Hundred Acre Wood from A.A. Milne's first book about Pooh, Winnie-the-Pooh (1926). This signed pen and ink drawing is dated 1958 and was recently discovered in the collection of the late Christopher Foyle of Beeleigh Abbey, near Maldon in Essex. An earlier 1925 original drawing of the same scene was sold by Bonham’s (New York) for $220,000 in 2022.
More than 10,000 books and other items from the library of the late Christopher Foyle of Beeleigh Abbey in Essex will go under the hammer at Dominic Winter Auctioneers on Wednesday 27 September 2023 and 31 January 2024
