The second edition, published a month after the first, of Milne's collection of poetry for children. The poem 'Teddy Bear' features the first appearance of Winnie The Pooh, here given his formal name of Edward Bear; one of E.H. Shephard's illustrations here ultimately formed the basis for the Disney version of the character.
