A A MILNE

A A MILNE autograph d1956. British author best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh. However Milne was a noted writer primarily as a playwright before the huge success of Pooh which much to his later frustration went onto overshadow all of his previous work. His two childrens books Winnie The Pooh (1926) and The House on Pooh Corner (1928) both illustrated by E H Shepard have become all-time classics. At the time of Milnes death aged 74 in 1956 the rights to the Pooh books were left to four beneficiaries ; his family / The Royal Literary Fund / Westminster School and The Garrick Club. His widow sold her rights to the Pooh characters to the Walt Disney Corporation which has made many Pooh cartoon movies a Disney Channel television show as well as selling much Pooh-related merchandise. In 2001 the other beneficiaries sold their interest in the estate to the Disney Corporation for $350m ; previously Disney had been paying twice-yearly royalties to these beneficiaries. The estate of  E H Shepard also received a sum in the deal. The copyright on Pooh expires in 2026. In 2008 a collection of original illustrations featuring Winnie-the-Pooh and his animal friends sold for more than GBP1.2m at auction in Sotheby's London. Forbes magazine ranks Winnie the Pooh the most valuable fictional character – in 2002 Winnie the Pooh merchandising products alone had annual sales of more than $5.9 billion.

A rare and highly collectable clearly signed 1952 signature in ink on an autograph book page by A A Milne.

CERTIFICATION ; From the extensive autograph collection of Edna Winter of London SE16. Thought to have been an obsessive collector and hoarder Edna amassed a massive collection of Entertainment / Film / Political and Literary autographs during the 1940-50s. She kept a detailed diary of who / when and where she obtained her autographs from ; it would appear mostly by writing to theatres / home addresses and the major A-list London hotels of the period. It is unknown how she knew which celebrity was staying where and at what time but almost all autographs (very usefully) have venues and dates included with them ; some are also dedicated to her. Wrote to Cotchford Hartfield 14th February 1952. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.
