AN EXCEPTIONAL PRESENTATION COPY

Vincent Julian Seligman was a descendant of a German Jewish mercantile family that emigrated to the USA and London in the 19th century. Vincent’s father ran the London bank Seligman Brothers; his mother came from an artistic and musical family (and had an affair with Puccini). Seligman dedicated his 1923 book, Oxford Oddities, to Milne and in return was the recipient of this specially inscribed copy of one of the twenty deluxe copies of The House at Pooh Corner, as well as the manuscript of Milne's play Michael and Mary, inscribed and specially bound as a wedding present, in 1930.
