December 10 , 2014
A famous drawing of Winnie the Pooh has fetched £314,500, thrice its estimate, at Sotheby’s.
The ink drawing by EH Shepard was published in 1928. It featured in the AA Milne book ‘The House At Pooh Corner’, and was in a private collection from the 1970s.
Milne and Shepard worked on four books together, in the 1920s.
The auction in London also had items from literature and history along with illustrations, media reports said.
