Original Winnie-the-Pooh Map Up for Sale in London

The original map of the Hundred Acre Wood from the Winnie-the-Pooh children’s stories is set to go under the hammer next month, with an estimate price tag of up to $200,000.
The ink sketch drawn by E. H. Shepard in 1926 lays out the much-loved fictional world created by A. A. Milne, depicting characters Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet and Eeyore, Reuters reported.
“It’s such a valuable piece because it’s such an obvious entry into the world of Winnie-the-Pooh,” Philip Errington, book and illustrations senior specialist at auction house Sotheby’s said.
“It’s there as you open the book of the first edition, it’s there on the end papers. It’s also there in the Disney cartoon,” he added, referring to the 1966 “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree” film.
The map, with an estimate of $133,260-$200,000 will be auctioned at the English Literature, History, Science, Children’s Books and Illustrations sale in July.
Four other Winnie-the-Pooh illustrations by Shepard are also being offered, including one of Christopher Robin and Pooh walking to say goodbye, as in Milne’s ending in “The House at Pooh Corner”.
