ONCE UPON A TIME

PUBLISHED: Hodder and stoughton, London.

n.d. (c. 1920)



8vo, First Charles Robinson illustrated Edition, original gilt

pictorial blue cloth, gilt spine, illustrated with color frontispiece,

pictorial endpapers, chapter headings and tail pieces plus

numerous line drawings in text, pp. 269, some mild spotting

mainly to first & last few pages and some very light wear to

binding, otherwise a good firm copy of a delightful book.



Milne created the story to contain believable, three-dimensional

characters, rather than the stereotypes which will satisfy

children. Hence the book introduces us to a princess who is far

from helpless; a prince who, whilst handsome, is also pompous

and vain; an enchantment which is almost entirely humorous;

a villain who is not entirely villainous and receives no real

comeuppance; a good king who isn't always good; an evil king

who isn't always evil, and so on. The result is a book which

children may not enjoy as much as adults.
