This is the second E.H. Shepard drawing of Poohsticks "For A Long Time They Looked At The River Beneath Them" (1928) to come to auction within a year, showing Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Christopher Robin. This signed ink illustration has been in a private collection for more than 40 years. Last year's Poohsticks was estimated at £30,000 to £50,000. This one is much better, estimated at £100,000. It's in Sotheby's London sale of English Literature, History, Children's Books and Illustrations on 9 December (CLICK).
