The Bear Facts
The first Teddy Bears to find fame in books were in the United States in 1906. Known as Teddy N (for Brown) and Teddy G (for Grey). These Teddy Bears were the Roosevelt Bears which were created by Seymour Eaton, although these bears looked more like real bears than Teddy Bears.
Later many Teddy Bears were used for story telling amongst them three very popular teddies which over time have become popular the whole world over - Rupert Bear, Paddington Bear and of course, Winnie-the-Pooh.
Teddy Bear And Other Songs From When We Were Young first published in 1926. The dustcover is very fragile but still beautiful, the book otherwise is in a reasonable condition. The second book, Songs From Now We Are Six first published in 1927, this is the second edition published in 1928. The dustcover is in reasonable condition and so too are the pages. The third book, Fourteen Songs From When We Were Very Young has unfortunately, lost its dustcover, however, the hard cover has a slight stain on the front but otherwise in reasonable condition, this is a second edition dated 1925.
Some pages have small tears in them but are in good condition for their age.
These books are beautiful because they are so old and the illustrations are 'magical'.
Please enquire if you have any queries on these books.
