Item Details
Description
Milne (A. A.) [Collected Plays], 4 vol., comprising: First Plays; Second Plays; Three Plays; and Four Plays, first editions, each signed and inscribed to his brother Ken on front free endpaper, 32pp. publisher's catalogue at end of first vol., occasional light foxing, original cloth, paper spine labels a little rubbed and browned, spare labels to vol.2-4, slight fading to strip at top of upper cover of vol.2, uncut, 8vo, 1919-21.

⁂ The inscriptions vary from the brief "To K.J.M. from A.A.M. Sep. 1st 1919" in the first work, to "K.J.M. once again, and always affectionately from A.A.M. April 19th '26". Milne was very close to his brother Ken (1880-1929), who was the middle of three boys. The two occasionally collaborated on articles, using the combined initials 'AKM'. In his autobiography It's Too Late Now, 1939, Milne dedicated the book: "1880-1929 To the memory of Kenneth John Milne who bore the worst of me and made the best of me."
