Winnie the Pooh for sale

I like to browse the e-catalogues of Sotheby's and Christies every now and then. So when I was looking for some interesting auctions today, I came across this auction held at Sotheby's London last 14th of July. There were many interesting lots, which all were related to (children) literature or history. From the manuscript of Jane Austen's unfinished novel 'The Watsons' to James Joyce's passport. My favourite lot? This original Winnie the Pooh illustration by E.H. Shepard. It sold for 27.500 GBP:
