In the story, Pooh has invented the game of throwing a stick on one side of the bridge and waiting to appear on the other. The famed drawing of three buddies was first published in AA Milne’s second book – “The House at Poog Corner” in 1928 and later was used for the front page of many children’s books.
A pencil drawing of the same scene sold at Sotheby’s last year for £58,750 ($92,200).
Other items for sale at the auction in London included classic children’s works by Beatrix Potter, Mike Margolis and Arthur Rackham.
