The most famous map in English literature is about to hit the auction block.
Drawn by EH Shepard, the sketch of Winnie the Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood is expected to sell for up to £150,000 (or nearly $200,000), according to The Guardian.
The drawing was unseen for nearly half a century but has been sold twice before: in 1968, when it fetched £650 ($865 today), and two years later for £1,700 (over $2,260 today).
Four other illustrations by Shepard will be sold at Sotheby’s English literature, history, science, children’s books and illustrations sale on July 10 in London.
