W.M. Carpenter
Kipling's College - W.M. Carpenter Rudyard Kipling Jungle Book - EXTREMELY RARE
Evanston, Indiana: W.M. Carpenter, 1929. This is an extremely rare copy of 'Kipling's College', a collection of letters, notes, drawings and photographs by Rudyard Kipling, and his time at United Services College. The book was commissioned in 1929 by W. M. Carpenter, a Kipling collector himself, and he had only 100 copies made. Other book resource websites state that of the 100 copies, most of the known ones are in private and institutions of higher learning collections. It does not appear that the copies themselves are numbered, but we have photographed several pages, including the statement of 100 copies page. We have had this book in our possession for a couple of years, and followed it's availability during that time. We have seen only 2 others become available in that period, truly showing the rarity of the book itself. If you are Kipling enthusiast, this would certainly be a unique addition to your collection. The slipcover is in fair condition, as well as the wax paper dust jacket. The book itself is in very good shape, with all pages present. Some pages do appear rough on the edges, but the two other copies we mentioned above that we've seen also appear this way. If you require further photographs, please do not hesitate to ask. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
