London: Macmillan & Co.,, 1913-38. Rare complete as thus 31 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by Asprey in blue half morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, raised bands, blue cloth boards, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Mild browning to the signed half-title else an excellent set. The Bombay Edition, one of only 500 possible complete sets signed by the author on the half-title of Volume I. The Bombay edition was initially published in 20 volumes and limited to 1,000 copies. Kipling continued to write and the edition eventually grew to 31 volumes, but the last 11 volumes were limited to 500 copies only. Because later volumes were issued separately and at a lower limitation, complete sets such as this one are rare.
