KIPLING, Rudyard:
London: Macmillan and Co. 1902. First edition, first printing [first issue]. First edition, first printing [first issue]. Original red cloth with black and white titles and illustrations to the upper board and spine. Illustrated in black and white throughout by the author. Housed in a modern collector's solander case. An excellent better than very good copy, the binding square and firm and the cloth bright. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages. There is a small previous owner's inscription (dated 1902) to the front endpaper, otherwise the pages are clean and bright throughout. A lovely example of a classic of children's literature. In the first / earliest state binding, the spine lettering having flaked off - "The white pigment used on the covers of the first edition flaked off and a new ink was used for subsequent issues" [Stewart 260]. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.
