Kipling Rudyard
New York The Century Co. 1895. First Edition, American Issue, same year as the English first. Illustrated throughout with decorations by John Lockwood Kipling. 8vo, publisher's original cloth, the spine panel and upper cover lettered in gilt and pictorially decorated in black, t.e.g. [x], 324 pp. A very handsome and pleasing copy, the gilt bright and well preserved, the black pictorial decorations also in pleasing condition. A HANDSOME COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION PUBLISHED IN AMERICA, THE SAME YEAR AS THE ENGLISH FIRST EDITION. These stories, of Mowgli, a human child lost in the jungles of India and raised by wild animals, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the white seal, Baloo and others struck a cord with readers who were able to find these exotic animals and people easy to relate to despite the bizarre circumstances and far off locales. They are arguably the best loved of Kipling’s many delightful works for children and a true classic of its genre. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Buddenbrooks, Inc. [Newburyport, MA, U.S.A.]
