Kipling, Rudyard
The Drums of The Fore and Aft.
F. Tennyson Neely, London, 1899. First Neely's Booklet Library edition of Kipling's classic military tale. Octavo, original wrappers as issued, frontispiece portrait of Kipling. In very good condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare. English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist Rudyard Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the British Empire, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1907. Kipling's The Drums of the Fore and Aft concerns an inexperienced Regular battalion on overseas service brigaded with a Highland Regiment and a Gurkha Regiment in Afghanistan. Unlike Kipling's other tales, it concerns the disgrace of a battle almost lost rather than the glory of a battle won. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
