Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known. In 1907 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and to date he remains its youngest recipient. Among other honours, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he declined. The Bombay edition was initially published in 20 volumes and limited to 1000 copies. Kipling continued to write and it eventually grew to 31 volumes, but the last 11 volumes were limited to 500 copies only. This collection is twenty-two volumes of the original twenty five limited to 1050. With water marks to the endpapers. Condition: In original publishers' half cloth bindings with paper covered boards. Externally, all volumes are generally sound, with only some light rubbing and scattered marks. Spine label is slightly lifting to volume one and thirteen. Warping to the boards of volume sixteen, and light damp staining to the tail of volume twenty-two's spine. Very light straining to the front hinge of volume one, three, four, seven,ten, and eleven. As well as straining to the rearhinge of volume four, seven, ten, and eleven. Front hinge to volume thirteen is tender. Internally, all volumes are generally firmly bound and bright. Somefoxing to the endpapers and textblock edge. Many leaves are uncut. Overall: VERY GOOD..
