The Jungle Book. Together with The Second Jungle Book.
London: Macmillan and Co., 1894 and 1895., 1894. SET OF TWO VOLUMES IN FIRST EDITION. Illustrated by J.L. Kipling, W.H. Drake, and P. Frenzeny. A stunning set, elegantly hand-bound in full dark blue morocco, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, gilt border to covers, dark blue endpapers, all edges gilt, publisher's original cloth bound in at rear. Some light spotting within; externally fine. Overall, an excellent pair in attractive recent leather bindings. The Jungle Book and its sequel comprise a selection of short stories – the best-known being the three tales centring on the adventures of the abandoned 'man cub', Mowgli. Other popular tales from Kipling's work include 'Rikki-Tikki-Tavi', the story of a heroic mongoose, and 'Toomai of the Elephants', the tale of a young elephant-handler Stewart [123, 132]
