Just So Stories For Little Children.
London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1902. With illustrations by the author. Large octavo. Original red pictorial cloth, titles to front board and spine in black and white. With 22 plates by the author. Gift inscription to first blank. Tips a little bumped, some light rubbing to spine ends, a little foxing to endpapers. An excellent, remarkably bright, copy. First edition, first impression, in the second issue binding, of Kipling's famous collection of 12 stories and 12 poems including "How the Camel Got His Hump" and "How the Leopard Got His Spots." The white blocking to the spine and boards famously failed to adhere on the first issue binding, with the result that most copies now lack significant portions of it; the paint formula was changed for the second issue.
      [Bookseller: Peter Harrington]
