London, Macmillan and Co., 1894 & 1895. 2 volumes, in the original dark blue cloth bindings with gilt pictorial centrepieces (elephants and snake respectively) to front boards and gilt lettering and illustrations to spines. All edges gilt. Vol. 1 with wear to capitals, corners a bit bumped and a few minor spots to front board. Sewing bands loosening at inner front hinge between frontispiece and title-page (no leaves loose) and inner front hinge a little weak. Text nice and clean. Vol. 2 with light wear to capitals and a few "bubbles" to front board. Text nice and clean. Book plate of John W.G. Bond to inside front boards and a more recent ex libris of Michelle de Luxor (1976) to front free end-papers as well as her owner's inscription to first blanks, dated 1975, above that of Bond, dated 1894 and 1895 respectively. The first edition of these two classics, which arguably constitute Kipling's main work.
