The Years Between.
London: Macmillan and Co. 1919. - FIRST EDITION. Crown octavo, pp.xiv; 159; [1], imprint; [32], advertisements dated 2/19. Original red cloth, gilt, in illustrated dust-wrapper priced at 7/6. Some light wear only to spine and extremities else a fine copy. The title refers to the period between the South African War and the Armistice in 1918. Comprised of forty-five poems and a series of epitaphs, this is consided by Kipling scholars as some of his darkest work. Includes 'For All We Have and Are', The Irish Guards', The Spies' March' and 'My Boy Jack', a moving tribute to his fallen son John, a commissioned officer killed in action at the Battle of Loos, 1915. His death inspired his father to write a wartime history of the Irish Guards Regiment and led to Rudyard Kipling's association with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission; there is still some debate over the exact location of John Kipling's resting place.
