POEMS 1886-1929
London: [Printed at the Chiswick Press for] Macmillan & Co., Ltd, 1929. No. 145 OF 525 SIGNED COPIES. This beautifully produced set, printed on handmade paper and tastefully bound, collects all of the Nobel Laureate's poetry, including not only those from previously published volumes of verse, but also poems that appeared in Kipling's novels, and those that were contributed to magazines or newspapers. Though better known for his stories of adventure, Kipling was a most accomplished poet. After praising the brilliance of his fiction, DNB concludes, "what may be said of his prose work may apply even more strongly to his poetry, whose extraordinary variety of form and content is only now beginning to be appreciated. Among modern writers in English, only Thomas Hardy can be compared to Kipling for high achievement in both poetry and prose." This set is mostly unread: only the first 56 pages of the first volume have been opened.. 275 x 195 mm. (10 3/4 x 7 3/4"). Three volumes. No. 145 OF 525 SIGNED COPIES. Publisher's deluxe burgundy morocco, raised bands, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed and ALMOST ENTIRELY UNOPENED. Volume I with frontispiece portrait in dry point by Francis Dodd (signed by the artist in pencil). Stewart 574. Spines uniformly faded to light brown, a few trifling marks to the leather, but A VERY FINE SET, PRISTINE INTERNALLY.
