Item Description: Macmillan, London, 1895. Hardcover. Book Condition: About Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. John Lockwood Kipling, C.I.E. (illustrator). First U.K. Edition, First Printing. Publisher's blue cloth with title and decorations stamped in gilt onto upper board and spine, 12mo (7-1/4 inches tall), all edges gilt, colored endpapers, illustrated throughout with jungle theme line drawings. Volume with spine ends softened and a tiny bump to the foot of the lower board near spine, contemporary gift inscription in ink "Jack. ." at head of the contents page, two small ink dots near top edge of title page. Gilt is bright and text is clean, lacking the foxing commonly found. DJ is worn and soiled with tears and chipping, especially at spine ends and top edge, some splatters to upper spine panel and tape repairs verso. The front panel has "Jack" written in a juvenile hand multiple times in pencil and is partially erased. An interesting coincidence that Kipling's son was John "Jack" Kipling. The bookmark has minor creases and fading to the head, else fine. An intact and robust survivor of one of Kipling's most enduring works, destined to be "King of the Jungle" in any early jacket or Kipling collection. ". .There are thousands that do write; there are dozens that can write; but there is only one Rudyard Kipling." Rudyard Kipling - An Attempt at Appreciation, Monkshood, G. F. (pseud. W. J. Clarke), 1899. The 1895 Macmillan edition of The Second Jungle Book is a relative rarity when found complete in it's original century old dust jacket. It was the first illustrated Kipling UK dust jacket issued and is found in only a handful of institutions. Auction house records document the presence of a jacket (in various states of completeness - 1964, '73, '92 & '97) just four times. This jacketed copy also has the publisher's circular "PRESENTATION COPY" blind stamp on the title page and was thus reserved for a patron, friend or colleague. Found within, is a publisher's bookmark, with the printed date of "10.9.95" at it's foot. Macmillan's own records, held in the British Library, show "12 November 1895" (Richards, A85) as the official publication date of the first UK edition of The Second Jungle Book - following by just three days the publication of The Century Co.'s first US edition. The bookmark has "Works by Rudyard Kipling" printed at it's head, and shows The Second Jungle Book as being available prior to either of the known US or UK publication dates, at a price of "6s". Cutler & Styles, in "Modern British Authors: Their First Editions" (1930) show the London edition of The Second Jungle Book as being the first, rather than the US edition. An unusual and evocative piece of advertising ephemera, showing an earlier selection of works by Rudyard Kipling, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Ref. Richards, A85; Cutler & Styles p. 81. Bookseller Inventory # 1355

A lovely near fine or better copy, all edges gilt WITH The Second Jungle Book bound in gilt ruled & titled half red calf & linen, five raised bands, covers bound in at the rear. A fine excellent example. "This most desirable pair will always fill an honorable place in any library of children's books" (Quayle 87). Richards A76 & A85; Stewart 123 & 132. Livingston 104, 116. A lovely mixed set of one of the cornerstone titles in children's literature & Kipling highlight & along with Just So Stories, his most beloved work. Custom red & blue leather slipcase. First published in magazine format in 1893-4. British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling was born in India lived there & in England & wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The tales are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families & communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics & society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear & Bagheera the black panther, & then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, & "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. "The White Seal", in which the main character seeks a haven for his people where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, & succeeded by another. $2475. Bookseller Inventory # 30819

Item Description: Macmillan, London, 1895. Book Condition: Near Fine. First editions. A lovely, Near Fine set of Kipling's most beloved work. The first book is clean and bright with minor wear to spine ends, rear hinge invisibly repaired and a bookseller's description tipped in on the first blank (Walter M. Hill, 1935). The second book with the spine gilt a bit dulled and a bookplate on the front paste-down. Final leaf is two page advertisements for other works by Macmillan. Both books a trifle cocked. Based on folk tales and legends that Kipling learned during his childhood in India and written while in Vermont. This work of several inter-related short stories met with huge success upon publication and continues to enthrall readers of all ages to this day. According to Professor Edwin L. Miller, their publication "caused even severe critics of his previous work to admit that he is a writer of inspired genius." Kipling was the first English-language writer, and the youngest ever, to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 879
