Item Description: Macmillan and Co Ltd, London, 1937. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition, Limited Edition. The most important and most sought-after edition of Kipling's Works. Contains much material not previously published contained in two volumes, plus many additional pieces spread between the other 33 volumes. The last and most complete edition of Kipling's Works, revised and signed by him before his death on 18 January 1936. A large number of copies of this edition were destroyed in the Blitz. 35 vols, royal 8vo, printed on handmade paper, with first sheet of each signature bearing the author's Ganesha watermark; bound in full tanned Niger leather a natural orange-brown in colour, with double gold frame rules on each cover, with lettering and rules in gold on the spines, and with gilded top edges of the leaves. The endpapers are hand-brushed marbled paper, surrounded by gold and blind fillets. This is set 177 and is in virtually perfect condition. Macmillan described it as: "Planned some years before the author's death, and designed to rank as the definitive edition of all his works in prose and verse, in the most complete and handsome form. Kipling had undertaken a detailed revision of the text for this purpose, and had autographed and numbered the first volume of each set. He left behind him careful instructions regarding the unpublished or uncollected writings which are so conspicuous and so interesting a feature of the Sussex Edition. This material includes over sixty stories, articles and speeches, besides such groups of papers as The War in the Mountains, Eyes of Asia, and Brazilian Sketches, none of them previously published in book form, if at all, in this country, and the whole of his early or uncollected verse." Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known." In 1907, Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He was the first English-language writer to receive the Prize. He remains the youngest. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 00012

Item Description: London: Macmillan and Company, 1937., 1937. The Best and Rarest Edition of the Works of Rudyard Kipling One of the Signed Sets that Escaped the Blitz of LondonKIPLING, Rudyard. The Sussex Edition of the Complete Works in Prose and Verse of Rudyard Kipling. London: Published by Macmillan and Company, 1937-1939. One of 500 sets signed by Rudyard Kipling (this being No. 219) and printed on hand-made paper. Complete in thirty-five royal octavo volumes (9 1/2 x 6 5/8 inches; 241 x 163 mm.). Half-titles printed in rust. The first sheet of each signature bears Kipling’s familiar Ganesha watermark. Publisher’s full niger morocco, covers double-ruled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt on the rough, all others uncut. Minimal and uniform fading to spines, otherwise a very fine set. "During the last years of his life, Kipling was engaged in a complete revision of his works, and the text of the Sussex edition represents his final revised text. Two volumes of uncollected prose and much verse are here collected for the first time. This de luxe, signed edition was published after the author’s death by Macmillan & Co. and is limited to 525 sets of which 500 are for sale. Unfortunately, a substantial portion of the edition was destroyed in unbound sheets during the bombing of London in 1941." (Stewart. Rudyard Kipling a Bibliographical Catalogue, Toronto, 1959, p. 577.) The Sussex Edition was envisioned by his long-time publisher Macmillan as a monument to Kipling.Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He wrote tales and poems of British soldiers in India and stories for children. He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".Rudyard Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known." In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. Among other honors, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he declined. Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him continued for much of the 20th century. George Orwell called him a "prophet of British imperialism".Literary critic Douglas Kerr wrote: "He [Kipling] is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognized as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with."Stewart, p. 577. I. Bookseller Inventory # 03405

Item Description: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1914. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. The Seven Seas edition. (1914-1926) One of 1050 sets (this being #885) 27 volumes - the first volume of each set was signed by Kipling. The set was issued by Doubleday, as the American version of the Bombay set. Bound in dark green calf half morocco and cloth. Raised bands, gilt decoration in the compartments, top edge gilt by MacDonald. This set was originally bound in "grey boards with canvas backstrip, white paper labels affixed to the spine.". They were all rebound. The last four volumes were published one at a time, therefore were bound individually. The morocco is the same, but the cloth varies slightly. The first 23 volumes are uniformly faded brown (as is common with green leather), while the last 4 are faded less - with virually no fading on the final volume. There is some light rubbing, but this is a fine, attractive set, Bookseller Inventory # 000029
