About this Item

32 pp. 12mo. In 1908, Kipling was invited to distribute prizes at the opening session of the Middlesex Hospital Medical School. This address, while reprinted in "The Ladies' Home Journal," January, 1909, has never been collected in Kipling's Works. The preface consists of a brief history of Middlesex Hospital (founded 1745) and its Medical School (founded in 1835). There follows, as transition, the poem by Oliver Wendell Holmes "The Two Armies." Kipling, who suffered from depression and other illnesses, saw Life as a long fight for Time and saw Doctors as one of the major defenses of the patient in that war. Bookplate, on verso of front cover, of James Ramsay Hunt (1874Ð1937), a prominent neurologist. Inscription to Hunt on front free end paper from Beatrice Hickson (posssibly A. Beatrice Hickson, the illustrious World War I female poet). Soiled. Else, Good+. Martindell, #88. Livingston, #312. Limp red cloth with black lettering and swastika device on front cover.
