About this Item

Red cloth with black lettering and spine decoration. A lovely copy. Text is clean and bright, no marks. Tanned. DJ shows rubbing to all edges, two short closed tears to front cover, small rectangular loss to top edge of spine, minor scuffing. "Here are rollicking stories-in-verse like "The Ballad of East and West" that begins "Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet-" and here is "Gunga Din", the immortal poem about the "squidgy nosed old idol", with its magnificent ending: "Though I've belted you and flayed you, By the living Gawd that made you, You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!" Here is Fuzzy-Wuzzy, the "pore benighted heathen but a first-class fighting man," whose story is told in lines that crackle with musket fire and are acrid with the smell of powder. Also "Danny Deever", "The Road to Mandalay," and many others. Bookseller Inventory # A92214
