About this Item

The first colour illustrated edition, early reissue of the first edition with the Detmolds’ illustrations. With 16 superb illustrations in color by Maurice & Edward Detmold. Small 4to, publisher’s bright red cloth lettered in gilt on spine, the upper cover gilt-lettered and pictorially gilt-decorated featuring Riki Tiki Tavi, t.e.g. xii, 314, [2 ads] pp. A very handsome copy, the text and cloth both bright and fresh, just a bit of very minor expected age mellowing. ONE OF THE MOST DESIRABLE EDITONS OF KIPLING'S FAMED JUNGLE BOOK, With illustrations by both Edward and Maurice Detmold. To this day, these illustrations are treasured for their power and sensitivity. They are evocative of an age gone by but represent some of the finest work created during the new renaissance of English book illustration at the turn of the century. Copies are now quite elusive. The Jungle Book represents a collection of Kipling’s best loved stories for children. The first stories are built around the premise of a human child lost in the jungles and raised by wild animals. Among the noted characters are Mowgli the child, Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear. The beloved tale of Riki Tiki Tavi is also among these enchanting stories. Bookseller Inventory # 27552
