Book Description Greenwich House, New York, 1983. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good-. Dust Jacket Condition: Good-. J. Lockwood Kipling. (illustrator). Reprint. 326 pp, 8 3/16" H. B &w illustrations. Originally printed in 1894. "At the turn of the (20th) century, Flora Annie Steel traveled through India, and spending countless hours, listened to the village storytellers and gathered their tales together into this brilliant and definitive collection, sifting and carefully selecting the most vivid stories in their best form, but not doctoring them in any way, not even in the language. She preserved the rough, ready wit, their drama, poetry, and humanity. In addition, J. Lockwood Kipling (Rudyard Kipling's father) designed a host of ingenious and charming illustrations to accompany them, full of the flavor of India. And R.C. Temple prepared notes that give a thorough background for the tales and define certain unfamiliar words. Here are tales of wizards and princes, of serpents and talking beasts, of enchantments, temporary deaths, and restoration of lost limbs. But underneath it all, we recognize the universal evils and timeless values of mankind: jealousy is a constant motive and reason for deadly assault, but beauty, truth, and honor conquer evil in the end. In these stories, the devotee of folklore will find a wealth of material to dissect; the parent, a wealth of bedtime stories; and all readers will find entertainment as delightful and exciting as any by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, or Aesop, but with its own unique Indian character and setting." Light to moderate edge wear, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, some areas of light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has chips, tears (archivally taped) and creases - mainly at top edge, light edge wear elsewhere, minor edge browning, soft wrinkles on front panel, protected in mylar sleeve.
