About this Item: George S. Morang & Co., Limited., Toronto, 1902. Rudyard Kipling (illustrator). 1st Edition. From TBCL's Children's Bookcase. Kipling, Rudyard. JUST SO STORIES FOR LITTLE CHILDREN. Signed. Illustrated by the Author. Toronto: George S. Morang & Co., Limited. 1902. Unique Copy. First Canadian Edition. Sm. 4to. 249p. With 22 plates & many in-text illustrations. Cream cloth covered boards with titles & illustrations on the spine & upper cover stamped in black. An extraordinary example with three key manuscript highlights tipped-in: 1 - Opposite page 141, Kipling on a piece of club size stationery has written out, in fact decoded the runes of Taffimai in 2 columns of 18 lines with the added "This is the identical tusk-on-uitch the tale of Taffimai ouas ritten. Etched by the author. / See Page 141 / Just So Stories / Double Day Page Edn 1902." 2 - Tipped opposite page 197, on a piece of club size stationery, Kipling has deciphered the runes on the Mutton Bone illustrated in the story: The Cat That Walked By Himself. Inscribed: "On the mutton bone / page 197. Just So Stories". Two columns of decoding followed by: " I Rudyard Kipling drew this but because there was no mutton bone in the house I faked the anatomy from memory. R.K." 3 - One page als [true copy neatly written & signed in blue fountain pen] on the letterhead of the Canadian Copper Company, Sussex, dated Nov. 30th 1912, addressed to: David H. Brown esq. " Dear Sir / Many thanks for your amusing letter of the 12th. I am sorry that any of my handicraft should have disturbed your dinner. I should imagine it would be quite hopeless to find one in the small drawing what the runes meant but I have looked up the original pictures and found that on the cross bar of the H, I put myself on record as having also written all the plays ascribed to Mrs. Gallop. I hope now that you and your friends will be able to return to their respective vocations. / Yours very sincerely / Rudyard Kipling". An extremely good example showing light use. [Stewart 261. Notes binding is usually brown/orange cloth]. First published in London, by Macmillan in 1902 this is the uncommon Canadian edition of Kipling's most famous collection of twelve animal stories & twelve poems, including "How the Camel Got His Hump" and "How the Leopard Got His Spots," "How the Whale Got his Throat," "The Elephant's Child," & "The Butterfly That Stamped." "Just So Stories has achieved nursery immortality because a genius has married two of the most tried and trusted media - the fable and the fairy-story" (Muir, 107). Stewart [260]. BMC No.1 [1984]; 'Edwardian Children's Books'. $36000. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 30820

About this Item: Macmillan and Co., Limited, London, 1902. Hardcover. First edition, first printing. This is a compellingly lovely example of the first edition, quite scarce thus in near fine condition. The striking, illustrated binding is beautifully preserved – square, clean, and tight with only light wear to extremities. The contents are clean and bright. We find no previous ownership marks. Modest spotting is confined to the endpapers and there is an expert marginal paper repair to page 39/40. This first issue used "Chinese white pigment" (zinc oxide) on its covers, which had a tendency to flake off. Of particular note, the pigment on this copy remains bright and intact. The binding is protected beneath a removable, clear mylar cover. The first edition features 22 full-page plates of illustrations by Kipling himself, including a map printed in red and black, historiated capital letters for chapter openers, and in-text illustrations. It is the only one of his many books that Kipling illustrated himself. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English poet, short-story writer, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children – of which, of course Just So Stories and The Jungle Books are the par excellence examples. Kipling was in his twenties when his stories of Anglo-Indian life made him a literary celebrity, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907 – the first English language author awarded. He remains the youngest person to be awarded the Prize. Born in India and educated in England, Kipling could not afford to attend either Oxford or Cambridge University and instead returned to India to work as a newspaper editor and writer. Kipling, who had written verse since he was young, also began to write short stories, publishing seven volumes of fiction between the years 1888 and 1889, before the age of 24. He returned to England in 1889, later living in the United States and South Africa before finally settling in England. But it was India that gave Kipling his most enduring literary settings and inspiration. Kipling began publishing some of what would become the Just So Stories in English and American periodicals between 1897 and 1902. It was the son of Kipling’s great friend and American publisher, F. N. Doubleday, who spurred the endeavor to grow into an iconic children’s book. Seven-year-old Nelson Doubleday wrote to his father’s friend: "Dear Mr. Kipling: I have been reading your ‘Just So’ stories in St. Nicholas, and I think they are very good. I wish you would write some more stories like those. I want to know ‘How the Elephant Got His Trunk,’ ‘How the Giraffe Got His Rubber Neck’ and ‘How the Kangaroo Got His Long Legs.’ If you write these stories, please send them over to my father, and if they are good enough he will publish them in a book. I hope you will write them and that he will publish them. Yours truly, Nelson Doubleday" Nelson would eventually become president of Doubleday from 1922 to 1946. The title of the book comes from the December 1897 publication of "How the Whale Got His Throat" in St. Nicholas magazine, where it was noted that this type of story " ‘had to be told just so, without alteration of ‘one single word’" (Richards A181). Though rooted in an Empire sensibility that became archaic even before his death, Kipling’s best tales remain iconic, even elemental examples of the storyteller’s craft. "There has yet been no writer of short stories in English to challenge his achievement, which ranges through space from India to the home counties, and through time from Stone Age man to the contemporary world of football matches and motor cars. These stories, moreover, exhibit every kind of treatment, from the farcical to the tragic, and their structures vary from the simplest anecdote to the most complex and allusive philosophical fiction, dense enough to support endless exegesis and commentary." (ODNB) Bibliographic reference: Richards A181. Seller Inventory # 003507

About this Item: 1902. Illustrated by the Author. London: Macmillan and Co., 1902. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in black and white. First Edition of Kipling's famous collection of twelve tales (with poems), such as "How the Camel got his Hump," "How the Leopard got his Spots" and "How the Alphabet was Made." Kipling himself did the 22 full-page illustrations.~As Stewart points out, the covers of the earliest copies bound were decorated with a white pigment that readily flaked off; subsequent copies bound used a new ink that adhered properly. This is therefore one of the few instances in which collectors do not prefer the earliest state -- as such copies are identifiable only by the loss of much of the pictorial cover design. In any event, on this copy the white pigment has adhered properly over the years.~This is a handsome copy, fine except for a little fading of the spine and adjacent inch of the rear cover, and a touch of foxing on the endpapers only. Richards A181; Stewart 260. Seller Inventory # 12011

About this Item: Folio Press London, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Limited Edition. PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS EXCEPTIONALLY HEAVY AND OUTSIZED. I HAVE TO CHARGE POSTAGE ON THIS BOOK. This is the most elaborate of these special limited editions. Every detail has been carefully considered and created using the finest materials. Each volume is quarter-bound in vellum, the spine blocked in 22-carat gold. The binding vividly depicts the Leopard in four different metallic foils. Altogether we used six different paper types and worked with five printing houses, each with expertise in specific media and techniques. As you will see from the enclosed brochure, each copy also features a hand-printed etching of the Painted Jaguar, hand-numbered and signed by the artist. It has been tipped in by hand and set within a decorative gold border, with the adjacent page printed letterpress to achieve a harmonious typographic arrangement. It was important to us to find an introducer who had a strong personal connection with the stories – someone who would reflect the nostalgia that so many people, myself included, feel for them. Former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo expresses these sentiments beautifully in his introduction, with his abiding memories of hearing the book read aloud by his mother. Morpurgo has also said that without this experience, he would never have become a children’s writer himself – and anyone who has loved War Horse, Private Peaceful or any of Morpurgo’s many stories, knows how great a loss that would have been.
