About this Item: Doubleday, Page & Company, Garden City, NY, 1922. First edition, later printing of what many consider Kipling's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth, embossed black and gilt to the front panel, gilt titles to the spine, illustrated. Signed by Rudyard Kipling on the title page. In near fine condition with light rubbing to the extremities. Kim unfolds against the backdrop of The Great Game, the political conflict between Russia and Britain in Central Asia. The novel made the term "Great Game" popular and introduced the theme of great power rivalry and intrigue. It is set after the Second Afghan War which ended in 1881, but before the Third, probably in the period 1893 to 1898. The novel is notable for its detailed portrait of the people, culture, and varied religions of India. "The book presents a vivid picture of India, its teeming populations, religions, and superstitions, and the life of the bazaars and the road." Considered by many to be Kipling's masterpiece, opinion appears varied about its consideration as children's literature or not. Roger Sale, in his history of children's literature, concludes "Kim is the apotheosis of the Victorian cult of childhood, but it shines now as bright as ever, long after the Empire's collapse." Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003 the book was listed on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel.".

Bound in full, dark green morocco leather (the spines have faded to light brown), with the author's name and title and illustrator's name gilt on the spine, with one or two white dots on each spine for the volume numbers, the front and back covers of each volume feature a circular, concentric design, which is formed of two cut out, leather-covered forms which are mounted in a circular cut out well, lined with a white plastic material. The circular cut out forms display the title: KIM in gilt letters and gilt dots, the central form bears a gilt sunburst type design formed of small dots, around a larger gilt dot, these are repeated in each corner of the front and back covers, the mounted title form on the back covers does not display the lettered word Kim, but does have the sunburst design on the central form; multicolored, sewn headbands; inner leather turn-ins with green slik endpapers, and green, brown and gold marbled flyleaves. The binding is unsigned, but possibly designed by Schmied, who also used Crette and Dunand to design and execute bindings for his books; the design also seems to echo some of Paul Bonet's early work, in the use of the circular forms with lettering. The spines show fading, some rubbing to the leather surfaces of the spines, spine ends, outer hinges. In dark green & gold-flecked paper-covered slipcases, with brown morocco leather facings. The slipcase for volume one, shows splitting, which has been covered with green cloth tape, at some point to reinforce the edges. Weight: 15 lbs. Postage is extra on this item.
