The Jungle Book (First Edition, Second Reprint)

£100.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

There is no harm in a man's cub.'

Best known for the 'Mowgli' stories, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book expertly interweaves myth, morals, adventure and powerful story-telling. Set in Central India, Mowgli is raised by a pack of wolves. Along the way he encounters memorable characters such as the foreboding tiger Shere Kahn, Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear. Including other stories such as that of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, a heroic mongoose and Toomai, a young elephant handler, Kipling's fables remain as popular today as they ever were.

The Jungle Book was published in magazines in 1893 and 1894; however, it was first published in book format by Macmillan and Company in London in 1894. This first edition has blue cloth binding with gilt edges, titles, and pictures on the spine and front board. It was originally sold as a set with the Second Jungle Book, but is still a beautiful edition to a collection, with illustrations by Kipling, W. H. Drake and P. Frenzeny.

Hardback book in very good condition with wear commensurate with it's age. There is an owners' inscription to both the front free-end paper and the second page (not title page). There is also some skewing of the spine which has resulted in the front end paper becoming torn. The pages are
clean however, though some are a little loose, but it is still a readable, and delightful, copy.

This is the First Edition, reprinted in June 1894, and is only the Jungle Book, not the second book set.
