What Our Customers Say...

Description

Fine Binding, First Edition, Leather Binding

The first edition, second impression, of this work, published the month after the first impression.

In a smart half calf fine binding.

A collection of short stories set in boarding schools, looking at the lives of the adolescent boys living at the schools, and their juvenile adventures. They were less childish than other school tales, with elements of bullying, violence, and revenge.

Rudyard Kipling is best known for his novel 'The Jungle Book', however he was a prolific writer of poems, novels, and short stories. Being born in India inspired much of his work, and he went on to become one of the most popular writers of his time. 

Bound without the publisher's adverts to the rear.

Bookplate of F. G. L. Whiteaway to the front pastedown.

Condition
