What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

First published in 1906, this is a collection of short stories set in various times during English history, with depictions of magic bringing a fantastic element to the tales. Most renowned for 'The Jungle Book', 'Kim' and 'Just so Stories', Rudyard Kipling is seen as a pioneer for the short story form and a classic author of children's fiction. He was born in India, the inspiration behind a vast amount of his writings.

This is a first edition.

Illustrated with full plate illustrations throughout as well as a frontispiece.

From the library of Frank David Higham, an author who along with David Higham, wrote a great deal of literature, poetry and drama, as well as founding David Higham Associates, a literary agency remembered in particular for championing children's literature, having championed the works of authors such as Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl.
