What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

First Edition. 

Illustrations include a colour frontispiece and thirty-two illustrated plates by H. R. Millar and Charles E. Brock. 

This is a wonderful collection of short stories by Rudyard Kipling, narrated by children as well as the elf Puck. Many of these stories were originally published in 'Puck of Pook's Hill', the popular fantasy book which was published in 1905. These stories include fantasy and historical elements, with occasional meditations on magic and nature.

These work contains stories such as 'Weland's Sword', 'The Knights of the Joyous Venture', and 'The Winged Hats', with poetic verses at the beginning of each story. Verses include 'A Tree Song', 'Cities and Thrones and Powers', and ''Prophets have honour all over the Earth''. 

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, and poet. His upbringing in British India inspired much of his work, including popular novels such as 'The Jungle Book'.
