1888 Under the Deodars
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce
Most renowned for 'The Jungle Book', 'Kim' and 'Just so Stories', Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) 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, which include 'The Jungle Book', 'Just So Stories' and 'Kim'.
'Under the Deodars' is a short story collection, featuring six stories. This edition was first published for the Indian Railway Library in Allahabad and London. The Indian Railway Library was a series of pamphlets intended to offer cheap 'throwaway' reading material for travellers, and began as an idea of Kipling's to fund his return to England. 'Under the Deodars' was his fourth release of six for the Library.
