1900 From Sea to Sea and Other Sketches Volume II
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding
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. This is volume II only of the original two volume work, detailing Kipling's 1889 travels in the United States. Featuring a gilt stamped Kipling emblem of an elephant carrying a lotus flower and a small swastika to the front board. This emblem was designed in order to reflect the influence of Indian culture on Kipling's work. Once the Nazis came to power and usurped the swastika, Kipling ordered that it should no longer adorn his books. With publisher's advertisements to the rear of the text.
In the publisher's original cloth binding, with gilt stamped design to front board and title to spine. Externally generally smart, with slight bumping to extremities and head and tail of spine. Slight fading to spine, as expected with this colour binding. The odd mark to boards. Slight offsetting and the odd light scattered spot to endpapers. Internally firmly bound. Pages slightly age toned to extremities but very bright and clean throughout. Slight handling mark to page 1.
