Description:
1851. [his first and scarcest novel] Reprinted, with corrections and additions, from Fraser's Magazine. London: John W. Parker, 1851. 8 pp undated ads. Original blind-stamped rose-brown wavy-grain cloth. First Edition of Charles Kingsley's first-written (and today his scarcest) novel. It first appeared serially in Fraser's Magazine during the latter half of 1848 (the year of the "last great burst" of Chartism), but was not published in book form until 1851, as here -- "with corrections and additions"; in the meantime his second novel, ALTON LOCKE, was published slightly earlier, in 1850. YEAST... is more of a tract than a novel, in which Kingsley described rural England in the time of the Chartist agitation. The plot describes the fate of Lancelot Smith, a wealthy young man, who changes his religious and social views under the inflence of Tregarva, a philosophical game-keeper, who acquaints Smith with the social, economic and moral conditions of the rural poor... Although poorly plotted, YEAST… Read more

Description:
1899. New York: Doubleday & McClure Company, 1899. Original blind-stamped sea green cloth. First Edition (the English edition is dated 1900). These volumes include the first authorized edition of "American Notes," "Letters of Marque," "The City of Dreadful Night" and "The Smith Administration"; according to Kipling's Preface he was "forced" to issue this title "by the enterprise of various publishers" who were pirating and embellishing his earlier works. The half-title versos bear Kipling's usual icon from India, the swastika -- which until the 1930s signified peace and continuity. This is a near-fine set, with just a touch of rubbing. Richards A131; Stewart 198.

Description:
1906. [with 1906 dust jacket] London: Macmillan and Co., 1906. 4 pp ads dated "15.8.06". Original red cloth with Ganesha device (elephant-and-swastika) in gilt, with dust jacket. First (English) Edition, published on the same day as the American. This is Kipling's version, in prose and verse, of the adventures of the mischievous sprite Robin Goodfellow (later continued in REWARDS AND FAIRIES). Though the American edition has four Arthur Rackham plates, this English one has 20 attractive illustrations by Harold R. Millar. The swastika (Indian symbol for peace and continuity) appears both on the front cover and on the half-title verso -- once clockwise and once counter-clockwise. This is a fine, bright copy -- with, atypically, no erosion of the gilt on the front cover medallion... because this copy has the very uncommon dust jacket. The list of Kipling titles on the jacket's rear panel is led by TRAFFICS AND DISCOVERIES, "Thirty-second Thousand" -- which is the proper title at the top of the… Read more

Description:
1899. [the Publisher to Major Pond] Toronto: George N. Morang & Co., 1899. Original dark green cloth with Viking longboat design in black. First Canadian Edition -- technically, the Canadian issue of the first American edition, which was published in this binding by Doubleday & McClure ten days before Macmillan's UK edition. These nine hilarious tales of school life (of the mischievous Stalky, Beetle and McTurk) are based on Kipling's own days at the United Services College. Included are eight illustrations by L. Raven Hill, which are not in the UK edition. American sheets were bound up with a Morang title leaf, and the binding was altered only to read "MORANG" at the foot of the spine (some Canadian copies were put up in red wrappers). One little oddity of this Canadian edition is that Kipling's prefatory poem here follows the Contents and Illustrations leaves, whereas in the American edition (and in the UK edition), the poem precedes those leaves. This is a bright copy, fine except for very… Read more

Description:
1890. New York: United States Book Company. Successors to John W. Lovell Company, n.d. [1890]. Original maroon cloth, on beveled boards. First (though pirated) Edition of both the "Barrack-Room Ballads" and the "Other Verses" (not published in England until 1892); first American edition of "Departmental Ditties." The "Barrack-Room Ballads" include some of Kipling's best-loved verse, such as "Gunga Din," "Danny Deever," "Tommy," "Mandalay" and "Fuzzy-Wuzzy." This copy is in the first binding state, with "Lovell" at the foot of the spine (even though Lovell had been "succeeded" by United States Book Company). The volume is in very good-plus, perhaps near-fine condition (spine gilt less than bright, very light wear at the foot of the spine); the spine is not faded, which is atypical for maroon cloth. Richards A48; Stewart 79.

Description:
1900. One page on plain paper, with the typed heading "THE ELMS | Rottingdean: Sussex | Oct. 24: 1900". The text of this letter reads: Dear Mr. Hodgson:-- In reply to yours of the 23rd, I do not know whether at present I have anything by me that would suit the Anglo-Saxon Review, but I sent the other day two stories to Mr. A.P. Watt, Hastings House, Norfolk Street, Strand, who manages my business, and it is possible that one or other of them may be suitable for your review. Very sincerely yours, [signed in ink] Rudyard Kipling The Anglo-Saxon Review was a short-lived "quarterly miscellany," created and edited by Lady Randolph Churchill (her son Winston served as an advisor), published by John Lane in handsome leatherbound volumes with elaborate gilt tooling. Contributors included Henry James, Winston Churchill, George Gissing, and Stephen Crane (but apparently not Rudyard Kipling -- though he was "reviewed" on pp 244-245 of the first number).

Description:
1891. Authorized Edition. New York: Lovell, Coryell & Company, n.d. [1892]. Original maroon cloth, beveled. First Combined Edition, later issue (with Lovell Coryell, rather than United States Book Co., as the publisher). These two pieces first appeared in 1888 as the second and fourth numbers in the Indian Railway Series, Allahabad; John Lovell issued each in wrappers in 1890 in his "Westminster Series," before combining the two in the present volume (U.S. Book Co. in 1891, Lovell Coryell in 1892). This would be a fine copy were it not for the slight fading of the maroon spine -- almost unavoidable for this color. See Richards A42 note; Stewart 50. This is the George Barr McCutcheon copy, with his bookplate, housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

Description:
1895. Kipling, J. Lockwood. With Illustrations by J. Lockwood Kipling, C.I.E. London: Macmillan and Co., 1895. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First English Edition (published three days after the American) of the sequel to THE JUNGLE BOOK, which had been published the year before. It continues with more tales of Mowgli that exemplify "The Laws of the Jungle" -- with illustrations by John Lockwood Kipling, Rudyard's father. This was the second of the four Kipling gift books bound similarly by Macmillan, with SOLDIER TALES and CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS coming out the following two years respectively. This is an attractive, near-fine copy (volume slightly askew, spine gilt less than bright, but no foxing and essentially no wear); the front flyleaf bears an inked "Xmas 1895" signature. Richards A85; Stewart 132.

Description:
1897. A Story of the Grand Banks. With Illustrations by I.W. Taber. London: Macmillan and Co., 1897. 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First English Edition, published about a month after the American. This is Kipling's great novel about the cod fishing fleet of Gloucester Massachusetts, written while the newlywed Kiplings lived in Vermont. Kipling freely acknowledged that the book owed much to Dr. James Conland of Brattleboro, who brought the Kiplings' elder daughter into the world -- for Conland had been a member of the Massachusetts fishing fleet, and it was he who took Kipling to explore the wharves and quays of Boston and Gloucester. (The American edition, in fact, is dedicated to Conland; this English edition bears no dedication.) This is the only book of Kipling's which is set entirely in America. All the characters are American. Not only that, but the heart of the book -- its moral in a single sentence -- is one of Kipling's… Read more

Description:
1891. Allahabad: A.H. Wheeler & Co., 1891. 4 preliminary + 5 pp undated ads. Original diagonally-divided red and blue cloth. First (Suppressed) Edition. A.H. Wheeler, publisher of the "Indian Railway Series," had been Kipling's authorized publisher in India. However, after Kipling left India for England, Wheeler promptly prepared for publication three more collections of Kipling pieces, without authority: THE CITY OF DREADFUL NIGHT AND OTHER SKETCHES, THE SMITH ADMINISTRATION and LETTERS OF MARQUE. Kipling insisted that all three editions be entirely destroyed, and today there is only one known copy of the first title and only six known copies of the second title. But LETTERS OF MARQUE does turn up: although it was estimated that only about 100 (out of 1,000 printed) copies escaped destruction, the book today does not seem to be that scarce. This copy, as with most known copies, has a Wheeler price stamp on the front free endpaper, plus a stamp showing this copy's date of dispatch from the… Read more

1892. New York: Macmillan and Co., 1892. 8 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth with front cover vignette in gilt. First (American) Edition, published nine days before the English edition which was titled BARRACK-ROOM BALLADS and Other Verses. Included in "Barrack-Room Ballads" are such well-known verses as "Danny Deever," "Tommy," "Fuzzy-Wuzzy," "Gunga Din" and "Mandalay"; these had appeared in the 1890 pirated volume DEPARTMENTAL DITTIES... published by New York Book Co. Leading off "Ballads" (and the whole book) is "The Ballad of East and West" ("... and never the twain shall meet"); this is its first appearance in a Kipling book, as it had appeared only in the 1891 poetry anthology LYRA HEROICA. Condition is near-fine, with light rubbing at the extremities. This American volume is considerably scarcer than its British counterpart. Richards A68; Stewart 110.

Description:
1901. [in 1901 dust jacket] London: Macmillan and Co., 1901. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth with Ganesha device in gilt, with dust jacket. First English Edition of the book that "is acknowledged as Kipling's masterpiece in fiction... The novel is the finest written about the India of the British Empire" [CGEL]. It follows the adventures of an orphan son of a British soldier who is raised by an Indian woman, becomes a disciple to a Lama, and ultimately becomes an undercover agent as well. The illustrations are by John Lockwood Kipling, the author's father. The American edition is considered to have been published earlier (though in the same month as the English one). As with most of Kipling's British editions published by Macmillan, the binding is red cloth with in gilt the "Ganesha" device -- an elephant's head with a swastika (the latter had been a ubiquitous symbol in India for millennia; its use ceased in the early 1930s, when events in Germany gave the symbol a whole new meaning).… Read more
