Descripción:

xiv & 344 pages; Clean and tight in the publisher's green cloth binding in original dustjacket. This is the familiar Doubleday American trade binding design for titles written by the popular Rudyard Kipling, with bold lettering in gilt on the front cover and spine, and a pair of stylized images of a sailboat impressed in black -- large on the front cover and a smaller device on the spine. What is much less familiar is the presence of the rare dust jacket on this copy. This jacket consists of a thin, buff paper stock and has lettering and a pictorial device centered on the front panel printed in dark green. We share the disdain which experienced booksellers have for the use of the phrase "good for its age." This is a formula applied all too frequently by the ill-informed or lazy. In this case, the former can be forgiven to some extent, as dust jackets over one hundred years old are very rare, indeed. As luck would have it, this example is genuinely very good for any age, and deserves careful description. The front panel states the title and author, with a half-tone pictorial device at the panel's center (this is a smaller version of the final illustration, which faces p. 298 in the text). Under this pictorial device is a short description, making it clear that this volume represents the return of the popular "Puck of Pook's Hill" -- under this is the original price: "Illustrated, 1.50." The spine repeats the texts (minus the description of contents) and price from the front panel, with a smaller circular pictorial device, and with Doubleday, Page & Co.'s imprint at the foot. The front flap has a list of the 21 titles available in "The Pocket Kipling" -- ("Rich, red leather" binidings, 1.50 plus 7 cents postage, each). The rear flap has a notice of the 1910 special edition of Kipling's "Collected Poems" (with illustrations by W. Heath Robinson -- 3.50 - 10 in leather). The rear flap has ads for three "New Publications" from Doubleday, Page ["The Motor Maid" by C. N. and A. M. Williamson; "The Power and the Glory" by Grace MacGowan Cooke; and "Queen Sheba's Ring" by H. Rider Haggard]. This rare and entirely un-restored dust jacket is integral and clean, but has chipping with minor losses at the spine ends (especially at the top, where the shallow losses continue across the top edge of the front panel and top corner, but this very narrow band of loss never touches the double rules which frame the front panel); minor wear and a couple of closed tears continue at the other edges, with some minor rubbing at the hinges of the spine, particularly the rear hinge, which terminates at the bottom with a separation at the final inch and a half. The spine and the edges show minor toning. The volume itself is remarkable -- clean and crisp stamping in gilt and black, and original lustre to the ribbed cloth, and unworn tight corners and hinges. The endpapers are clean and unmarked and the hinges are tight and unworn. There is a tiny flake of white at the very bottom edge of the spine; and the original owner enclosed a newspaper clipping with the text of Kipling's poem "Tommy" which has browned, and left a small rectangle of toning to the second page of the "Contents" and the facing leaf listing the "Illustrations" -- pp. x & [xi} -- the clipping has been retained, but is now in an archival mylar sleeve. There are four full-page illustrations by Frank Craig -- (the same illustrations appear in the 1910 London edition from Macmillan). Kipling was awarded the first Nobel Prize issued to a writer of English literature in 1907. 'Rewards and Fairies' consists of a series of short stories set in historical times with a linking contemporary narrative. Dan and Una are two children, living in the Weald of Sussex in the area of Kipling's own home Bateman's. They have encountered Puck and he magically conjures up real and fictional individuals from Sussex's past to tell the children some aspect of its history and prehistory, though the episodes, in keeping.
