Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, xvi, 196 pp, ills, facs. From the blurb: "Rudyard Kipling's Kim and The Jungle Books and Rider Haggard's She and King Solomon's Mines continue to attract a vast audience of readers and filmgoers to this day. But the story of these men's adventurous lives and the friendship they enjoyed are less well known than the books they wrote. It was a matter of course, moving as they both did in the small London literary world of the 1880s, that they should meet. What is surprising is that, while competing for the same reading public, these two popular writers should have liked each other from the start and quickly become close friends. But their friendship took root in similar experiences in their personal and professional lives and reached into the deeper ground of sympathetic intellectual and emotional points of view, political and social attitudes, and religious conviction. Rudyard Kipling to Rider Hnggard is the story of the friendship that grew up between these two men and which lasted for more than thirty-five years. It is also, in a single volume, the first edited collection of Kipling's unpublished letters and excerpts from Haggard 's diaries. Professor Cohen has brought together the surviving letters, diary entries, and other relevant documents, and woven them into a book that tells the full story of the friendship. 'Rudyard Kipling to Rider Haggard' contains forty-nine letters from Kipling to Haggard; two letters from Haggard to Kipling; twenty-seven entries in Haggard's diaries; one letter from Kipling to Andrew Lang; one from Haggard to his wife; one from Kipling to Haggard's secretary ; and descriptions of other holographs that have survived, particularly the plot outlines and character sketches from three of Haggard's novels on which Kipling and Haggard worked together. These documents help us understand how these men's creative imaginations worked, reveal their attitudes to the politics and events of their time, and show them, away from the limelight, opening their minds and hearts in conversation and in letters to one another." Slightly sunned at foot of spine, otherwise Very Good in a used dustwrapper. which is frayed at the foot of the spine. N° de ref. de la librería ABE-23353
