Rewards and Fairies

By Kipling, Rudyard




Puck of Pook's Hill and Rewards and Fairies are classic children's books which speak powerfully to adult readers. Una and Dan, performing a scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream one Midsummer's Eve, accidentally summon Puck to a fairy ring near their Sussex home. Through Puck the children are witnesses to tales of English history, subtly called forth by Kipling's brilliant and fluid adventure writing. Kipling's historical imagination extends to a wide variety of stories, many of which blend the ghostly and the familiar, and often anticipate his later writing in their themes: a sense of loss and breakdown, but also healing. First published in magazines between 1906 and 1910, the stories were accompanied by some of Kipling's most famous poems, including 'If--' and 'The Way through the Woods'. This edition includes an introduction which dispels the myth that these stories are simply a nostalgic view of English history, discusses their relationship to other historical fiction, and relates them to Kipling's earlier and later writings.

REWARDS AND FAIRIES.

KIPLING. RUDYARD

Macmillan and Co, Ltd. London. 1910. FIRST EDITION. 8vo.(8.1 x 5.6 inches). Illustrated with four full page mono plates by Frank Craig. Neat previous owner name to the front blank free endpaper and some very light spotting to the fore edge but overall a better than very good copy. Publishers original burgundy cloth boards. Gilt lettering to the spine. Front board with raised circular Ganesha device in gilt. Top edge gilt. A bright and fresh copy. ------ Contains the Poem "If". Kipling's most enduring work of verse. A poll taken by the BBC in the UK in 2005 voted it as Britain's favourite Poem, polling twice as many votes as the number 2 choice, Lord Tennyson's The Lady of Shallot. Originally written in 1895, IF was inspired by the actions of Dr. Leander Starr Jameson, a British Officer whose forces were defeated by the Boers in 1895, but who was portrayed as a victorious hero by the British press, the poem is a powerful masterclass in maintaining the British stiff upper lip.

Rewards and Fairies (First Colonial Library Edition in Original Printed Wrappers)

Kipling, Rudyard

London: MacMillan & Co. Ltd, 1910. Paperback. Good. First edition, first printing, first state (?). Printed green wraps, 8vo (7-3/16 inches [18.3 cm] tall), pp. xii, 338, four B&W plates, publishers six page catalogue (unpaginated) beginning verso upper cover and ending recto (inside) lower cover. Catalogue is dated "N. 10. 7. 10." (10 July 1910) at foot of lower cover. Volume is soiled and toned with a water stain affecting heel of spine and lower cover, chipped spine ends and corners, rubbing to joints exposing mullin, light foxing to text block variously throughout, booksellers rubber and blind stamps to half-title page. Complete and still tightly bound. This copy appears to be an unrecorded and earlier state of the Colonial Library edition (Richards, 242) than previously seen. And, considering the evidence at hand may also predate the release of both the first UK and US editions. The volume is bound in green wrappers (instead of orange red wrappers), measures an 1/8 of an inch shorter than the Colonial Library edition described in Richards, A242 (p. 202), has a six page catalogue partially printed directly onto the inside of both covers (instead of an eight page insert), and shows an earlier publication date, by one month ("N. 10. 7. 10.") than the recorded ("CL. 10. 8. 10" [10 August 1910]") Colonial Library edition. In the six page publisher's catalogue, "Rewards and Fairies (No. 577) is the highest Kipling number shown and "Men, Women, and Ghosts" (No. 581) by Edith Wharton, is the highest number overall in the catalogue. "Men, Women, and Ghosts" was published in Oct. 1910 with the altered title of "Tales of Men and Ghosts" (Ref. Bruccoli v. 3 p. 344). The title change to Wharton's "Men, Women, and Ghosts" along with the July dated integral catalogue, point to this being an earlier state of the Colonial Library edition then heretofore known and perhaps, a publisher planned pre-Ocober publication date in the colonies for "Reward and Fairies". Ref. Richards, A242.
