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 (1865-1936), [CRAIG, Frank, illustrator].

London: Macmillan and Co., 1910.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.xii; 338; [10], advertisements. With illustrations by Craig. Bound in publisher's red cloth, lettered in gilt to spine, with gilt 'elephant' motif to upper. Top edge gilt. In original printed dust-wrapper. Internally clean, with some spotting to page edges. Cloth is exceptionally clean, but for small area of sunning (beneath a chip on the jacket), and a simple reading crease to spine. Fragile wrapper shows some wear; with chips and tears in the obvious places, spine panel age-toned. A remarkable survival - no copies in wrapper are noted as sold at auction.� Short Stories and verse; includes "The Marklake Witches", "Simple Simon" and "If", which was voted Britain's favourite poem. A classic collection and one of the major Kipling titles, ranking alongside The Jungle Book, Kim, Puck and Stalky. UK copies in jacket are rare.

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.
