About This Item

London: Methuen and Co., Ltd, 1919. Moderate soiling to vellum, a few spots along top edges, otherwise fine. 8vo. xiii, 159, [1] pages. Title printed in red-and-black. Original quarter vellum, cream buckram boards, gilt-lettered on spine, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Provenance: Edward B. King (bookplate). DELUXE LIMITED ISSUE OF THE FIRST EDITION, one of 30 copies on Japanese vellum. The title refers to the period between the South African War and the Armistice in 1918. The book's forty-five poems and series of epitaphs is considered by some Kipling scholars as his darkest work. The trade edition was printed in an enormous run of 10,000 copies, and there were 200 copies on hand-made paper. This very limited issue of 30 copies on Japanese vellum is scarce in the market. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 957; Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature, p.170; Livingston 442; Martindell 164; Richards A320; Stewart 434.
