London: Macmillan and Co, 1927. Twenty-six volumes (of an eventual thirty-one). Large octavos. Holland backed blue boards, printed spine labels, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Some general slight tanning and shelfwear, occasional inner hinges cracking or cracked, occasional tan offsetting from endsheets to facing leaves, several of the spare labels absent (evidently utilized). Nonetheless, a good, reasonably sound set, ideal for binding purposes. From an edition initially limited to 1050 copies of each (through volume twenty) and thereafter to five hundred copies of each volume, printed on handmade paper, and signed by Kipling in the first volume. There was a hiatus after the publication of the 26th volume in 1927, and the remaining five volumes finally appeared in 1938, resulting in a number of extant sets terminating with the final volume present here, or with the 20th. RICHARDS D14. STEWART pp. 572-3. LIVINGSTON, pp.454-6.
