The Jungle Book

By Kipling, Rudyard




RUDYARD KIPLING was born in Bombay in India in 1865 to British parents, and brought by a Portuguese 'ayah' (nanny) and an Indian servant, who would entertain him with fabulous stories and Indian nursery rhymes. He was sent back to England when he was seven years old, and lived in a boarding house with a couple who were cruelly strict. Fortunately he returned to India aged 16, to work as the assistant editor of a newspaper in Lahore. He began publishing stories and poems and eventually had great success with his book Plain Tales from the Hills. After his marriage Kipling settled in America, and it was here that he wrote The Jungle Book. He then moved with his family to England, where he wrote Just So Stories for his daughter Josephine who tragically died of pneumonia. Rudyard Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907 and died on January 18, 1936.

The Jungle Book; [together with:] The Second Jungle Book.

KIPLING, Rudyard.

London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1894 & 1895. 2 works, octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial designs gilt to spines and front covers, green endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a custom blue slipcase. Illustrations in the text throughout. Contemporary ownership inscription to title page of Jungle Book and gift inscription to front endpaper of Second Jungle Book. Lightly rolled, spines slightly faded and bumped at ends, covers lightly marked and a little cockled, tips rubbed, occasional very light foxing to contents, hinges of Second Jungle Book cracked. A very good set. First editions. The set comes from the library of the novelist Richard Adams (1920-2016), with his bookplate in both volumes. Adams's 1972 novel Watership Down was one of the most successful, and remains one of the most beloved, children's novels of the 20th century. Adams described Kipling as an enormous influence on his work, stating of him: "Kipling unimitated, inimitable Kipling, how shall I describe thee? Beyond argument, no one has ever written books more full of enjoyment for children", and that "Kipling has his finger firmly in the 'Watership Down' pie, and without him those lines would never have been written" (in Blishen, pp. 171-72). The two Jungle Books were collections of stories which had previously appeared in periodicals; originally published in book-form in a print run of 7,000 and 10,000 respectively, they went through numerous reprints and have remained two of Kipling's best known works.
