Just So Stories For Little Children.
With illustrations by the author.London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1902 Stock Code: 134708
First-issue bindingFirst edition, first impression, in the first issue binding, of Kipling's collection of 12 stories and 12 poems including "How the Camel Got His Hump" and "How the Leopard Got His Spots." The white blocking to the spine failed to adhere on the first issue binding, with the result that most copies now lack significant portions of it; the paint formula was changed for the second issue.
Large octavo. Original red pictorial cloth, titles to spine and front cover in black and white.
With 22 full-page illustrations by the author.
Loss to blocking to spine as always for this issue, light rubbing to cloth and cockling to rear cover, endpapers and initial few leaves foxed, sporadic light foxing thereafter. A very good copy.
