Notes

First edition, number 310 of 525 numbered copies signed by the author, an exceptional set with the original dust jackets and glassines. A beautifully produced set, printed in Baskerville type by the Chiswick Press on handmade paper, and very much in the manner of the superb Sussex Edition of Kipling's works - "planned by Macmillan as a monument to the author who had been a pillar of the firm's prosperity" (ODNB). Some previously unpublished material was included by Kipling (six additional poems in the series "The Muse Among the Motors", together with a new Act (III) and additional notes for "The Marréd Drives of Windsor"). Richards notes that, according to the Kipling Journal for January 1930, the text was revised throughout by the author "with numerous emendations and explanatory subheadings".
