Signed limited editionFirst and signed limited US edition, number 459 of 525 sets, volume I signed by the author; 12 presentation sets were also issued. One of the finest editions of Kipling's verse, handsomely printed on handmade paper, it is uncommon in the jackets.
3 volumes, large octavo. Original japon-backed boards, red paper labels to spines printed gilt, gilt motifs to front covers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jackets.
Title pages printed in red and black, facsimile frontispiece in volume I of a holograph poem by Kipling (specially reproduced for this edition).
From the library of Christian Heuer, with his bookplate. Touch of wear to a couple of tips, a near-fine set in unusually fresh condition, with the original jackets, spines slightly browned, a few minor chips and nicks, and a couple of short splits and small tape repairs to verso, still presenting nicely.
