The Bombay Edition, one of only 500 possible complete sets signed by the author on the half-title. The Bombay edition was initially published in 20 volumes and limited to 1,000 copies. Kipling continued to write and the edition eventually grew to 31 volumes, but the last 11 volumes were limited to 500 copies only. Because later volumes were issued separately and at a lower limitation, complete sets such as this one are rare.
31 volumes, octavo. Attractively bound in recent brown morocco, red and green morocco labels, centre tool to spines gilt, marbled endpapers, decorative roll to boards, top edges gilt, others untrimmed.
A fine set.
