First thin paper edition. An immediate success on publication, The Jungle Book was reprinted twice in 1894 and twice again the following year. "Kipling followed with The Second Jungle Book (1895), but the two sets of stories have rarely been united, despite the fact that the later book completed the Mowgli saga with five stories that relate closely to those in the first book and that are essential to its emotional rounding-out" (Grolier). The stories were loosely adapted into the 1967 and 2016 Disney movies of the same name.

In 1907 the Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Kipling, making him the first English-language writer, and the youngest ever, to receive the prize.
