Item Number: 196291

Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1902.

Rare Tauchnitz edition of Kipling’s classic collection of stories, with 22 illustrations by Kipling himself. Small octavo, original cloth, illustrated by Rudyard Kipling. In very good condition. Rare in the original cloth.

Just So Stories has “achieved nursery immortality because a genius has married two of the most tried and trusted favorite media—the fable and the fairy-story” (Muir, 107). “Kipling’s own witty black-and-white drawings… together with their extensive and ridiculous captions, are one of the chief delights of the book” (Carpenter & Prichard, 285).
