This sale is for a vintage hardback FIRST EDITION entitled “Traffics and Discoveries,” by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936).
It was published by Macmillan and Co., Limited, of London, and is the 1904 FIRST EDITION.
The book is a combination of Boer war stories, naval stories, a farce about early motoring, and stories such as “They”, a study of a father who is mourning a dead child, and the mystifying “Mrs Bathurst”.

· Below the Mill Dam
The book measures 8 inches x 5.5 inches x 1.3 inches and has 393 pages, which are gilt edged to the top rims.
The book is in good neat condition for its age, save a nasty bump/bruise to the top front corner of the otherwise good original cloth hardback cover, with foxing near the covers and a little to the rims. There are NO inscriptions/book-plates and NO other ink or pencil markings in the book. The binding is very good with no loose or missing pages. There is no dust-jacket.
A wonderful vintage FIRST EDITION.
