The Jungle Book
Rudyard Kipling

Macmillan, London, 1894. Cloth. Book Condition: Good+, No Jacket. First Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 1st Edition, 2nd Imp 1894. Same format and published 1 months after the First Edition. 212pp. Bound in the original blue cloth, decorated with an elephant and riders vignette to the upper boards, spine titles in gilt to the spine. Spine ends with some wear and minor splitting, softened. Block slightly cocked, all edges gilt. Black endpapers, prev owner's name verso, slight age toning to the page edges. Frontis with attached tissue guard, albeit tanned. Pages are tight, some sporadic foxing, mostly to the outer margins. Rare title, which introduced the world to Mowgli and was later made into the (best!) Disney feature film.

British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling was born in India lived there & in England & wrote these stories when he lived in Vermont. The tales are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families & communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle." Other readers have interpreted the work as allegories of the politics & society of the time. The best-known of them are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian Jungle with the help of Baloo the bear & Bagheera the black panther, & then has to fight the tiger Shere Khan. The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, & "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. "The White Seal", in which the main character seeks a haven for his people where they would be safe from hunters, has been considered a metaphor for Zionism, then in its beginning. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, & succeeded by another.

MY GRADINGS

New: A new book, never used.

As New (AN): Although a used book, it should appear unread with no flaws, just as when it was sold new.

Fine (F): Should have no flaws, a perfect copy of a used book. Mint: Another term for Fine.

Near Fine (NF): May show a small flaw, such as shelf wear, but nearly perfect and unread.

Very Good (VG): The broadest category for used books, this describes any average used book. May have small flaws, and has probably been read, but should appear overall clean and attractive.

Good (G): Will probably have significant wear or damage, although is still intact. Suitable for reading, but not necessarily a good gift copy. The old saying in bookselling is "good ain't good."

Fair: Another term for Poor or Reading Copy: Heavily worn or damaged, a poor book will be readable but not attractive.

Binding Copy: This will be the complete pages of the book, but the binding has been broken or damaged to the point it will need professional rebinding
