DESCRIPTION:

PRESENTED HERE is the original 1894 American First Edition, First Printing of the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. The Jungle Book is a charming collection of seven short stories, drawn from Rudyard Kipling's travels throughout the world and particularly throughout the colonies of the British Empire. Travel in the 19th century was the privilege of the wealthy, and other parts of the world were vastly different from his home in Britain. Kipling shows the reader the different customs and ways of life in India, Afghanistan and the Bering Sea, in a way that is human and familiar, rather than foreign.

The best-known of the stories are the three stories revolving around the adventures of an abandoned "man cub" Mowgli who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle. As he grows up, he learns the ways of the jungle and the different personalities of its animals. He is accepted as a "wolf" by the other animals, but when he is finally exposed to humans, he begins to question his own identity. He resists the realization that he is human because he is dismayed by the greed and destructiveness of those who invade the jungle.

The most famous of the other stories are probably "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. As with much of Kipling's work, each of the stories is preceded by a piece of verse, and succeeded by another. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle. Throughout, the Jungle Book contains numerous illustrations, many of which were done by Kipling's father himself. As a whole, it is a most charming copy of this rare first edition children's classic.
