$65.00

Rudyard Kipling produced some of the most exceptional children’s stories and adventure novels of all time. The Jungle Books–a two-part narrative comprising The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book–are his most timeless contributions. They are a series of interrelated short stories following the exploits of the man-cub Mowgli and his animal friends and nemeses, such as Shere Khan, Baloo, and Bagheera. With film and television adaptations, cartoons, and more, The Jungle Books have remained culturally relevant for over a century. This collector’s edition is part of the Easton Press 100 Greatest Books Ever Written series. It pairs Kipling’s classic with illustrations by David Gentleman, a spectacular pairing.

This collector’s edition is in fine condition. In the original full green leather boards, finely gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine label. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in. David Gentleman’s illustrations superb.

A fine collector’s copy of The Jungle Books.
