Why we love this
The Jungle Book & Second Jungle Book, by Rudyard Kipling. London: Macmillan, 1894, 1895. Both First UK Editions, first printings. Bound in original dark navy blue cloth, pictorially stamped in gilt on the front covers and spines. Book edges have been gilded. Both volumes have slight foxing in places to the text. Despite this, the boards and hinges (so often weak) are firm and there is only a touch of edge wear. A very collectible pair of one of the most famous children's books of all time.
