PUCK OF POOK'S HILL. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham, A.R.W.S.
New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1906. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black.
First (American) Edition, published on the very same day (2 October 1906) as the British edition. This is Kipling's version, in prose and verse, of the adventures of the mischievious sprite Robin Goodfellow. The American edition is the more sought-after, due to its four plates by Arthur Rackham (not in the English edition).
This is a near-fine copy, slightly rubbed at the extremities, with some foxing on the title page due to the frontispiece tissue; there is a Christmas 1906 gift inscription on the front endpaper. Richards A206; Stewart 307. Item #15240
