The Jungle Book

By Rudyard Kipling

The tales in The Jungle Book 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, and communities. Stories include the tale of "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the tale of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants", the tale of a young elephant-handler. The best-known fables are the three stories revolving around the adventures of Mowgli, an abandoned ‘man-cub’ who is raised by wolves in the Indian jungle.

This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

The Author

Rudyard Kipling

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift.”
