The Jungle Book

Author(s): Rudyard Kipling

Classics

An otherwise modest edition of the first volume of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book appeared in 1908, distinguished mainly by the inclusion of 16 breathtaking color plates by the gifted artist twins Maurice and Edward J. Detmold. This new hardcover of the most beloved of Kipling's classic stories contains all of the Detmolds' original color illustrations. The plates were scanned from a rare set of portfolio prints to ensure the greatest possible fidelity.
