Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known." In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. Among other honors, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he declined.

This is a fabulous midcentury set of books of Kipling's classics. With a dark red dust jacket in good condition. Some chips on dust jackets. (Now under mylar cover.) Book seller's mark inside. Some check marks on table of contents. Otherwise, clean and strong. See pictures for more evidence of condition.
