Product description

Presumed First (1909) edition of Kipling's poems of adventure and loss, reprinted from 'The Seven Seas', with 12 coloured illustrations laid in, each with a protective sheet giving a thumbnail sketch of the picture following.  The pictures and the many in line drawings, by W Heath Robinson, are very lovely.
