Kipling, R. The Day's Work. [ A single volume - Volume VI - from The Sussex Edition of the Complete Works in Prose and Verse of Rudyard Kipling ]. Macmillan and Co. Ltd, London, Sussex Edition, 1937.
From the limited edition of 525 sets of which 500 were for sale. The Sussex Edition is the finest edition of Kipling's works, sumptuously produced and also containing his final thoughts on the text, having been revised by Kipling in his last years. Kipling died in 1936 and the edition was published posthumously. Complete sets of the 35 volumes are rare and desirable : only 525 sets were produced and many of these were destroyed when the publisher's warehouse was bombed in 1941. Single volumes such as that offered here are in practice still harder to find : we have a handful only of such single volumes and this represents a possibly unrepeatable chance for one admirer of this early collection of his short stories, which first appeared in 1898, to acquire it in the most desirable edition. The contents of this volume are:

Full russet Niger morocco, handmade paper, gilt top, other edges untrimmed as issued, royal 8vo, vii, 422, [3] pp. One or two trifling scuffs to covers, otherwise Fine.

Kipling, R. The Sussex Edition of the Complete Works in Prose and Verse of Rudyard Kipling. [ Complete Set ] Macmillan and Co. Ltd, London, Sussex Edition, 1937-39.
Limited edition of 525 sets of which 500, signed by the author, were for sale. However many of these were destroyed when the publisher's warehouse was bombed in 1941. The Sussex edition is the definitive edition of Kipling's works, splendidly produced and much sought after by collectors. Some contemporary Macmillan advertising material described it thus: "[The Sussex Edition] had been planned some years before the author's death, and was designed to rank as the definitive edition of all his works in prose and verse, in the most complete and handsome form. Kipling had undertaken a detailed revision of the text for this purpose, and had autographed and numbered the first volume of each set. He left behind him careful instructions regarding the unpublished or uncollected writings which are so conspicuous and interesting a feature of the Sussex Edition. This material includes over sixty stories, articles, and speeches, besides such groups of papers as The War in the Mountains, Eyes of Asia, and Brazilian Sketches, none of them previously published in book form, if at all, in this country, and the whole of his early or uncollected verse." From a contemporary review in the TLS: "The publishers are justified in the use of the epithet "superb" to describe this edition. The fine hand-made paper and Bembo type are equally satisfactory : but perhaps the binding is still more notable. It is .. Niger leather, lettered and simply ornamented in gold. The volumes, though ten inches by six and three quarter inches in size, are comparatively slim and so easy to hold; and they have an air of durability and of being meant for reading as well as for keeping, which is not always the case with editions de luxe."

35 vols, royal 8vo, full russet Niger morocco, handmade paper, top edges rough-gilded, other edges untrimmed. . Set No. 15, signed by Kipling. Unobtrusive (1 cm) scratch to spine of volume 7, some spine bands just a trifle rubbed, otherwise a splendid Fine set. Contents exceptionally clean, with many volumes largely unopened.
