Description

A beautiful luxury gift book to cherish for years to come, The Complete Jungle Book is the ultimate edition for Jungle Book fans. With a foreword by award-winning writer and superfan Katherine Rundell, this book contains Rudyard Kipling’s best loved classic animal stories: The Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book, the bonus story The Cat That Walked by Himself and Kipling’s most famous poem, If.

Step into Kipling’s wonderful jungle and join Mowgli, Bagheera, and Baloo on their adventures in this one-of-a-kind book, featuring stunning illustrations and colour plates by Stuart Tresilian, original illustrations by J. Lockwood Kipling and refreshed colour art based on Tresilian’s drawings.

Macmillan originally published the first edition of The Jungle Book in 1894 and remained Kipling’s primary publisher his whole life. The Complete Jungle Book includes many illustrations by Stuart Tresilian, who illustrated these titles for Macmillan in the 1930’s. The final chapter is an illustrated account of the life and works of both Rudyard Kipling and Stuart Tresilian. The lively and authoritative non-fiction content draws on Macmillan’s rich historical archive to tell the real-life story of how The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book, were published, making this a perfect gift for Jungle Book fans of all ages

With a luxuriously designed and foiled die-cut cover, head and tail bands, green foiled edges and a ribbon marker, this truly is a gift edition to treasure.
