Item #57585 The City of Dreadful Night, and Other Places. Rudyard KIPLING.

The City of Dreadful Night, and Other Places.

Allahabad: A.H. Wheeler & Co., and London: Sampson Low, Marston & Company, no date [1891]. [Short Stories] FIRST UK COLLECTED EDITION. Octavo (22 x 14cm), pp.96. With the publisher's green paper covers, roughly re-backed in green card with the remains of the front cover taped over. With the errata slip to title page. A little toned and thumbed to title page, otherwise a nice clean copy. New card over spine and front sadly attached with tape, with the heavily chipped and torn original front cover also marginally attached with tape over the top. Good. As well as Kipling's eight chapters on his time in Calcutta, originally serialised in the Allahabad 'Pioneer' in 1888, this collection includes 'Among the Railway Folk,' 'The Giridih Coal Fields' and 'In an Opium Factory.'.
